Flames' Mikael Backlund: Under the weather
Backlund missed Sunday's practice due to an illness.
This isn't a great time for the 30-year-old to get sick, as he's racked up eight points in his past six games. Backlund looks to be questionable for Monday's game against Anaheim, and expect an update from the team regarding his status prior to puck drop.... See More ... See Less
Flames' Matthew Tkachuk: Riding six-game point streak
Tkachuk registered a power-play assist, five shots on goal and a minus-4 rating in Saturday's 8-4 loss to the Blackhawks.
Obviously, it wasn't all good for Tkachuk, but the winger extended his point streak to six games. He's posted two goals and four helpers in that span. For the year, the 22-year-old is up to 48 points (19 tallies, 29 assists), 161 shots and 108 hits through 59 contests.... See More ... See Less
Flames' Milan Lucic: Grabs helper in loss
Lucic posted an assist, two shots on goal and two hits in Saturday's 8-4 loss to the Blackhawks.
Lucic now has 17 points, 163 hits and 71 shots through 58 games this season. He's at six points through eight games in February -- fantasy owners in deeper formats could use the 31-year-old for a late-season boost in physicality that might not hurt their offense too much.... See More ... See Less
Flames' Oliver Kylington: Picks up pair of helpers
Kylington managed two assists in Saturday's 8-4 loss to the Blackhawks.
This marked Kylington's second multi-point game in his career. The Swede now has seven points in 45 games -- three of those points have come in the last two outings. Despite the recent uptick in offense, Kylington shouldn't be counted on to produce often.... See More ... See Less
Flames' Johnny Gaudreau: Records two helpers
Gaudreau posted two assists -- one on the power play -- and five shots on goal in Saturday's 8-4 loss to the Blackhawks.
Gaudreau had a hand in both of Elias Lindholm's tallies in the game. The winger's strong February continued, as he now has a goal and eight helpers in eight games this month. Gaudreau is at 49 points, 175 shots and a minus-14 rating through 60 appearances.... See More ... See Less
Flames' Dillon Dube: Dishes pair of assists
Dube recorded two helpers and three shots on net in Saturday's 8-4 loss to the Blackhawks.
Dube set up both of Sam Bennett's first-period tallies. Offense has come in bunches lately for Dube -- he's only gotten on the scoresheet twice in the last 10 games, but he has five points in that span. For the season, the 21-year-old is up to 15 points, 51 shots and 42 hits through 35 contests.... See More ... See Less
Flames' Sam Bennett: Strikes twice in first period
Bennett scored a pair of goals and added two hits in Saturday's 8-4 loss to the Blackhawks.
Bennett kept things close with his pair of first-period tallies, but the Blackhawks ran away with the game after a four-goal second period. The 23-year-old forward took a turn at center with Derek Ryan (illness) unavailable, and Bennett showed some chemistry with wingers Milan Lucic and Dillon Dube. Bennett now has 11 points, 68 shots and 87 hits in 42 outings.... See More ... See Less
Flames' Elias Lindholm: Equals career-best goal total
Lindholm scored a pair of goals, with one on the power play, in Saturday's 8-4 loss to the Blackhawks.
Lindholm's two goals gave him 27 for the year, matching his career-best total from last season. He's been much less of a playmaker in 2019-20, as he's added just 21 assists for 48 points through 60 contests. The Swede also has 144 shots, 82 hits and 22 PIM. His 10-game point streak has seen him tack up seven tallies and five helpers in that span.... See More ... See Less
Flames' Cam Talbot: Takes loss in relief
Talbot surrendered three goals on 12 shots in Saturday's 8-4 loss to the Blackhawks.
Talbot relieved David Rittich after Alexander Nylander's first tally in the second period. The Flames offense was good enough to get Rittich off the hook, leaving Talbot with the loss. The 32-year-old dropped to 8-9-1 with a 2.65 GAA and a .921 save percentage in 21 appearances. Neither goalie has been hot lately, but interim head coach Geoff Ward may want to turn to Talbot on Monday against the Ducks after he posted a 44-save shutout against them Thursday.... See More ...

Flames' David Rittich: Chased from Saturday's game
Rittich allowed four goals on 15 shots in Saturday's 8-4 loss to the Blackhawks.
Rittich won't be on the hook for this one, as the Flames covered his damage, but it still counts as an ugly performance. He only lasted about five minutes into the second period before a turnover led to the Blackhawks' fourth goal, which got the netminder pulled. He remains at 22-15-5 with a 2.93 GAA and a .908 save percentage in 43 starts. The recent poor outings make Rittich a risky fantasy play going forward, although a meeting with the Ducks on Monday could be favorable if he gets the start.... See More ... See Less
Flames' Matthew Phillips: Back in action with AHL Stockton
Phillips (kneecap) will return to action in AHL Stockton's game Saturday.
Phillips missed about a month and a half after he required surgery to repair a fractured kneecap. The 21-year-old was better than a point-per-game pace with the Heat prior to the injury (30 points in 28 outings). Phillips will likely be sheltered at first, but if he can get back into form, he could be a candidate to jump to the parent club if the Flames need forward depth late in the season.... See More ...

Flames' Derek Ryan: Under the weather
Ryan (illness) will miss Saturday's game against Chicago, Pat Steinberg of Sportsnet 960 The Fan reports.
The 33-year-old will miss his first game of the season after becoming ill ahead of Saturday's action. Ryan has been a solid contributor for the Flames this campaign, racking up 10 goals and 28 points through 59 games. Expect another update on Ryan's status ahead of Monday's game against Anaheim, but in his stead, Mark Jankowski is expected to center Zac Rinaldo and Tobias Rieder on the team's fourth line.... See More ... See Less
Flames' David Rittich: Guarding cage Saturday
Rittich will start Saturday's home tilt against Chicago, Pat Steinberg of Sportsnet 960 The Fan reports.
Rittich has been shaky as of late for the Flames, going 2-3-0 along with a 3.67 GAA and .886 save percentage in his last five starts. The 27-year-old will get a decent matchup Saturday, however, taking on a Blackhawks offense that sits 20th in the league in goals per game this year.... See More ... See Less
Flames' Sam Bennett: Quiet in return
Bennett (illness) skated 10:12 with two PIM, a hit and a plus-2 rating in Thursday's 6-0 win over the Ducks.
Bennett missed two games due to the illness. The fourth-liner remains at nine points with 65 shots and 85 hits in 41 contests this season.... See More ... See Less
Flames' Michael Stone: Grabs helper Thursday
Stone recorded an assist, four PIM and a plus-2 rating in Thursday's 6-0 win over the Ducks.
Stone had a shot that John Gibson couldn't corral before Elias Lindholm knocked in the rebound for the Flames' opening goal. It was Stone's first point since he scored a goal in a win over the Wild on Jan. 5. The 29-year-old blueliner has five points, 49 blocked shots and 49 shots on net in 28 appearances.... See More ... See Less
Flames' Rasmus Andersson: Assists in three straight games
Andersson posted an assist, two hits and a plus-4 rating in Thursday's 6-0 win over the Ducks.
While he didn't generate a lot of offense himself, Andersson was typically on the ice when good things happened for the Flames. He's on a three-game assist streak and now has 18 points and 107 shots through 59 appearances this season.... See More ... See Less
Flames' Matthew Tkachuk: Pushes point streak to five games
Tkachuk generated an assist in Thursday's 6-0 win over the Ducks.
Tkachuk has collected two goals and three assists during his five-game point streak. The winger is up to 47 points, 156 shots and 107 hits through 58 contests. Keep him active while he's warm.... See More ... See Less
