The Flames have recalled Matthew Phillips from Stockton (AHL).

Phillips was a sixth-round pick (No.166 overall) in 2016 and could make his NHL debut on Tuesday. The 21-year-old leads Stockton with 25 points (9G / 16A) in 22 games this season. Matthew Tkachuk was banged up last night and Phillips could end replacing him if he can't play on Tuesday.

Talbot has gone 1-3-0 with a 3.29 GAA and .890 SV% on the road this season.

Talbot will start Saturday vs. the Kings.

Talbot allowed six goals on 37 shots in the Flames loss in Vegas on November 17th. David Rittich has started the last seven games but Talbot will get a start tonight vs. the Kings. He is 1-5-0 with a 3.23 GAA and .893 SV% six starts this season and isn't a great option, even against a Kings team that played last night.

Rittich stopped 34 of 36 shots in the Flames win in Buffalo on Wednesday. Rittich has been superb in his last three outings, going 2-0-1 while stopping 105 of the 112 shots (.938 SV%) that he faced.
