Calgary Flames versus Philadelphia Flyers
The Flames are wrapping up a three-game homestand after picking up a big overtime win against the Rangers on Saturday. After the dub, it looks like we won’t see a change in net.
Per Pat Steinberg of Sportsnet 960:
Markstom will swap in Dan Vladar for the second straight gamer, after Vladar allowed five goals on twenty-four shots in an ugly loss to the rebuilding Red Wings last week. Dan was expected to get his shot at starting a few more games but that seems up in the air after he posted a .792 Save Percentage in that “show me” contest.
Markstrom carries his own woes into tonight, having picked up just two wins in his last nine games, but he is getting a second look after the OT win Saturday night. Overall he sits on an .891 Save Percentage for the year, and a 2.90 Goals Against Average. Markstrom has a 15-13-7 record.
Rasmus Andersson was day-to-day after his traffic accident suffered in Detroit last week. Injuries sustained caused him to miss three straight games, and Dennis Gilbert had subbed in for him since the injury. Rasmus made his return in the Detroit game, where he had one assist and one block. Gilbert, meanwhile, will swap in for Michael Stone this afternoon.
Barring any major changes when lineups are submitted, they are projected as follows:
Markstrom (start) Vladar (backup)
