Calgary's projected lines, pairings and starting goalie vs. San Jose

by TY PILSON @typilson /

SAN JOSE - There will be some changes to the Flames lineup for tonight's tilt with the Sharks.

Sam Bennett will be a game-time decision. He missed the morning skate due to illness.

"Right now question mark, he's got the flu," said Interim head coach Geoff Ward. "It's been running through our team a little bit so we'll see how he feels around game time, but we'll give him a few more hours to see if he can jump over it. It seems to be the 24 hour kind… we'll see how it goes with him and we'll make a call later."

Meanwhile, defenceman Travis Hamonic - who left Saturday's victory against the Canucks in Vancouver - returned to Calgary and has been placed on the IR.

Brandon Davidson will draw into the lineup for a defence corps already missing captain Mark Giordano , currently out with a lower-body injury.

The recalled blueliner Alexander Yelesin yesterday morning.

Below are the lines and d-pairings from this morning's skate in San Jose:



Johnny Gaudreau - Sean Monahan - Elias Lindholm

Andrew Mangiapane - Mikael Backlund - Matthew Tkachuk

Milan Lucic - Derek Ryan - Dillon Dube

Zac Rinaldo - Mark Jankowski - Tobias Rieder


Noah Hanifin - Rasmus Andersson

TJ Brodie - Michael Stone

Oliver Kylington - Brandon Davidson


David Rittich
