Calgary Flames

Projected Lines: CGY vs VAN

New Year’s Eve Renewed Rivalry



Projected Lines

Calgary Flames versus Vancouver Canucks

Scotiabank Saddledome

Calgary, Alberta

The Flames are back home for the holidays after a successful one-game jaunt out to the left coast where they defeated Seattle 3-2.

Another foe from the Pacific Northwest will challenge Calgary tonight as the Canucks are in town for a New Years Eve tilt!

Our projections start in the blue paint, where we’ll get a switch.

Per Pat Steinberg of Sportsnet 960:

Markstrom yielded the crease against the Kraken as Dan Vladar started the second half of that back-to-back. He’ll be back in tonight having won three of his last four contests. Markstrom carries an overall statistical record of 11-9-4 with a .894 Save Percentage.

In roster news, Dennis Gilbert and Radim Zohorna were sent back down to the AHL as of December 29th, but Zohorna was recalled one day later on December 30th. This leaves the active roster at 22.
