The Calgary Flames have made a single line-up change from Game 3 for tonight's Game 4, but it's a doozy.

Per the NHL's official game sheet for the game, the team has inserted Lance Bouma and Micheal Ferland into the line-up in place of Markus Granlund and Josh Jooris. It's Bouma's first game since April 7, when he was injured blocking a shot against the Arizona Coyotes, and Ferland's first since leaving Game 1 against Anaheim with an upper body injury.

FGD Round 2, Game 4: The Swing Game (7:30pm MT, SN West)

With their season very much up in the air on Tuesday night, the Calgary Flames stepped up and seized Game 3 with a 4-3 overtime victory - fueled very much by a late-game push while the Anaheim Ducks faded in the third. Now with the series lead for the Ducks trimmed to just 2-1, this is the biggest game of the season.

A win, and Calgary goes back to Disneyland with the series knotted up at 2-2. A loss, and the Ducks fly home with a 3-1 series lead and a chance to end the series on Sunday night in Anaheim.

The Flames were decent in Game 2 and pretty good in Game 3, and got better as Game 3 progressed. The Ducks will likely try to match Calgary's desperation. They're a deep team, and a smart team. The Flames will need to play a very strategic, intelligent, intense game in order to pull another victory out.

Puck drop is just after 7:30pm MT on Sportsnet West and Sportsnet 960 The Fan.
