The Dallas Stars are first in the Western Conference with a record of 19-5-0 while the Calgary Flames are 13th with a record of 8-14-2. But don't write off the Flames just yet. They may have had a rough three-game road trip, but they seem to do better at home.

They return to the Saddledome in Calgary tonight to host the Stars in the first of 5 home games.
There seems to be a few roster changes as Markus Granlund has been added to the second line and Mikael Backlund has been moved down to the third line during morning practice. As well, David Jones has been added to the first line and Jiri Hudler has been matched with Sam Bennett and Markus Granlund. That's not to say those will be the lines tonight, it's just an idea of what you'll be seeing if Hartley confirms the changes.
#Flames lines looked something like: Gaudreau-Monahan-Jones; Bennett-Granlund-Hudler; Raymond-Backlund-Frolik; Colborne-Stajan-Ferland— Pat Steinberg (@Fan960Steinberg) December 1, 2015
So we will see if the Flames can keep the pace of their home wins or if records hold true and they fall to the Western Conference first-place Stars.
Go Flames Go!
