Revenge: Calgary Flames @ Vancouver Canucks [Gamethread #2]

Well that was a rough start. The Flames didn't have a great debut last time out, faltering 5-1 to the rival Canucks. We'll call it "rust" and hope for a better result tonight, as the Flames once again take on the Canucks, this time in Vancouver.

How do they plan to beat the Canucks? Interesting question. Bob Hartley has chosen to shake up the lineup, giving Jonas Hiller and Mason Raymond their first starts of the season. Not that much of a step forward, considering that Brandon Bollig is still playing tonight and Josh Jooris is not. Here's the rest of the lineups:

Calgary Flames
Left Wing Center Right Wing
Johnny Gaudreau Sean Monahan Jiri Hudler
Mason Raymond Sam Bennett Michael Frolik
Lance Bouma Mikael Backlund Brandon Bollig
Micheal Ferland Matt Stajan David Jones
Left Defence Right Defence
Mark Giordano Dougie Hamilton
Kris Russell Dennis Wideman
Brett Kulak Deryk Engelland
Goalies
Jonas Hiller

Karri Ramo

Vancouver Canucks
Left Wing Center Right Wing
Daniel Sedin Henrik Sedin Brandon Sutter
Sven Baertschi Bo Horvat Radim Vrbata
Alexandre Burrows Jared McCann Jannik Hansen
Brandon Prust Adam Cracknell Derek Dorsett
Left Defence Right Defence
Alexander Edler Christopher Tanev
Dan Hamhuis Matt Bartkowski
Ben Hutton Luca Sbisa
Goalies
Ryan Miller

Jacob Markstrom

EDIT: Edler is missing tonight's game with illness, Yannick Weber will slot in, though we don't know where just yet.

I'm personally excited for Ferland-Stajan-Jones tonight, and doubly excited because they're starting. Brandon Bollig on the third line, not so much.
