The Flames finally snapped a four-game losing skid by beating the Colorado Avalanche 4-2 on Tuesday night in Denver. The Flames now move forward and look to pick up back to back wins on the road.
The next stop on the three game road swing is in Phoenix against the Coyotes and will conclude in San Jose Saturday night in the Shark tank.
The desert dogs are coming off of a 2-1 victory over the defending Stanley Cup champion Chicago Blackhawks on Wednesday night. With the victory, the Coyotes (5-5-5) snapped a three-game winless streak.
“We feel like we’re coming together." Coyotes Head Coach Dave Tippett said. "We’ve still got a ways to go, but players are starting to find their roles, find their niche on our team. Any time you can have success, it enhances that process. We’ll go home for two hard games and hopefully we can build on this.”
Coyotes captain Shane Doan did not play Wednesday night against the Blackhawks due to a lower body injury and is not expected to be in the lineup tonight. Also out for the Coyotes is Shane Hnidy and Kurt Sauer.
The Flames will see some juggling to their lines resulting in a completely new look for Friday night's game. Brendan Morrison will bump up to the top line centering Alex Tanguay and Jarome Iginla.
The second line will see Hagman, Backlund and Moss skating together. The third line looks to be Glencross, Jokinen and Bourque while the fourth line has Meyer together with Stajan and Jackman.
Miikka Kiprusoff is expected to start in net against Ilya Bryzgalov for Phoenix.
Gametime is 7:00 p.m. on TSN (HD)and The Fan 960 Radio.
