Projected Lines: The Bottom Defence Pairing Stays The Same

Zadorov and Gudbranson get Darryl Sutter's confidence with another start.

NHL: Calgary Flames at Pittsburgh Penguins Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sports

Projected Lines

Calgary Flames vs Nashville Predators, 7 PM MT

Nikita Zadorov will draw back in the lineup tonight and will be partnered with Erik Gudbranson for the second game in a row. Once again that leaves Juuso Valimaki as a scratch and the odd man out. Not out will be Jacob Markstrom as he's been the hottest player on the Flames and may be the hottest player in the league right now. Markstrom has won 4 in a row, with three of those wins being shutouts.
