Play It Again, Dan!



Projected Lines

Calgary Flames versus Dallas Stars

American Airlines Center

Dallas, Texas

The Flames road trip continues through the Lone Star state with a matinee matchup in Dallas.

Our lineups start in the crease, where it looks like Darryl Sutter will play the hot hand.

Per Eric Francis of Sportsnet:

This will be Vladar’s second straight start, and he’ll face a Stars squad that is eighth in the league in scoring. He carries a 7-4-4 record overall this season alongside a .910 Save Percentage and 2.64 Goals Against Average. Vladar had 25 saves against St. Louis on Thursday to grab the W.

Of note, forward Jakob Pelletier and defenseman Connor Mackey both dressed and skated for warmups today but did not participate in line rushes. There were no changes outside of the crease for skater lines and combinations.

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 on January 7th. With Zohorna heading back down the other way as of January 13th, this leaves the active roster at 22 for the time being.

Lineup Looks:


Barring any major changes when lineups are submitted, they are projected as follows:

FORWARD 1: Dube-Lindholm-Toffoli
