Calgary Flames versus St. Louis Blues

Scotiabank Saddledome

Calgary, Alberta

The Flames have points in three of four, but all four of those have ended in a loss of some kind. They’ll try to find the win column tonight against the Blues!

We start at morning skate, where the starter’s net remained unchanged from the previous two games.

Per Salim Valji of TSN:

While improving his play despite some soft goals, Markstrom lost his last two starts in shootouts andhasn’t seen any run support. He is making his third straight start. He brings an 8-74 record into tonight’s contest with an .897 SV% and a 2.82 Goals Against Average.

The Blues are averaging 2.91 goals per game, which might bode well for the netminder’s chances.

Chris Tanev did not skate this morning and expected to be unavailable for the second straight game dealing with a head injury. Connor Mackey has been on the roster in his stead.

Milan Lucic looks to return to fourth line action tonight after three healthy scratches in a row, and will likely sub in for Brett Ritchie.
