A 5-2 win over the Detroit Red Wings on Wednesday night helped the Flames climb out of the Western conference basement, for now, and tonight they have the opportunity to get to within two points of the Nashville Predators with a regulation win.

They also have the chance to get back to .500, which means they'll probably crap out in some spectacular fashion.

Roger Millions tweeted earlier today that Bob Hartley will probably ice the same lineup tonight as he did in Wednesday's game, which means Roman Cervenka looks to be a healthy scratch once again.

It also looks like Brodie will skate on the top pairing again with Jay Bouwmeester. The youngster was shifted around between the top two pairings a bit in the last game so we'll see if he sticks this time. The kid has looked good in his promotion so far but given that Mark Giordano and Dennis Wideman were taking on Datsyuk et al. last game, It'll be interesting to see what kind of competition he's actually facing.

Tanguay-Cammalleri-Iginla

Glencross-Stajan-Stempniak

Comeau-Backlund-Hudler

Jackman-Begin-McGrattan

Bouwmeester-Brodie

Giordano-Wideman

Smith-Butler

Kiprusoff

The Predators did not practice this morning after playing last night in Vancouver, but here is their projected lineup according to that game:

Halischuk-Legwand-Boychuk

Yip-Smith-Erat

Spaling-Fisher-Clune

Kostitsyn-Butler-Bourque

Weber-Josi

Ellis-Hannan

Klein-Bartley

Rinne

Go Flames Go.
