RALEIGH - The Flames lineup for Sunday's matinee match-up against the Hurricanes is in flux.
Yesterday, Travis Hamonic (who left Friday's game with a lower body injury), Mark Jankowski and Elias Lindholm missed practice in Raleigh and their status for today's game has not been disclosed.
Today's projected lineup is speculative, based upon Friday's game in Washington and yesterday's practice. Jankowski and Lindholm initially hit the ice yesterday, with both leaving early for undisclosed reasons - the lines are based upon them being available for today's contest. If either are unable to play, Austin Czarnik could draw into the lineup.
Johnny Gaudreau - Sean Monahan - Elias Lindholm
Matthew Tkachuk - Mikael Backlund - Michael Frolik
Sam Bennett - Mark Jankowski - James Neal
Andrew Mangiapane - Derek Ryan - Garnet Hathaway
Mark Giordano - TJ Brodie
Noah Hanifin - Travis Hamonic or Rasmus Andersson
Oliver Kylington - Rasmus Andersson or Dalton Prout
Both David Rittich and Mike Smith practiced on Saturday and while Bill Peters didn't announce his starter in Raleigh, he did say both goaltenders would likely play on this trip. If that remains the case, it would be David Rittich getting the start this afternoon.
