'MY GAME IS GROWING'

Bennett rounding into form as guy who can do everything for the Flames

by GEORGE JOHNSON @GJohnsonFlames / CalgaryFlames.com

Sam he is.

Or is becoming.

More and more.

"What's different?" repeats Flames GM Brad Treliving to the question put to him. "Identify a greatest growth area in Sam Bennett?

"Well, I'd say in just being himself. In being more comfortable in his own skin.

"In realizing he can be a major player here, can have a real impact and that that impact is not solely statistically based.

"We expect him to produce offensively and he will, he does. But he gives us a certain different skill set that not a lot of guys possess. 

"There's an abrasiveness, a competitiveness, a hardness, to him that you can't just walk down to the corner store and find any day of the week."

MOSH PITT

Five different goal-scorers lead Flames to victory over Penguins

by RYAN DITTRICK @ryandittrick / CalgaryFlames.com

For two of the first three games of the road trip, the Flames likely deserved a better fate.

But the normally red-hot, red-and-white-clad gunslingers hit a rare dry spell and just couldn't cash.

That, despite outshooting their opponents 91-57 in a pair of shootout setbacks.

Today?

The supporting cast came alive and all four lines contributed to what can only be described as the ultimate team win.

PROJECTED LINEUP - FLAMES @ PENGUINS

Calgary's projected lines, defence pairings and starting goalie

by TORIE PETERSON @ToriePeterson / CalgaryFlames.com

PITTSBURGH - The Flames will be without James Neal in this morning's game against the Penguins.

The veteran forward suffered a lower body injury in Thursday's game against the Panthers and has been ruled out of today's matinee match-up.

In response, the Flames recalled Curtis Lazar from the Stockton Heat. Either or Austin Czarnik could slip into the lineup today. Due to the uncertainty, today's projected lines are speculative, based upon Thursday's game and Friday's practice:

LINEUP NOTES - 15.02.19

James Neal won't play on Saturday, Mike Smith gets the start in Pittsburgh

by TORIE PETERSON @ToriePeterson / CalgaryFlames.com

PITTSBURGH - It's been a rough week for James Neal.

On Saturday in Vancouver, the winger took a high-stick to the face, knocking out eight of his teeth and forcing him to miss Monday's practice to get some dental work done.

He was able to play in Tampa, remaining unscathed in that tilt, but on Thursday in Sunrise, he suffered a lower body injury that knocked him out of the game.

On Friday afternoon, head coach Bill Peters confirmed he will be out in the final game of the Flames' road trip, a stop at PPG Paints Arena in Pittsburgh.

"Nealer's going to get looked at by the doctors when we get home."
