Forward Blake Comeau is day-to-day with an upper-body injury. Comeau originally suffered the injury in Calgary's 3-2 loss against the Anaheim Ducks on Friday.
As a result of Comeau's injury, the Flames are expected to go with 11 forwards and 7 defensemen, meaning Anton Babchuk will see his first action since Jan. 17. Babchuk has been a healthy scratch for 18 consecutive games.
[He's] real confident with the puck now, getting it off his stick quick and no second-guessing. We need that. He's such a good guy in the room. He works so hard. That's the big thing. For not a big man, he just fights for every puck and when he scores, the guys appreciate that even more.
