The Flames aren’t “messing” with their lineup as the pairings are the same as they’ve been for a few games now. The only change is Mike Smith being back in net tonight for Calgary. David Rittich played well in the Flames 2-1 OT victory over the Sabres Tuesday night and he was in net for the Flames 3-2 OT victory over the Avalanche earlier this year, so naturally Mike Smith gets the nod.
