The Calgary Flames are in action in southern California as they take on the Los Angeles Kings. Fans were hoping that this game would matter more than it does. Alas, the Flames would be officially eliminated from Stanley Cup contention with anything other than a win in regulation here as things look excessively bleak for the Flames.

The lineup looks very reminiscent one of a team that's tanking sans the picks to show for it. Johnny Gaudreau is back in New Jersey due to a family emergency, Matthew Tkachuk is still injured, Sean Monahan has been shut down for the season, and T.J. Brodie is still out. The likes of Tanner Glass, Chris Stewart, and Troy Brouwer being the lineup bodes poorly for the Flames who are all but dead.

Still healthy for the Flames is Mike Smith. He'll be between the pipes for the Flames. He'll square off against Jonathan Quick for the Kings.
