Ryan Lomberg......welcome to the NHL! The Flames recalled the winger from Stockton today and he will replace Marek Hrivik on the Flames 4th line tonight. Lomberg adds some......energy to the Flames 4th line as the Ontario product has racked up 84 PIM in 36 games this season in Stockton. Oh, and he’s familiar with the Oilers from this preseason:
David Rittich is the only other change to the Flames lineup as Mike Smith gets a well deserved rest before he heads to the All Star Game in Tampa this weekend. Rittich has been nothing more than outstanding this season in his 6 starts. He has a record of 4-1-1 with a GAA of 2.03 and a .932 Save %.
