Wild at Flames Game Day

Complete Coverage >



The Wild are back in town tonight which means we will probably see another 2-1 game decided in a shootout or something along those lines, especially since the Flames' cobbled together forward units don't seem capable of much more these days. To add to the doom and gloom, Matt Stajan will apparently be centering the first line. That's not necessarily a slight on Stajan, but even someone watching their first ever NHL game could probably decipher that he's not a first-line centre.

Anyway, with Sven Baertschi returning to the lineup and Roman Cervenka a probable scratch, the Tanguay-at-Centre experiment has come to a close for now, as he moves back to the wing and Mike Cammalleri shifts to the middle with Curtis Glencross and Lee Stempniak. Here's what else Bob Hartley has in his bag of tricks for tonight's game (via Flames Nation):

Tanguay-Stajan-Iginla

Glencross-Cammalleri-Stempniak

Baertschi-Comeau-Hudler

Jackman-Begin-Aliu
