Bennett (lower-body) skated on his own on Tuesday; hoping to return on Thursday.

Bennett will miss his second straight game with a lower-body injury but the Flames are hopeful he will play Thursday vs. the Panthers. Even if he does play, the former No.3 overall pick should be left on free agency--he has just two points (1G / 1A) and is playing just 12:40 ATOI in nine games this season.

The Flames have assigned Alan Quine to Stockton (AHL).

Quine made his season debut on Sunday with Sam Bennett and Andrew Mangiapane out, but Mangiapane will play Tuesday so Quine heads back to the AHL. The 26-year-old forward has one goal and four assists (five points) in four games with the Heat.

Talbot will start Tuesday vs. the Capitals.

Talbot allowed one goal on 30 shots in the Flames win in Anaheim on Sunday. With David Rittich getting yanked on Saturday, the Talbot will stick with the hot-hand tonight vs. Washington. Talbot has stopped 54 of 58 shots (.931 SV%) to start his Flames career but draws a tough assignment vs. a Capitals team that is averaging 3.60 goals per game (6th in the NHL) in 2019-20.

Rittich will start Saturday in Los Angelels.

Rittich allowed one goal on 28 shots in the Flames win over the Red Wings on Thursday. Rittich has been hot as of late, winning two in a row while stopping 48 of 50 shots (.960 SV%). The Kings offence has been solid early-on but they are still 2-5-0, so don’t hesitate to use Rittich on Saturday night.

Rittich will start Thursday vs. the Red Wings.

Rittich stopped 21 of 22 shots in the Flames win over the Flyers on Tuesday. It was a nice bounce-back game for Rittich, who gave up six goals in Vegas in his previous outing. The 27-year-old has been inconsistent to begin 2019-20, allowing at least four goals in three starts and less than two goals in the other three starts. Overall, he is 3-2-1 with a 2.80 GAA and .912 SV% and is a must-start against the Red Wings on Thursday.

Jankowski is expected to return to the Flames lineup on Tuesday.

Jankowski was a healthy scratch in San Jose on Sunday but is expected to replace Tobias Rieder vs. the Flyers. Jankowski, who will skate on a line with Sam Bennett and Austin Czarnik, has no points, four shots and a minus-4 rating in five games this season.

Rittich will start Tuesday vs. the Flyers.

Rittich gave up six goals on 30 shots in the Flames’ loss in Vegas on Saturday. Cam Talbot made his Flames debut in a loss to the Sharks on Sunday, so they will come back to Rittich on Tuesday. The 27-year-old netminder is 1-0-1 with a 2.00 GAA, .946 SV% and one shutout in two starts in Calgary so far.

Talbot will make his season debut in San Jose on Sunday.

David Rittich has started the first five games of the season but Talbot will make his Flames debut tonight in San Jose. The Flames have given up the sixth-most shots per game so far, so Talbot will likely be under siege against a Sharks team that is starting to find their way. Talbot was 11-17-3 with a 3.40 GAA and .892 SV% in 32 games with the Oilers and Flyers last year.

Rittich will start in Vegas on Saturday.

Rittich has been outstanding to start the season as he refuses to let Cam Talbot see the ice. The 27-year-old owns a .929 SV%, a 2.46 GAA, and a 2-1-1 record through his first four games. He'll see plenty of work tonight against a Golden Knights team that's averaging 34 shots per game.
