Giordano (hamstring) will be a game-time decision on Tuesday.

Giordano has missed the last nine game but was on the ice for the Flames morning skate and is listed as a game-time decision for tonight's game in Boston. If he plays, Giordano is expected to be on the top-pair with T.J Brodie and relegated to the second power-play unit after Monday's addition of Erik Gustafsson.

The Flames have acquired Erik Gustafsson from the Blackhawks for a 2020 third-round draft pick.

Gustafsson has been held out of Chicago’s lineup since February 19 in lieu of a possible trade. The 27-year-old broke out in a major way last season, scoring 17 times and adding 43 assists in 79 games. Chicago’s struggles on the power-play this year took a particularly harsh toll on Gustafsson’s numbers, as he managed just six goals and 20 assists in 59 games. He is set to become an unrestricted free-agent on July 1st.

Rittich will start Sunday in Detroit.

Rittich was pulled after he allowed four goals on 15 shots in the Flames 8-4 loss to the Blackhawks on February 15th. Cam Talbot ended up starting the last two games but Rittich gets a chance to get back on track with a nice matchup in Detroit. He's lost his last two while giving up a combined eight goals but stopped 27 of 28 shots in a winning effort in his first start vs. the Red Wings.
