The Flames will be making at least one lineup change tonight, starting Chad Johnson in net when they face the Boston Bruins at 7:00 p.m. (SN, SN960).
Brian Elliott, who is 13-1-1 in his last 15 starts, did not skate this morning due to illness and while he may be able to back up Johnson, he will not get the start.
The Flames also could be making a change up front as Matthew Tkachuk was absent from practice and is dealing with a maintenance issue. He will be a game-time decision. If he is unable to play, either Curtis Lazar or Freddie Hamilton will slot ito the lineup.
Here are tonight's projected lines, defence pairings and goaltender:
Johnny Gaudreau - Sean Monahan - Micheal Ferland
Matthew Tkachuk - Mikael Backlund - Michael Frolik
Kris Versteeg - Sam Bennett - Troy Brouwer
Lance Bouma - Matt Stajan - Alex Chiasson
Mark Giordano - Dougie Hamilton
TJ Brodie - Deryk Engelland
Matt Bartkowski - Dennis Wideman
