It appears Jacob Markstrom will get the start in goal on Monday when the Calgary Flames return from their bye week to face the New York Rangers.

Markstrom was in the starter’s crease at morning skate and is listed as the goaltender on the team’s projected lineup.

Dan Vladar has started in Calgary’s past three wins.

The 33-year-old Markstrom hasn’t recorded a win since Jan. 6 against the New York Islanders.

Markstrom has started 33 games, while Vladar has got the call for 17.

A reigning Vezina Trophy finalist, Markstrom is 13-13-5 with a 2.86 goals-against average and .893 save percentage this season.

Meanwhile, defenceman Christopher Tanev, who has missed the past two games with an upper-body injury, was on the ice for morning skate on a pairing with MacKenzie Weegar.
