Calgary Flames vs Pittsburgh Penguins
Looking to build on their hot start to the season, the Flames won’t be doing any lineup tinkering when they host Pittsburgh tonight.
The only question on the board was if Dan Vladar would see one of his expected weekly starts tonight, but that won’t be the case.
Per Salim Valji of TSN:
Based on this optional morning skate, it will be Markstrom in net tonight vs the Penguins https://t.co/2qW7wsn0Lb— Salim Nadim Valji (@salimvalji) October 25, 2022
Markstrom is coming off a 25-save overtime victory against Carolina on Saturday, and although he’s been shaky early in his three starts he will continue to garner the lion’s share of the workload for the forseeable future. He enters the contest with an .882 SV% on the young season.
With no changes looking to happen the rest of the way, the full line-up is projected as follows:
FORWARDS 1: Huberdeau-Lindholm-Toffoli
FORWARDS 2: Dube-Kadri-Mangiapane
FORWARDS 3: Coleman-Backlund-Lewis
FORWARDS 4: Lucic-Rooney-Ritchie
DEFENSE 1: Hanifin-Andersson
DEFENSE 2: Weegar-Tanev
DEFENSE 3: Zadorov-Stone
