Gamethread: Calgary Flames Host Winnipeg Jets (34/82)

Pregame lineup info and intermission updates between the Calgary Flames and Winnipeg Jets

Bruce Fedyck-USA TODAY Sports


Flames. Jets. Saddledome. The last one before a short break. And a must-win for the home team.

The lineups are a little questionable right now because Hartley hasn't decided for sure if Lance Bouma will be back playing tonight or not.

If Bouma slots back in, the projected lines could look something like this (via flames.nhl.com) and it looks as if Josh Jooris could be sitting again. Michael Frolik has been listed as injured and Joe Colborne has made his way into the first line with Sean Monahan and Johnny Gaudreau. I've noticed that Big Joe has been pushing himself harder and working his way up the lines and it seems to be paying off. As well, it seems as though Karri Ramo gets the nod between the pipes again tonight in the last home game before the holidays.

Here's hoping this game isn't a repeat of the last match-up on October 16th, when the Flames lost 3-1 in Winnipeg. It's time for some vegeance and the Flames need to win this in order to keep their stellar home record going. This could be the tenth consecutive home win for the Calgary team if they can solve the Jets at the Saddledome tonight. And we will have all the updates right here on our gamethread.

Go Flames Go!
