The Calgary Flames will be without their leading goal scorer Andrew Mangiapane when they host the Nashville Predators on Tuesday night.
Mangiapane, who leads the Flames with four goals and is second on the team with seven points, was suspended for one game for cross-checking Seattle Kraken forward Jared McCann in 6-3 win on Saturday.
With their 5-2 win over the Edmonton Oilers on Saturday, the Vegas odds of the Predators’ making the Stanley Cup Playoffs shot up.
Fresh off his NHL debut on Saturday, Marc Del Gaizo was paired with Tyson Barrie during practice on Monday morning. It appears the 24-year-old blue-liner is on track to skate in his second game Tuesday against Calgary.
