01:30 Tampa Bay Lightning – Calgary Flames

Calgary Flames has started their away tour with two surprise victories over Montreal and Washington. In addition to home advantage, Tampa Bay has significant rest advantage as they played their previous game on last Saturday.

Despite of their recent success, Calgary's material is far from being a playoffs team in NHL. Furthermore, they are missing several forwards due to injuries. Also 2nd line winger Johhny Gaudreau has been battling with flu and was limited to just 11:15 minutes of ice time on Tuesday's game in Washington.

Tampa Bay has confirmed that their number one goalie Bishop will start at goal vs the Flames. Calgary's starting goalkeeper should be announced soon. Jonas Hiller has been playing great but after starting four games in a row, it could very well be former Lightning player Karri Rämö's turn to start.
