CALGARY, AB -- The Calgary Flames host the New York Rangers tonight and could make lineup changes ahead of the match-up.
"We are looking at a few things here - lots based on our specialty teams. That's kind of what I'll say with the lineup," head coach Glen Gulutzan said.
Gulutzan did confirm Garnet Hathaway, who was recalled this morning, will not play and that Brian Elliott will get the start in net.
The Flames held an optional skate today so tonight's projected lineup is based off of Friday's practice and this morning's drills. Lines and pairings will be updated after warm-ups if necessary.
