Nicklas Grossmann didn’t impress in his first game and he won’t be skating with the Flames tonight.

To the delight of everyone, except maybe himself, Nicklas Grossmann is not in the lineup for the Calgary Flames. After being on the ice for Edmonton’s first two goals Wednesday night, one directly coming from a Grossmann turnover, Jyrki Jokipakka will make his regular season debut. Our “friends” over at Copper and Blue have the Oilers side of the preview and here’s their thoughts on tonight’s matchup.
