Projected Lines: CGY @ CHI

Whippin’ Into The Windy City



Projected Lines

Calgary Flames versus Chicago Blackhawks

United Center

Chicago, Illinois

The Flames will have a post-game deep dish pizza waiting if they can start their road trip off in Chicago on the right foot.

We start out check-in at warmups in the crease, where Jacob Markstrom is manning the starter’s net.

Per Pat Steinberg of Sportsnet 960:

This will be Markstrom’s fourth consecutive start, returning to the crease after stopping 24 of 25 against the Islanders on Friday at home. Dan Vladar has been riding the pine since December 28th. In his last seven starts, Markstrom has won five of them and has a GAA hovering just over 2 in that span. Overall, he carries an .897 Save Percentage on the year and a 2.72 GAA alongside a 13-10-4 record.

In other recent 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. Other Wranglers making the trip down the hallway are Walker Duehr and Jakob Pelletier who were recalled yesterday. This leaves the active roster at 23 for the time being.
