  • Flames' James Neal: Quiet return to lineup

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/24/19) Neal (lower body) skated 12:12 with two hits and one shot in Saturday's 3-1 win over the Canucks.

    It's a lower ice time than his season average of 15:01 entering the contest. Neal slotted onto the third line, replacing Sam Bennett (upper body), but it was Mark Giordano and the Flames' fourth line contributing all the offense in the game. The veteran's spot in the lineup is probably safe while Bennett is out. Head coach Bill Peters may be hesitant to disrupt chemistry too much, which could leave Neal lost in the shuffle should Bennett make a speedy recovery.

    Flames' James Neal: Appears ready to return

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/23/19) Neal (lower body) practiced with the third line and second power-play unit in Saturday's morning skate, Derek Wills of Sportsnet 960 The Fan reports.

    This seems to indicate Neal will replace Sam Bennett (upper body) in the lineup after the former's 17-game absence. Neal has 15 points (five goals, 10 helpers) in 55 games this season, but rejoins a Flames team with 19 goals in their last five games, during which they've gone 4-1-0.

    Flames' James Neal: Won't play Thursday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/20/19) Neal (lower body) won't play Thursday against Ottawa, but could return Saturday against the Canucks, Pat Steinberg of Sportsnet 960 The Fan reports.

    Neal has been a full participant at practice since Friday's session, but he evidently still needs a few more days to get back into playing shape. Another update on the veteran forward's status should surface prior to puck drop Saturday night.

    Flames' James Neal: Could return Thursday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/18/19) Neal (lower body) may play Thursday versus the Senators, Wes Gilbertson of the Calgary Sun reports.

    Neal participated in full practice as an extra body Monday, while recent call-up Curtis Lazar taking line rushes on the fourth line. Neal has missed 15 games with his injury, and he'll be out for one or two more before working his way back into the lineup.

    Flames' James Neal: Joins practice

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/15/19) Neal (lower body) wore a regular jersey in Friday's morning skate, Pat Steinberg of Sportsnet 960 The Fan reports.

    It's another important step in the recovery for the veteran winger, who has missed 13 games with the injury and will likely tack on a few more to that total before returning. His return is not imminent -- he's not expected to play Friday's game versus the Rangers or Saturday's contest in Winnipeg -- but coach Bill Peters previously said Neal will be ready for the playoffs.
