Game 3 is about to get underway for the Calgary Flames and Anaheim Ducks, and the home side has now officially made some line-up changes.
But not the exact changes that were anticipated earlier today.
Micheal Ferland remains out with an upper-body injury, while Markus Granlund replaces David Wolf in Ferland’s spot. As anticipated this morning, Tyler Wotherspoon has been replaced by veteran Raphael Diaz, who slots in beside David Schlemko on the third pairing.
With Granlund, a center, coming in, I’d imagine that Josh Jooris transitions to more of a winger role tonight, but that’s entirely guesswork, particularly considering that the Flames skated with their “regular” lines this morning with Ferland in his usual spot with Matt Stajan and David Jones.
