A quick rundown on the lines and pairings used during Tuesday's skate

by TORIE PETERSON @ToriePeterson /

The Flames were without one veteran during Tuesday's practice at the Scotiabank Saddledome.

Mikael Backlund, who left Saturday's game with a lower-body injury in the pre-season win over the Oilers, did not practice with the team but skated on his own this morning.

Calgary general manager Brad Treliving deemed his absence as precautionary and expects him to be back with the group for Wednesday's practice and ready for Thursday's season-opener in Denver.

Without Backlund's participation, here are how the lines shook out on Tuesday morning:


Johnny Gaudreau - Sean Monahan - Elias Lindholm

Matthew Tkachuk - Sam Bennett - Michael Frolik

Milan Lucic - Derek Ryan - Andrew Mangiapane

Tobias Rieder - Mark Jankowski - Austin Czarnik


Mark Giordano - TJ Brodie

Noah Hanifin - Travis Hamonic

Oliver Kylington - Rasmus Andersson

Michael Stone


David Rittich

Cam Talbot


Matthew Tkachuk

Elias Lindholm - Sean Monahan - Johnny Gaudreau
