Projected Lines: Blake Coleman Tags Back In

Coleman is back in the lineup tonight but there are two glaring omissions for the Calgary’s lines.

Projected Lines

The Flames will be without Johnny Gaudreau tonight as he is listed on the Flames injury report due to an injury that happened in the second period of Calgary’s 4-3 loss to the Oilers on Monday. The good news is Blake Coleman will make his return to the lineup after sitting out a few games and he will slide into Gaudreau’s spot on the top line with Matthew Tkachuk and Elias Lindholm. Noticeably absent from Calgary’s lineup is Sean Monahan after he made his preseason debut on Monday night. There’s no word on why he’s not penciled in tonight, but it can be assumed the Flames are taking their time with Monahan after his offseason surgeries. Here’s the rest of the Flames who will be making the trip to Winnipeg tonight.
