Matthew Tkachuk scored two goals in a 3-2 loss to the Montreal Canadiens on Thursday night.

The winger now has seven points in his last six games for the Flames. Thursday night's effort was also his fifth multi-point game of the season and first since Nov. 1. Tkachuk's a must-have if he's somehow still available on your waiver wire.

Michael Stone will not play on Thursday night against the Montreal Canadiens.

This will be the eighth time in Calgary's last nine games that Stone sits. Dalton Prout will also be a scratch.

It looks like Dillon Dube (concussion) will be held out of Thursday's game after all.

The good news is that Dube is no longer dealing with concussion-symptoms. However, after seeing Dube's performance during Wednesday's practice, Flames coach Bill Peters felt that Dube could use a bit more time to shake off the rust. He's been a full participant in the Flames' last two practices.

Mike Smith will be between the pipes Thursday night against Montreal.

Smith has lost his last two starts, but he played very well in Sunday's defeat versus San Jose. He has a 5-6-1 record this season with a 3.51 goals-against average and .877 save percentage.

There's a good chance that Dillon Dube (concussion) will return on Thursday.

"My head feels good," said Dube. "I’m feeling really good. The days I had here (skating without the team), I felt normal working out hard. There isn’t much of anything now but just making sure I’m good to go. The plan is to see what happens and go from there." He's been unavailable for the Flames' last three games. He still needs to be medically cleared, so nothing is set in stone yet.

At this rate, James Neal's first season with the Calgary Flames will be a significant disappointment.

Neal has just three goals and four points in 18 games this season. There's still plenty of time to turn things around, but by the same token we're deep enough in the campaign that his continued unproductive play is concerning. "I’ve just got to get myself going," Neal said. "Wherever I’m slotted in, I’ve got to do my best to help the team win. For me, I’m a guy who scores goals and has a good ability to get open and find spaces and get pucks to the net. I’ve got a good shot, but I’m not getting the amount of shots I need." He's not wrong about the lack of shots. He's averaging just 2.33 SOG per game, down from 2.85 last season. That being said, his shooting percentage is also at 7.1%, which would be a career-low for him if he doesn't improve. Outside of the 2018-19 campaign, his worst single-season shooting percentage is 10.4%.

Dillon Dube might be close to returning from a concussion.

Dube has missed the last three games because of the head injury. The 20-year-old has no goals an two assists in 14 games this season. He's still day-to-day at this point.

Anthony Peluso has been sent to the minors.

Peluso has a goal in five AHL games. He has also appeared in three games with Calgary, but he didn't record a point in those contests.

Mike Smith was outstanding in a 3-1 loss to San Jose Sunday.

After struggling for most of the first month of the season, Smith gave the Flames every opportunity to win on Sunday as he tried to steal the game from the Sharks. "He played great," defenseman Travis Hamonic said. "I don’t know how many 10-bell (saves) he had, probably five or six. Probably three or four in the second period and a couple in the third … he really held down the fort for us. I’m not just saying that. You can see the saves he was making. You wish you could have put a couple more on the board because of how well he was playing." Smith is 5-6-1 with a 3.51 GAA and a .877 save percentage but with more efforts like Sunday, he will become fantasy-relevant again.

Andrew Mangiapane suffered a lower-body injury in the minors Saturday.

The injury should keep him out of action for about seven days. He was one of the last players sent to the minors out of training camp. Mangiapane has five goals and 12 points in 11 games with Stockton and wants to be the first forward to be recalled from the minors in case of injury or poor play.

Mike Smith stopped 26 of 28 shots in Sunday's 3-1 loss to the San Jose Sharks.

Smith has been ice cold lately, going 2-4-1 over his last seven outings. Being outplayed by his backup, David Rittich, in the process. The 36-year-old Smith will have a chance at beating his two-game losing streak on Thursday night when the Flames host the Canadiens. Calgary's netminder will come into that game with a 5-6-1 record, a 3.51 goals-against-average and a .877 save percentage.

Sean Monahan scored a goal in Sunday's 3-1 loss to the San Jose Sharks.

Erik Karlsson blew out a tire at his own blueline, leading to Mark Jankowski feeding Monahan who had no trouble beating Martin Jones on the partial break. It's Monahan's ninth goal of the season, giving him 19 points in 18 games.
Nov 11 - 11:45 PM
