Who’s On The Ice Tonight?

The Flames will try stop a 4 game losing streak behind David Rittich.

Projected Lines

The Flames lines are the same as they were in Pittsburgh, but David Rittich will get the start in net ahead of Jon Gillies. After winning his first 2 starts Gillies has cooled off with 3 straight losses. Rittich wasn’t exactly setting the world on fire either. Since getting the nod as starter when Mike Smith went down David Rittich has gone 1-4-1 and seen his Save % drop to .900.

The goaltending isn’t all to blame. Calgary’s top two snipers, Johnny Gaudreau and Sean Monahan, have been no shows as of late. During the Flames current 4 game losing streak Gaudreau has 1 assist and Monahan has 0 points. The pair has picked a bad time to disappear as the Flames playoff hopes are circling the drain and they desperately need their top two players to start showing up.
