Karri Ramo will get the start against the New York Islanders on Friday night.

The Flames come in just one point outside a playoff spot both in the Wild Card and the Pacific division. And Ramo owns a 10-6-1 record with 46 goals against through 22 games this season. Albeit from 2008 and 2009 while with Tampa Bay, Ramo is 1-2-0 in three starts with nine goals against on just 68 shots versus the Islanders.

Mark Giordano's undisclosed injury is related to his upper-body.

Giordano has already been ruled out for Friday's game, but beyond that there's been no timetable provided. Flames GM Brad Treliving said the team is taking a "wait and see" approach and that Giordano might be back in days, but it could also be weeks. Giordano leads all defensemen with 48 points in 61 games this season. With him sidelined, Corey Potter is projected to make his NHL season debut on Friday. If Calgary decides to dress seven defensemen, then Tyler Wotherspoon would likely play as well.

Mark Giordano (undisclosed) won't play on Friday.

The severity of Giordano's injury, which he sustained on Wednesday, still hasn't been revealed. He leads all defensemen with 48 points in 61 games this season. With Giordano unavailable, Corey Potter will probably make his NHL season debut on the Flames' third defensive pairing. The Flames might end up dressing seven defensemen, which would mean that Tyler Wotherspoon would play as well.

Mark Giordano (undisclosed) is being evaluated by the Calgary Flames.

Giordano sustained the ailment on Wednesday and Calgary hasn't provided much in the way of information yet. "Mark is still under evaluation — there's no update at this time," Flames head coach Bob Hartley said. "He's under evaluation so he’ll probably be, maybe a game-time decision." If Giordano can't play, then Tyler Wotherspoon, who was called up Friday morning, might be inserted into the lineup. Corey Potter is another possibility to dress in Giordano's place.

Curtis Glencross scored a goal and got into a fight in Calgary's 3-1 victory on Wednesday.

Glencross has 28 points and 39 penalty minutes in 52 games this season. That might have been his last game with Calgary as the Flames might trade him before the March 2 deadline given that he's set to become an unrestricted free agent this summer. "Until I get the call that says I'm something different, I'm a Flame," said Glencross. "We'll see what happens. I don't know what's going to happen."

Mark Giordano left Wednesday's game late in the third period after being unintentionally tripped.

Giordano was seen moving around normally after the contest, but he will be examined on Thursday, per coach Bob Hartley. Giordano leads all defensemen with 48 points in 61 contests in 2014-15. With the Flames in a heated battle to make the playoffs, losing him for any period of time would be a serious setback.

Calgary goalie Karri Ramo was solid Wednesday night, making 25 saves to help the Flames defeat the Devils 3-1 in New Jersey.

Ramo made several impressive stops during the third period's final minute, when Flames forward Mikael Backlund was penalized for delaying the game with 47 seconds remaining and Devils goalie Cory Schneider pulled for an extra attacker. Ramo's been very good lately. He turned in a first-rate performance in steering aside 29 New York shots in a 1-0 loss to the Rangers Tuesday night. He is now 10-6-1 on the season, with a goals-against average of 2.51 and a save percentage of .911. Depending on which team is opposing Calgary, Ramo might be a good fantasy choice in one-day leagues during the remainder of the NHL schedule.
Feb 25 - 10:24 PM

Sean Monahan scored his 21st goal of the season in the Calgary Flames' 3-1 victory over the Devils in New Jersey Wednesday night.

Monahan's goal, 35 seconds into the third period, was scored on a Calgary power play. It broke a 1-1 tie and proved to be the Flames' game-winning goal. Monahan has 41 points in 61 games this season. He is his team's leading goal scorer. Calgary's other goals Wednesday were recorded by Curtis Glencross, his ninth of the season, and T.J. Brodie, his 10th. Brodie's goal was scored into the Devils' empty net with 40 seconds left in the third period. The Flames' win ended their losing streak at three.
Feb 25 - 10:04 PM

Mason Raymond (family) will not be able to play again Wednesday night versus the Devils due to the birth of his child.

Raymond will miss his second consecutive game Wednesday night in New Jersey as his wife is expecting a child. It’s been a rough year for the 29-year-old veteran as he’s scored 11 goals and four assists in 37 games played, down from 45 points last season with the Maple Leafs. Maybe the birth of his child will ignite Raymond for the homestretch.
Feb 25 - 5:13 PM

Brandon Bollig and Corey Potter will both be healthy scratches Wednesday versus the Devils.

Bollig, 28, has played in 48 games with the Flames this season but Wednesday will mark the second straight game he will be scratched. He has a goal and two assists with a minus eight rating and 52 penalty minutes this season. Potter has yet to crack the Flames lineup this season and hasn’t played in an NHL game in nearly a year now. Neither player carry any fantasy value.
Feb 25 - 5:11 PM

Karri Ramo will start for the Flames Wednesday night in New Jersey.

Ramo was just handed a 1-0 hard-luck loss to the Rangers Tuesday night, but will be back at the helm for the Flames Wednesday night to take on the Devils. Wednesday will be the Finnish netminder’s 20th start of the season where he will look for his 10th win. He also has a 2.60 goals-against-average and .908 save percentage this season.
Feb 25 - 5:10 PM

Emile Poirier made his NHL debut in a 1-0 loss to the New York Rangers on Tuesday.

Poirier didn't manage to record a shot on goal, but he did have a hit in 8:10 minutes of ice time. Flames coach Bob Hartley praised Poirier for his use of speed to create chances. Poirier has offensive upside, but we wouldn't count on him having fantasy value during what's left of the 2014-15 campaign.
Feb 25 - 9:28 AM

Mark Giordano was held without a point for the third straight game on Tuesday as the Flames were shut out by the Rangers by a score of 1-0.

Amazingly, the talented rearguard has only suffered a longer pointless stretch once this season, when he went four games without a point is late December/early January. He is the definition of a fantasy stud.
