Flames coach Bill Peters has apparently seen enough. At first glance you think, "maybe the lines are different because Austin Czarnik got hurt." That's clearly not the case. Each line tonight has a new centre with Elias Lindholm handling the #1 centre duties with Matthew Tkachuk replacing him in the wing. Sean Monahan and Mikael Backlund have both dropped down in the lineup as well, centering the second and third lines respectfully.
Here's the rest of the new look Flames for the Heritage Classic.
Johnny Gaudreau - Elias Lindholm - Matthew Tkachuk
Andrew Mangiapane - Sean Monahan - Sam Bennett
Milan Lucic - Mikael Backlund - Michael Frolik
Alan Quine - Derek Ryan - Tobias Rieder
Oliver Kylington - Rasmus Andersson
