Calgary Flames vs Dallas Stars
Stanley Cup Playoffs Round 1 Game 7
There’s one major lineup change as we check in with warmup from the Saddledome just moments ago.
Per Derek Wills of Sportsnet 960:
Due to an injury sustained in Game 6, Chris Tanev will not play tonight. Coach Darryl Sutter has shuffled the lines in light of this, and returns to a traditional 12-6 forwards-defensemen setup. He had previously used an 11 forwards 7 defensemen lineup in three straight games of the series.

- Michael Stone remains in and skated on the second defense pairing alongside Oliver Kylington.
- Healthy scratches are D Connor Mackey, F Adam Ruzicka and F Ryan Carpenter.
- Jacob Markstrom will start in the blue paint, backed up by Dan Vladar.
