Projected Lines

Calgary Flames versus Nashville Predators

Bridgestone Arena

Nashville, Tennessee

The Flames have come to the finish line of their five game road trip and have not suffered a regulation loss by carrying a 2-0-2 record over the first four games as the visitors. They’ll wrap it up tonight in Music City before heading back home.

Our projections start in the blue paint, where we’ll see a goalie swap.

Per Eric Francis of Sportsnet:

Backup Dan Vladar will head back to the pine after seeing two straight starts and Markstrom will see his first start since January 10th, at which point he was the starter in five straight games. He carries a 13-10-5 record overall with a 2.84 GAA and .893 Save Percentage on the season. Markstrom has allowed 3+ in three of his previous four games.

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.
