PROJECTED LINEUP - FLAMES @ LIGHTNING

Calgary and Tampa's projected lineups for this evening's game

by TORIE PETERSON @ToriePeterson / CalgaryFlames.com

It looks like Glen Gulutzan will keep his lineup intact from Tuesday's 6-5 overtime win in Nashville when the Flames take on the Tampa Bay Lightning at 5:30 PM MT (SNW, SN960).

On the blueline, Dennis Wideman and Jyrki Jokipakka are expected to be healthy scratches. Up front, Freddie Hamilton will also sit as a healthy scratch.

In net, Brian Elliott will make his fifth consecutive start.

"You look at the five goals, other than maybe Forsberg's goal where he walked out of the corner, there's not much he could do," Gulutzan said of Elliott's play in Nashville.

"You look at the saves and there were some big saves at critical times, even in the last minute of the game, some real big saves. A rush save on the shoulder on a 4-on-2 that we gave up that could have iced the cake for Nashville. I just through he made big saves."

Here are tonight's projected lineups for both teams:
