The Calgary Flames are headed to the United Center for the final time this year in what is the second of their three games against the Chicago Blackhawks. The Flames victory in Chicago only eight days ago has to be considered a bit of an upset. If they win here, they will have successfully won the series for the first time since the 2013-2014 season.
It looked like the lines would mix up a bit earlier in the day, but that might have changed or it might not have. Greg Gulutzan is embracing his inner Bob Hartley and making fans sweat a bit. As of right now, it looks like the lines will remain the same, but someone is apparently sick.
Brian Elliott remains in net as he's been phenomenal as of late for Calgary. He's stopped 59 out of 60 shots at even strength over the past week - almost always a recipe for victory. He'll need to be sharp again against a Chicago team that can really bring the offense.
