In news that probably shouldn’t be terribly shocking given they’re down 2-0 in their series, the Calgary Flames have made some line-up changes prior to Game 3 against the Anaheim Ducks.
This is per reports from those at morning skate today.
@NHLFlames coach Hartley confirms D Raphael Diaz drawing into lineup tonight. Missed 12 games with injury.

Ferland said he was ready this morning, but it’s a coach/medical decision. Hartley said The decision would be made at game time. #Flames

This means that Tyler Wotherspoon is out, and if Michael Ferland does slot in, it’ll likely be David Wolf that comes out.
Per our pal Pat Steinberg of Sportsnet 960 The Fan, lines from practice:
Gaudreau – Monahan – Hudler
Ferland – Stajan – Jones
Bennett – Backlund – Colborne
Bollig – Jooris – Raymond
Russell – Wideman
Brodie – Engelland
Schlemko – Diaz
Long story short: Bob Hartley appears to be dancing with the line-up that got him to the dance.
