by ARI YANOVER @NHLFlames / calgaryflames.com

When the puck drops tonight against the Carolina Hurricanes, Jaromir Jagr will start on a line with young standouts Sean Monahan and Johnny Gaudreau.

The trio has already played as a line at times - and notched a goal as Gaudreau lit the lamp in Saturday's win over Vancouver - but this is the first time they've begun a game together (7 p.m., Carolina Hurricanes, TV: SportsnetFlames, Radio: Sportsnet906 The FAN).

AHEAD BY A CENTURY

On Wednesday, several Flames players sounded off on what Gord Downie meant to Canada

by ARI YANOVER @NHLFlames / CalgaryFlames.com

On Wednesday, it was announced that Tragically Hip frontman Gord Downie had passed away. He announced his diagnosis of glioblastoma - an aggressive form of brain cancer - in May of 2016, and engaged in a final cross-country tour with the Hip that summer, all the while continuing to work on musical projects. The impact of his death was felt throughout Canada, as well as the NHL, and the Flames were certainly no exception. See what they had to say about the musical icon's impact on Canadian culture:

ONE OF THE BEST

Think Mikael Backlund is one of the Flames' top forwards? Delve a little deeper and it is easy to see he's one of the league's top pivots

by ARI YANOVER @NHLFlames / CalgaryFlames.com

Mikael Backlund is good at hockey.

Like, really good.

If you've been paying attention the past couple of seasons, that statement won't come as much of a surprise. He's already back at it again this campaign: two goals, an assist, and a 54.35% Corsi-for rating, according to Corsica.hockey.

That puts him second on the Flames, right in between his linemates, Matthew Tkachuk and Michael Frolik. Though the season is still young, the 3M Line has already put together a 55.46% CF - one of the best lines of 2017-18 so far, all while being buried in defensive zone starts most other top lines don't even come close to seeing.

It's kind of what Backlund does. He takes the toughest assignments on his team, and he spins them into gold.

PERFECT UNION

Brodie and Hamonic becoming the standout defence pairing everyone envisioned

by GEORGE JOHNSON @GJohnsonFlames / calgaryflames.com

It was, in essence, something along the lines of a pre-arranged marriage.

Sight-unseen, expected to create a lasting union, forming an unbreakable, airtight bond.

Make it work.

No pressure, right?
