Mike Smith will get his 5th straight start in net as the Flames go for their 4th straight victory. Bill Peters is playing the "win and your in strategy" with Smith as he's gotten the Flames at least a point over the last four games.
Oliver Kylington will ride the pine tonight in favour of Dalton Prout. Is he on the trade block? Maybe. Is he in the lineup to bring a little toughness against a Ducks team that likes to take liberties with the Flames? Most likely.
