Storylines: The Flames will be without Rene Bourque. The Calgary forward was slapped with a five-game suspension for elbowing Washington’s Nicklas Backstrom in the head. Bourque has 13 goals and three assists… Tuukka Rask has allowed one goal in his last 216:08 of ice time… Jay Bouwmeester leads Calgary with 26:08 of average ice time per game. Bouwmeester is one of the comparables for Dougie Hamilton, whose World Junior Championship run for gold was halted in the semifinal by Team Russia… Assistant GM John Weisbrod was formerly Boston’s director of collegiate scouting… Calgary is only one of two teams without a shorthanded goal. The Bruins are the only club that hasn’t allowed a shortie… Steve Kozari and Wes McCauley will be the referees. Derek Nansen and Tony Sericolo will be the linesmen.
