Rasmus Andersson Is On The Move......In The Lineup

The Flames rookie defenceman is getting a premium partner tonight.

The Flames have moved their offence back to normal, but the defence is getting a makeover. Oliver Kylington is out of the lineup and Dalton Prout will take his place in the bottom D pairing. His partner? T.J. Brodie. Brodie's on again off again game has seen him shuttled between the top pairing and the bottom pairing lately and tonight he's at the bottom. Taking his place up top with Mark Giordano will be Rasmus Andersson.

Mike Smith will return to the crease tonight for the Flames after David Rittich's solid play against Ottawa on Sunday. There's nothing to read into here as it makes sense to play Smith in one of these back to back games. Also, he's been REALLY good lately.
