ANAHEIM - As per recent practices, the Flames are expected to run with the same lineup they used in Game 1 when they face off against the Anaheim Ducks this evening.
Freddie Hamilton, Curtis Lazar and Dennis Wideman are expected to be healthy scratches.
On the Ducks front, they will get forward Nick Ritchie back this evening. The winger had been suspended for two games in Anaheim's second last game of the regular season and was forced to sit out of Game 1 as a result.
"I missed that first one and it obviously sucks but big effort by our guys. Now I get a chance to get in there and help out a little bit and I'm really excited," Ritchie said.
Here are tonight's projected lines, defence pairings and goaltenders:
