Jonas Hiller stopped 17-of-18 shots in Calgary's 4-1 win over Buffalo on Tuesday.

Hiller wasn't overly busy in this game but the only shot to beat him was a perfectly placed re-direct in front of his crease. This was his first start since January 9 and it looks like he now has the run of the starts as Joni Ortio was sent back to the minors for the time being. Hiller is 14-13 with a 2.42 GAA and .912 save percentage on the campaign.

Johnny Gaudreau scored twice to help Calgary get past Buffalo 4-1 on Tuesday.

"Johnny Hockey" picked up right where he left off before the All-Star break-piling up points. He now has four points in his last three games and 37 total in 47 games played. The All-Star is as good as advertised. Josh Jooris picked up his fourth game winning goal of the year which leads all Flames players this season. Joe Colborne added the other goal for Calgary. Jiri Hudler also picked up two assists.

Sven Baertschi, David Wolf, and Tyler Wotherspoon will all be healthy scratches against Buffalo on Tuesday night.

Baertschi has had trouble establishing himself in Calgary. He has just 27 points through 65 games since the 2011-12 season. He's done better with AHL Adirondack with 17 points in 28 games, however. Wolf, a 25 year old winger from Dusseldorf, Germany, has 25 points through 31 games in the AHL. So perhaps he more worthy of your attention at this time.

Jiri Hudler will indeed play against Buffalo on Tuesday night.

Originally thought to be out due to illness, the Calgary's second leading scorer will instead dress. He leads the team with 14 goals and 39 points through 45 games, you should get him back into your lineup as quickly as Calgary has.

Jiri Hudler is battling an illness on Tuesday.

Hudler is being regarded as a game-time decision as a result. If he can't play then Joe Colborne will likely take his spot on the top line. Hudler has 14 goals and 39 points in 45 contests in 2014-15.

Curtis Glencross (lower body) skated on his own Monday.

Glencross might be able to return before the end of the week. He hasn't played since Jan. 15.

With the All-Star break over, it looks like Calgary won't recall Joni Ortio.

Although Ortio had a 1.98 GAA and .931 save percentage in five contests, the Flames want to put their faith in Jonas Hiller and Karri Ramo. To carry three goaltenders during this critical stretch of the season might disrupt their top-two netminders rhythm. "We've said it right from the start of training camp. We feel those two guys can carry the load and win some games for us," Flames head coach Bob Hartley said.

David Wolf has joined the Calgary Flames from the minors.

He has 12 goals, 21 points and 68 penalty minutes in 35 games with Calgary's AHL affiliate in Adirondack this year. The 25-year-old has not played in an NHL game in his career yet.
Jan 26 - 2:35 PM

The Calgary Flames have brought up Tyler Wotherspoon.

He was up with the Flames prior to the All-Star break, but he was a healthy scratch so he hasn't played with Calgary yet this season. Wotherspoon has two goals and 15 points in 39 games with Adirondack this year.
Jan 26 - 2:18 PM

Sven Baertschi has been called up by Calgary.

He has averaged just under nine minutes of ice time per game in 14 NHL appearances this season. Baertschi has three assists and 11 shots. In 28 matches with AHL Adirondack, he has five goals and 17 points.

Johnny Gaudreau got an opportunity to play on a line with fellow rookie Filip Forsberg during the All-Star Game.

Gaudreau assisted on both of Forsberg's goals. The two are among the frontrunners to win the Calder Trophy this season. "Yeah, he's a skilled hockey player," Gaudreau said of Forsberg. "It was a lot of fun playing with him and getting a chance to play with a whole bunch of other guys. I like how they rotated a few guys on our line, so us young guys got to play with a lot of different people."

Johnny Gaudreau will play in the NHL All-Star Game on Sunday.

There were initially some reports that he was included as an injury replacement for Sidney Crosby, then he was out, but he’s officially in now, which makes sense because Team Toews would’ve been playing the game a man short. Gaudreau is also participating in the breakaway challenge during the skills competition on Saturday. Gaudreau has 13 goals and 35 points this season.
Jan 24 - 7:15 PM

Johnny Gaudreau said that being a healthy scratch early in the season worked.

Gaudreau played in the first five games of the season but was struggling as he had yet to get a shot on net when coach Bob Hartley decided to sit him in the press box. "That was pretty eye-opening for me," Gaudreau said. "I think I was pretty nervous (about) getting sent down (to the minors). I went (five) games without a point or without producing offensively. I came back and was pretty concerned about getting sent down. Ever since that game, I kind of just took off from there." He certainly has as Gaudreau has 13 goals and 35 points with 97 shots on goal in the 41 games since the benching.

Johnny Gaudreau won't play in the All-Star Game after all.

He was originally expected to fill Sidney Crosby's spot, but the league decided to keep it vacant. Gaudreau is in Columbus either way for the rookie skills competition, which makes the decision to keep the slot vacant interesting.
Jan 23 - 5:57 PM

Johnny Gaudreau has been included on the All-Star Game roster.

The NHL needed a last minute replacement for Sidney Crosby and Gaudreau was already in Columbus for the rookie showcase. Gaudreau has 13 goals and 35 points in 46 contests in 2014-15.
