Czarnik Tags In, Neal Have A Seat

James Neal's 2018-19 season could end with him where he belongs....on the bench.

NHL: Edmonton Oilers at Calgary Flames Sergei Belski-USA TODAY Sports

With the Flames playoff lives hanging in the balance there are some changes to the lineup tonight. First, Sam Bennett gets a well deserved promotion to the top line. Actually, is that a promotion?

Secondly Austin Czarnik will get a chance to shine in James Neal's spot and let's face it, he can't be worse than Neal.

The Flames best player in the series, Mike Smith, will remain in goal because without him this series is an even bigger nightmare.


Johnny Gaudreau - Sean Monahan - Sam Bennett

Matthew Tkachuk - Mikael Backlund - Elias Lindholm

Michael Frolik - Mark Jankowski - Austin Czarnik

Andrew Mangiapane - Derek Ryan - Garnet Hathaway


Mark Giordano - TJ Brodie

Noah Hanifin - Travis Hamonic

Juuso Valimaki - Rasmus Andersson


Mike Smith
