Calgary Flames versus Vancouver Canucks
Having dealt with some last minute lineup issues when they wrapped their roadie against Montreal, the Flames will had a couple different looks at morning skate today ahead of tonight’s clash with the Canucks.
We start in the crease, where it’ll be Jacob Markstrom tending twine for the second straight tilt.
Per Pat Steinberg of Sportsnet 960:
Markstrom comes on in a personal four game losing skid, but has been rounding into form. Lack of run support has turned into an issue, as he last turned in his best performance of the year stopping 37 of 38 on Monday in a shootout loss. He has an .897 SV% overall this year, and will face a Vancouver squad scoring 3.73 goals per game on the road.
Mackenzie Weegar was out Monday with a non-COVID undisclosed illness, and so was Elias Lindholm out Monday with an upper body injury. Both were present and took reps at morning skate today. Chris Tanev left Monday’s contest with an injury and did not participate this morning. Connor Mackey will remain subbed in for the replacement body after subbing for Weegar Monday.
Barring any major changes when lineups are submitted, they are projected as follows:
FORWARD 1: Huberdeau-Lindholm-Toffoli
FORWARD 2: Dube-Kadri-Mangiapane
FORWARD 3: Ruzicka-Backlund-Coleman
FORWARD 4: Lewis-Zohorna-Ritchie
GOALTENDERS: Markstrom (starter), Vladar (backup)
