Projected Lines: CGY @ ANA



Projected Lines

Calgary Flames versus Anaheim Ducks

Honda Center

Anaheim, California

The Flames are 2-0-1 so far on their California road trip, and the final stop before heading back to Alberta for the Christmas break is in the formerly cursed Honda Center!

Our line projections start in the blue paint, where on the second half of a back-to-back we’d wholly expect Jacob Markstrom to get the nod. While Dan Vladar has started consecutive games this year, two games in two nights seems like a stretch, even with the holiday break on the horizon.

Markstrom’s last outing saw him allow 24 goals on 27 shots against the Sharks for a 7-3 win. It brought his numbers up to 10-8-4 on the season with a 2.88 Goals Against Average and .893 Save Percentage though 23 appearances. It’s been an up and down run for Markstrom so far, so we’ll see how a start against a 21-point Anaheim team and a holiday break will help.
