Wait, Riley Sheahan? Seriously? Cool!

Mitch Callahan is up to provide the discount Steve Ottiness on the fourth line and the skeleton crew on defense is the same as it was versus the Canucks. Without a 7th defenseman on the roster, here’s to hoping everybody makes it through tonight ok. I mean, it’s not like we’ve ever lost a defenseman to injury playing in Calgary before...

The Flames are in the top wild card spot in the West right now and made a couple of depth moves to get Michael Stone and Curtis Lazar. The ol’ Lazar-beam won’t be in, as he’s battling injury, so at least we won’t be giving up his first goal of the season.

Not a lot of expected change after the skates, since the Wings currently have zero skaters that can come in last-minute, but we’ll give you more updates at midday.
