Avalanche Warning!



Projected Lines

Calgary Flames versus Colorado Avalanche

Ball Arena

Denver, Colorado

The Flames wrap up their three game roadie after previously matching that with three straight at home, and will be up for a challenge against the defending champs!

The Flames will make a switch in the blue paint as they try to get back on the winning track.

Per Eric Francis of Sportsnet:

Markstrom will sub in for Dan Vladar, after Number 80 saw back-to-back starts in a back-to-back at Arizona and Vegas. The Avalanche are on a back-to-back of their own, having won four straight games and are coming off a 5-1 drubbing of the Winnipeg Jets last night.

Vladar posted a .862 SV% in his last start in Vegas, and previously allowed five goals on twenty-four shots in an ugly loss to the rebuilding Red Wings last week, which was his second loss in as many starts. He posted a .792 Save Percentage in that “show me” contest against Detroit and a .786 against the Coyotes before the loss at VGK, so the net will swap back to Markstrom.

Markstrom has had his own struggles, carrying a record of 15-14-7 on the season alongside a 2.93 GAA and an .889 Save Percentage into tonight.

Rasmus Andersson was day-to-day after his traffic accident suffered in Detroit. 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 rematch game on February 16th and remains in.

Gilbert, meanwhile, has been swapped back in for Michael Stone since February 20th, as Stone was placed in Injured Reserve for an undisclosed LBI the following day. Walker Duehr was called up at the same time and will play his third straight game tonight.
