Calgary Flames

Projected Lines: CGY vs NYI

Optional This Morning After Practice Yesterday



Projected Lines

Calgary Flames versus New York Islanders

Scotiabank Saddledome

Calgary, Alberta

The Flames return home from their one-game trip to the central prairies where they dropped a one-goal decision to the Winnipeg Jets. Tonight they’ll host an Islanders squad that comes to town on the second half of a back-to-back.

Today’s morning skate was optional after a full practice yesterday. The starter’s net was empty and Dan Vladar stayed behind late to get in a few extra reps, so we’d expect that to indicate another start for Jacob Markstrom.

Markstrom stopped 22 of 25 shots in Manitoba on Tuesday in the loss. He comes into tonight carrying a 12-10-4 record on the season alongside a .895 Save Percentage and 2.79 Goals Against Average.

In other 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 for the time being.
