Projected Lines

Calgary Flames @ NY Rangers, 5 PM MT

Look at you Oliver Kylington! Once relegated to the dog house for who knows what reasons by many a coach, the Swedish blue liner has earned his shot and he’s getting it. Despite some tough love from Darryl Sutter, Kylington is getting ice time and he’s now paired with Chris Tanev and the results have been very solid. Nikita Zadorov started the season in Kylington’s place and it was a disaster to say the least. Since coming back into the lineup Oliver Kylington has stabilized the Flames defence and provides them with one of their best skaters and hardest workers on the ice. If it ain’t broke, don’t try to fix it.

As for the offence, just keep feeding Elias Lindholm and all will be right with the world. Here’s the rest of the Flames lines for tonight’s tilt with the Rangers from MSG.
