Calgary's projected lines, D pairings and starting goaltenders

by RYAN DITTRICK @ryandittrick /

Fans will get their first look at Calgary's new goaltending tandem tonight as the Flames host the Vancouver Canucks at the Scotiabank Saddledome.

David Rittich will get start and play the first 30 minutes, while Cam Talbot will tag in at the midway point of the second period and finish the game.

While the Flames will be sending a much younger group to Victoria, B.C., for the other half of tonight's split-squad action, many of the team's vets are staying behind and will dress in the home portion, including 12 players from last year's roster.

Milan Lucic, 2019 first-round pick Jakob Pelletier and PTO's Devante Smith-Pelly, Zac Rinaldo and Andrew MacDonald, meanwhile, will all make their Flames debuts.

Check out the projected forward lines and D pairs for tonight's game in Calgary:



Johnny Gaudreau - Sean Monahan - Elias Lindholm
Sam Bennett - Mikael Backlund - Michael Frolik
Milan Lucic - Derek Ryan - Jakob Pelletier
Zac Rinaldo - Glenn Gawdin - Devante Smith-Pelly



Mark Giordano - TJ Brodie
Noah Hanifin - Travis Hamonic
Andrew MacDonald - Robert Hamilton
