CALGARY - The Flames will be making at least two lineup changes this evening when they host the Edmonton Oilers at 7:00 p.m. MT.

Head coach Glen Gulutzan has confirmed Matthew Tkachuk (day-to-day) will not play this evening and Sam Bennett will move up to play with Mikael Backlund and Michael Frolik. Chris Stewart will play tonight, likely skating on the third line.

While Gulutzan didn't confirm Nick Shore drawing into the lineup, Mark Jankowski did spend extra time on the ice after the morning skate, indicating Shore could take his place on the third line tonight.
