Back at home

Sam Bennett is with a few grinders, so hopefully he doesn't have to do this tonight.

The Calgary Flames return home after winning their first game in eight tries. Their season is hanging by a thread and they'll likely have to go 15-1-1 or better to make the playoffs. They're currently last in the Pacific division.

They'll turn to Joni Ortio in net and a lineup that doesn't exactly look aesthetically pleasing. Line two is particularly frightening and one must wonder what Sam Bennett has done to deserve this. On defense, Tyler Wotherspoon draws in for the injured Jakub Nakladal

They'll square off against the San Jose Sharks as they continue their push towards the playoffs. They're coming off of a disappointing loss to the Canucks and will look to rebound tonight. Martin Jones will be in net and has performed amicably for them.
