Scouting the Flames

Beware the wounded, angry team… The Calgary Flames sit in 10th place in the Western Conference and are coming off a frustrating overtime loss to Anaheim last night. Flames goalie Miikka Kiprusoff was pulled after he allowed three goals in the first six minutes, and then the Flames rallied from a 3-0 deficit, took a 4-3 lead then lost on Corey Perry’s overtime goal. Kiprusoff is scheduled to get the start tonight. The Flames also did some line-combination shifting during last night’s game, so it will be interesting to see how they come out tonight. Here’s the latest on the Flames, courtesy of the Calgary Herald and Calgary Sun, followed by the expected lineups for the Flames and the Kings and the full roster of the Flames…
