Oh Micheal Ferland. Are you a sight for sore eyes! The Flames will welocme the rugged winger back to the top line tonight as the Flames start game 1 of a crucial three game road trip. Now, Micheal Ferland wasn’t exactly lighting it up when went down 2 weeks ago. #79 hasn’t found the back of the net in 11 games and only had 2 points over that streak. But when Micheal Ferland is going, so is that top line. The Flames experimented a little when he was out and the results were, let’s say, bad.
Jon Gillies will get another start in net tonight in place of the injured Mike Smith and the struggling David Rittich. Gillies finds himself 2-2-0 in his 4 starts, but he has played well. After scoring 10 goals in his first two starts, the Flames have scored 1 goal is his has last 2.
