CALGARY – Having missed two games due to injury, it comes as good news to Calgary Flames coach Bob Hartley that forward Curtis Glencross is a game-time decision.
Having finally iced a healthy lineup with the return of Mikael Backlund on Friday, Glencross missed a back-to-back set against the Los Angeles Kings with an upper-body injury but could return Wednesday night against the Detroit Red Wings.
“That’s great news for us because obviously he’s a big part of our forward group," Hartley said. "He’s a big part of our team. That was great news.”
Glencross has eight goals and 13 points in 22 games for the Flames this season.
Here’s Calgary’s projected lineup against Detroit:
Alex Tanguay – Matt Stajan – Jarome Iginla
Curtis Glencross – Mikael Backlund – Lee Stempniak
Jiri Hudler – Mike Cammalleri – Roman Cervenka
Steve Begin – Blake Comeau – Tim Jackman
Jay Bouwmeester – TJ Brodie
Dennis Wideman – Mark Giordano
Derek Smith – Chris Butler
Scratched: Cory Sarich, Anton Babchuk, Brian McGrattan
Injured: Paul Byron (hand)
