Gamethread: Calgary Flames vs LA Kings

The Flames have a tough battle tonight in California as they take on the LA Kings.

After making a trade move, sending Markus Granlund to Vancouver in exchange for Hunter Shinkaruk, the Flames sent Shinkaruk straight to Stockton. Whether or not we see the 2013 draft pick play in the NHL this season remains to be seen.

As for today's practice lines, according to Derek Wills on Twitter, Johnny Gaudreau and Sean Monahan are reunited with Jiri Hudler on the top line. Colborne, Backlund, Frolik have chemistry and will make up the second line. Bollig, Bennett, Jooris and Bouma, Stajan, Jones will hopefully create some truculent offense in the third and fourth lines.

Even though Kris Russell skated with the team today at practice, he's not expected to play as explained by Roger Millions on Twitter earlier today. Which leaves Micheal Ferland as tonight's scratched player.

For all the information on the Flames projected lineups, you can find it on the Flames website.

And I'll be giving you updated intermission summaries after each period in the comments section.

Go Flames Go!
