The Flames are placing an interesting lineup on the ice and Oliver Kylington could end up moving around a bit.

Projected Lines

As the Flames head to Edmonton they’ll be putting a different looking lineup on the ice. With Blake Coleman suspended, Brad Richardson on IR and Tyler Pitlick still listed as day to day, the Flames will use seven defencemen and 11 forwards. Oliver Kylington is slated to skate with Erik Gudbranson on the bottom defence pairing, but don’t be surprised if Kylington ends up on the Flames fourth line with Glenn Gawdin and Brett Ritchie. Oliver Kylington spent time skating with the Flames forward group at practice this week so be prepared for anything tonight.

Puck drop is at 8 PM MT from Rogers Place in Edmonton.
