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:
Johnny Gaudreau - Sean Monahan - Elias Lindholm
Matthew Tkachuk - Mikael Backlund - Michael Frolik
Sam Bennett - Mark Jankowski - Austin Czarnik / Curtis Lazar
Andrew Mangiapane - Derek Ryan - Garnet Hathaway
Mark Giordano - TJ Brodie
Noah Hanifin - Travis Hamonic
Oliver Kylington - Rasmus Andersson
