Once again the goaltender position will be the only change tonight for the Calgary Flames. David Rittich will get the nod over Mike Smith and this one seemed like a no brainer. Rittich has played very well this season and Smith’s last start against Colorado was nothing to write home about. Here’s the rest of the Flames projected lines for tonight’s tilt with the Chicago Blackhawks from the Scotiabank Saddledome.
Johnny Gaudreau - Sean Monahan - Elias Lindholm
Matthew Tkachuk - Mikael Backlund - Michael Frolik
Sam Bennett - Mark Jankowski - James Neal
Derek Ryan - Dillon Dube - Garnet Hathaway
Mark Giordano - TJ Brodie
Noah Hanifin - Travis Hamonic
Juuso Valimaki - Rasmus Andersson
