For Taylor, who took the loss in a 4-0 defeat against the Phoenix Coyotes on Feb. 18, it will be the second start of his NHL career.
"I feel that he had two great periods in Phoenix," Flames coach Bob Hartley said. "Joey MacDonald played quite a few games for us. Kipper [Miikka Kiprusoff] is getting healthier and he's getting closer, so we felt that at the same time as giving a break to Joey MacDonald, to have another look at Danny Taylor would be a good idea."
Prior to this season, the 26-year-old's only previous NHL action came in a relief appearance during the 2007-08 season as a member of the Los Angeles Kings.
Another chance to get between the pipes is important to Taylor, according to teammate TJ Brodie.
"It's been a long time and it's a big opportunity," said Brodie, who has played parts of two seasons with Taylor as a member of the Flames and Abbotsford Heat, Calgary's American Hockey League affiliate.
"It's always a big deal, getting a chance."
"We all know what Brian McGrattan brings to our hockey club, and at the same time the positive effects that it's going to have in our locker room and on the visitors' team bench at the same time," Hartley said.
"We just want to finalize a couple of things. For the first time this season, we'll have a game-time decision."
Here is the lineup the Flames likely will use Sunday:
