Paul Byron will play against his former Calgary teammates Tuesday night when the Flames visit the Bell Centre.
Byron has done well for himself since he was claimed off waivers by the Canadiens. He has generated personal bests with 13 goals and 28 points after just 47 contests this season. Byron had one goal and one assist in two outings versus Calgary last season after he joined Montreal.
Jonas Gustavsson got his first AHL start of 2016-17 on Saturday.
Gustavsson surrendered three goals on 21 shots, but his Bakersfield Condors earned a 6-3 win over Stockton. He's in the minors after a shaky stint with Edmonton where he posted a 3.10 GAA and .878 save percentage in seven games.
Carey Price will be between the pipes on Tuesday versus Calgary.
Price has recorded great numbers this season, but he has struggled lately. He has posted a 1-4-1 record in his last six starts and he has allowed three or more goals in nine of his last 11 appearances.
Sebastian Aho recorded an assist in Carolina's 6-1 loss to Washington on Monday.
Aho has recorded a point in three of his last four games. That's brought him up to 12 goals and 26 points in 47 contests this season. He ranks seventh on the rookie scoring list.
Michael Sgarbossa scored a goal in Monday's 3-2 overtime loss to Arizona.
He has scored two goals in the last three games and has four points in 22 NHL appearances this season between Anaheim and Florida.
The Calgary Flames have surrendered the first goal in each of their last eight games.
That trend obviously continued in Monday's 4-0 loss to the Toronto Maple Leafs. "I didn’t think we had trouble getting out of the gate, we just didn’t get the first goal," said Flames head coach Glen Gulutzan. "We had some good looks. We’ve got it here that we out-chanced them. They scored on their opportunities, and we didn’t score on ours. What we need to do is just stop squeezing and capitalize and just start playing. But I didn’t think that we were overwhelmed or out-played or put out in the first period. I thought we started well. They got a bounce toward the end of the first period." Regardless, Calgary is 2-5-1 over its last eight games, which has put the Flames in danger of losing their playoff spot.
Jared Coreau will start Tuesday's game against Boston.
He is coming off a tight 1-0 overtime loss to the New York Rangers on Sunday. Coreau has a 5-1-2 record with a 2.79 goals-against average and a .904 save percentage this season.
Jakob Chychrun has four points in his last four games.
That includes a pair of assists in Arizona's 3-2 overtime win against Florida on Monday. The 18-year-old rookie has three goals and 11 points in 38 contests in 2016-17.
