Markus Granlund (flu) will return to the Flames lineup Monday night versus the Dallas Stars.

Granlund was forced to miss the Flames last game Sunday night in Nashville but is ok to return to the ice Monday night. The 21-year-old has scored six goals and 10 assists in 42 games this season.
Mar 30 - 8:42 PM

Forwards Josh Jooris and Brandon Bollig and defenseman Corey Potter will be held out of Monday's game with the Dallas Stars.

Jooris is the most notable name of the bunch here as he had skated in the last four Flames games but with Markus Granlund returning from an illness, he will be listed as a healthy scratch Monday. On the season he has 12 goals and 22 points in 56 games. Bollig will sit for a third consecutive game while Potter has played in just two games this season; his last being on March 3rd.
Mar 30 - 8:39 PM

Jonas Hiller will start in net Monday night versus the Dallas Stars.

Hiller enters Monday night with underwhelming numbers as he carries a 22-18-4 record, 2.43 goals-against-average, and .914 save percentage on the year. He just started yesterday's game and made 27 saves in a 5-2 win over Nashville but will be back in the crease again Monday. He has appeared in 20 games versus the Stars in his career and has an ugly 5-12-1 record to go with a 2.77 GAA and .910 save percentage. If you have another goalie you could start Monday, we recommend benching Hiller.

Paul Byron didn't play Sunday because of a lower-body injury.

He was back in the lineup on Friday from the ailment, but it's still giving him some problems. Byron could be a game-time call, but Calgary is likely to feature the same lineup on Monday that they had on Sunday.
Mar 30 - 5:02 PM

Sean Monahan recorded an assist in a 5-2 win against Nashville.

Monahan has only been held off the scoresheet once in his last six games. He has 29 goals and 57 points in 76 contests in 2014-15.
Mar 30 - 8:33 AM

Kris Russell scored a goal in a 5-2 victory over the Nashville Predators on Sunday.

Russell snapped a four-game point drought and now has 31 points in 74 contests. He also blocked seven shots on Sunday, giving him an NHL-leading 269.
Mar 30 - 8:31 AM

Drew Shore (undisclosed) returned to action on Sunday March 29.

Shore missed six games due to the ailment. He had an assist and logged 10:05 minutes of ice time in Calgary's 5-2 victory over Nashville.
Mar 30 - 1:35 AM

Jonas Hiller made 27 saves in Calgary's 5-2 win over the Nashville Predators.

This was Hiller's first start in six games and his first win since March 13th. Nashville scored the first goal in the game but Calgary answered with two goals in the second period and another two goals in the second to jump out to a big lead. Hiller's record improves 22-18-4 with a 2.43 goals-against-average and a .914 save percentage in 47 games this season.
Mar 29 - 7:58 PM

Lance Bouma scored a pair of goals in Sunday's 5-2 win over Nashville.

The Flames surrendered the first goal of the game but Bouma got the ball rolling for Calgary as he scored the first of four unanswered goals. The 25-year-old now has three goals in his last four games and he has 16 goals on the season. Bouma finished the game with a plus-1 rating, three shots on goal and one hit in 16:37 of ice time. Kris Russell, Michael Ferland and Jiri Hudler also scored for the Flames.
Mar 29 - 7:39 PM

Brandon Bollig and Drew Shore were scratched from Sunday's tilt with the Nashville Predators.

Only Bollig has produced enough fantasy value to note, accumulating 68 PIMs and 133 hits over 59 games this season.
Mar 29 - 5:58 PM

Paul Byron and Markus Granlund were scratched from Sunday's tilt with the Nashville Predators.

After missing 17 games a lower body injury, Byron returned to Friday's tilt versus Minnesota and produced an assist, a hit, and a block. He has 19 points and 101 hits over 59 games this season. Granlund meanwhile has accumulated six goals, 16 points, and 39 hits through 42 games.
Mar 29 - 5:54 PM

Markus Granlund missed practice on Saturday due to the flu.

The forward has to be considered questionable to play Sunday against Nashville but it will be a game time decision. He has six goals and 16 points in 42 games with a minus-three rating but is on a three game scoring streak with a goal and two assists.
Mar 29 - 7:50 AM

Jonas Hiller will get the start between the pipes for Calgary on Sunday.

Hiller replaced Karri Ramo on Friday and now Bob Hartley will give him the start against the Predators. Hiller is 21-18-4 this season with a 2.44 GAA and a .914 save percentage. The Flames are in ninth place in the West so this is a very important game.
Mar 29 - 7:49 AM

Michael Ferland celebrated one year of sobriety on Friday.

Ferland has been a healthy scratch for three straight games but nothing was going to ruin his special day. "I watch those guys like a mother hawk, and I was noticing problems with Ferly," coach Bob Hartley said. "He opened up, and we got him some help. For me, coaching is to win hockey games but ... lives are way more important than careers. I don’t believe that you can have a career if you don’t have a normal life. That’s what I explained to him. He broke down in my office, and I went to see Brian (Burke) and we got it going. I’m tremendously proud of Ferly. He’s a changed man. Obviously, that’s going to be a daily battle, probably for the rest of his life, but he’s doing it with great pride and, obviously, we’re all very supportive of him. I think it’s a great victory for Michael." Congratulations to Ferland who has two points in 20 NHL games in his career, on the milestone.

Injured defenseman Mark Giordano (torn biceps) is travelling with the Flames on their current five game road trip.

Giordamo is out for the rest of the season after undergoing surgery in early March but that does not mean he cannot support his teammates. Giordano was a favorite to win the Norris Trophy before his injury as he had 11 goals and 48 points in 61 games. He will be force again next season.
