OMG! Moss back with Glencross and Jokinen

- February 29th, 2012

The Flames need a boost as they embark on their two-game road trip to Phoenix and Anaheim, and could get some in the form of David Moss, who appears ready to return for Thursday’s clash in the desert.

The winger, who has been out of action since November due to ankle issues — it was broken after he blocked a shot and then needed surgery when it wasn’t healing correctly — and skated on a line with Olli Jokinen and Curtis Glencross.

“When you miss that many games, it’s never fun watching. Hopefully I can bring a breath of fresh air to the team and some energy,” Moss said.

With Moss back in the lineup, coach Brent Sutter put Jarome Iginla on a line with Michael Cammalleri and Alex Tanguay.

Tom Kostopoulos  joined Matt Stajan  and Blake Comeau, making the fourth line Lance Bouma, Roman Horak and Tim Jackman.

Sutter said Miikka Kiprusoff will start in goal against the Coyotes, and was non-committal about whether he’d use him on consecutive nights or put Henrik Karlsson in the pipes against the Ducks the next night.

The Flames have a string of games all month — 17 in total — and return home for a Sunday afternoon tilt with the Dallas Stars, so Sutter will have to turn to Karlsson at some point.
