Oliver Kylington will be back with the Flames tonight and skating with Michael Stone on the Flames bottom D pairing as Calgary heads to Arizona. Kylington will take T.J Brodie’s spot in the lineup while the veteran defenceman is at home resting after a medical episode at practice this week. Rasmus Andersson will move up to the top line to skate with Mark Giordano in move that may become permanent at some point this season.
Bill Peters has not decided on who will man the crease tonight for the Flames as they have a 5 PM in Vegas tomorrow as well. Cam Talbot started on Wednesday, taking a 3-1 loss to the Dallas Stars and it’s a decent assumption that both Talbot and Rittich will split these two starts.
