Sam Bennett got a goal and an assist in the Flames’ 4-1 win against the Canucks on Saturday night.

It went in with the goalie pulled, but it counts nonetheless. The points snapped a five-game spell without one. Bennett has 14 goals and 24 points this year. Of course, that doesn't tell the whole story as Bennett has nine goals since the start of January. Mikael Backlund and Michael Frolik also had a goal and a helper. Sean Monahan picked up a goal, too.

Jonas Hiller made 34 saves in the Flames’ 4-1 win against the Canucks on Saturday night.

Hiller was making his first start since Jan. 24. With Karri Ramo playing well, it’s unlikely this will help him get more down the road. Hiller has a 3.16 GAA and .882 SV%.

It's official, Brandon Bollig will play Saturday night against the Canucks.

The feisty forward has posted a whopping 56 PIMs and 60 hits through 25 games thus far, so if you're in need of his specialty then get him in your lineup.
Feb 6 - 10:02 PM

Markus Granlund, Joe Colborne, and Jakub Nakladal will each be scratched from Saturday's tilt with Vancouver.

While Colborne clearly boasts the most fantasy value, he's seen just five games since Jan. 11th. Granlund meanwhile has now played in 82 career NHL games, posting just 13 goals and 26 points with 36 blocks and 63 hits.

Jonas Hiller will face Vancouver on Saturday night.

It's been a trying season for Hiller who through 11 starts and 14 games has not been reliable. The veteran netminder has posted a 5-5-1 record with 41 goals against and an .882 save percentage. Yikes.

Sean Monahan registered an assist in a 2-1 loss to Columbus Friday night.

That means Monahan has been involved in all of Calgary's last five goals. He now has 15 goals and 34 points in 50 contests in 2015-16.

Brandon Bollig, Josh Jooris, and Jakub Nakladal will be scratched against Colmbus on Friday night.

Of the three only Bollig has managed to whip up some fantasy value. He's posted a whopping 56 PIMs and 60 hits through 25 games. Mighty impressive, though he hasn't played since Jan. 27th.
Feb 5 - 7:25 PM

TJ Brodie will indeed play Friday night against Columbus.

Brodie suffered a lower body injury on Wednesday when he blocked a Justin Faulk shot, leaving with 5:36 to go in the second period. "TJ told me he is fine to go and I checked with the medical staff," Flames coach Bob Hartley told Aaron Vickers. He's expected to partner up with captain Mark Giordano.
Feb 5 - 7:19 PM

T.J. Brodie (undisclosed) will be available on Friday.

There was initially some uncertainty about his availability, but Flames coach Bob Hartley provided an update. Brodie was able to participate in the Flames' morning skate, so this news isn't surprising.
Feb 5 - 1:45 PM

T.J. Brodie is dealing with an undisclosed injury that might keep him out of Friday's game.

Brodie is skating Friday morning, so that's obviously a good sign. He has four goals and 25 points in 40 contests in 2015-16.

Dennis Wideman issued a statement regarding his 20-game suspension.

"Firstly, I want to apologize to Donnie Henderson," Wideman said. "I feel awful about what happened. Hopefully, he’s recovering, and he’s going to be back on the ice soon, but I feel really bad about the whole situation. The last seven days have been tough. ... As far as the suspension goes, I’m really disappointed with the decision and the length of the suspension. I did not have any intent at any time to hit the official or hurt him or anything like that. I would never do something like that, and I’m pretty disappointed with the decision." The NHLPA has already appealed the suspension on his behalf, asserting that they have "medical evidence" that they believe shows Wideman didn't intentionally hit Henderson. Wideman did absorb a hit prior to the incident with a linesman that could have injured or concussed him, but he didn't undergo the concussion protocol so that would be troubling if true.

The NHLPA will appeal Dennis Wideman's 20-game suspension for hitting on linesman Don Henderson.

"We strongly disagree with the League’s decision to suspend Dennis Wideman," the NHLPA said in a statement. "Dennis has played in 11 NHL seasons and almost 800 games without incident. The facts, including the medical evidence presented at the hearing, clearly demonstrate that Dennis had no intention to make contact with the linesman. An appeal has been filed on the player’s behalf." Wideman's 20-game suspension makes sense in the interest of protecting the officials from any potential retribution from the players. Without officials clearly being off limits from physical violence, the integrity of the game is diminished. That said, if the NHLPA can prove that Wideman never intended to hit Henderson then that's another matter entirely. "The medical evidence" may refer to evidence that Wideman had been concussed as a result of a previous hit, which would be problematic if true because he didn't undergo the concussion protocol.
Feb 4 - 6:52 PM

Karri Ramo will play between the pipes on Friday.

Ramo will be going for his second straight win after stopping 28 of 29 shots on Tuesday. He has a 2.57 GAA and .911 save percentage in 35 contests in 2015-16.
Feb 4 - 3:54 PM

Johnny Gaudreau scored a goal and registered an assist in a 4-1 win Wednesday night.

Gaudreau has 21 goals and 49 points in 49 games this season. That puts him in a tie for sixth place in the league's scoring race.

Jiri Hudler had two assists in Calgary's 4-1 victory over Carolina on Wednesday.

Hudler has recorded at least a point in three of his last four games. He has six goals and 26 points in 42 contests in 2015-16.
