CALGARY (660 NEWS) — Head coach Bill Peters hopes a shakeup of his defensive pairings will infuse the Calgary Flames with a burst of energy, as they welcome the New Jersey Devils.

“To freshen things up,” Peters said after Thursday’s morning skate. “It allows us to help our transition with a lefty, righty in all three pairs. Stoney [Michael Stone] has been good when he’s been in, and I expect him to be good tonight.”
“Oliver Kylington was outstanding; I really liked him,” Peters added. “But, we don’t want him sitting either. Now what we want is him to be able to do is go down and kill penalties. So when he comes back up, that’s an option for us. We want him killing penalties. We want him on the left side.”
Calgary has won three of its last four games and is looking for back-to-back home victories after defeating Arizona in overtime two days ago.
