The Flames take on the Stars looking to get over .500. Puck drop is at 7:05 P.M. M.S.T. The lineup is... interesting.

Dallas employs Antoine Roussel who has a penchant for taking liberties with other teams' players. That could be why Tanner Glass has returned to the lineup tonight (or the coaching staff could have lost their minds as that fourth line looks absolutely abysmal in every fathomable fashion). Matt Bartkowski will also return to the lineup.

Mike Smith is back in net for Calgary. He'll square off against Kari Lehtonen for Dallas. Lehtonen has been bad to start the season with a .8611 save percentage in five-on-five situations.

Dallas has the advantage in just about every statistical category save for the aforementioned goaltending. Their special teams are the tops in the league and they have top-five possession numbers. While their shooting hasn't been good, they've still been better than the Flames. Calgary may need to go out and play their best game of the season if Lehtonen is on his game because Dallas has been frighteningly good otherwise.
