For Ottawa, the story is injuries, with Lazar, Hoffman, MacArthur, maybe Michalek, and of course Phillips all out of the lineup. The good news is Methot should be back in. It looks like Prince will be on the top line with Turris and Stone, and Puempel could slot in next to ZBad and Ryan. McCormick should be on the 4th line with Neil and Smith. If Michalek can't play, there will need to be another emergency callup.
For Calgary, new addition Dougie Hamilton has struggled. He is -11 with only one point so far. The Flames are 2-7-0 to start the year.
Anderson starts in net for the good guys, and will likely see Jonas Hiller for the Flames.
