Jacob Markstrom [3-3, 1.52 GAA, .945 SV%] It starts with the grid, powered by Daniel Vladar. The goalkeeper is expected to scratches Adam Wernerblueliner Conor Mackieand the attackers Ryan Carpenter And Adam Rosica. Chris TanevTonight’s status is unclear and we’re guessing he won’t be involved. (He did not participate in the morning skiing.) But we will update as more information becomes available.

When Flames have been good in the series, they have managed to avoid penalty issues, roll their lines with equal force, and generally just play with speed, structure and drive. When they’re not good, it’s similar to playing “good”, but more careless. The level of execution and battle was the primary difference between Flames’ victories and losses in this series.

Give the Dallas Stars credit: They made the Flames work on everything in the series. They have fought. They’re clogged up in the middle of the ice. They did a great job supporting their goalkeeper, as he was their best player and they were able to clear rebounds, knock out opposing players, and do everything they could to help Oettinger succeed. And the main players have played a major role in crucial times – they look at you, Joe PavleskyAnd Jason Robertson And Rob Hintz.
