Stone vs. Stone: Vegas' Mark Stone ready for game against brother Michael, Flames


Vegas Golden Knights left wing Max Pacioretty (67) fights for the puck with Calgary Flames defenseman Michael Stone (26) as goaltender David Rittich (33) looks on during the first period at T-Mobile Arena Saturday, Oct. 12, 2019.


Tomas Nosek scored his team-leading third goal of the season 3:24 into the game, jamming a loose puck into the Flames’ net after goalie David Rittich couldn’t contain a shot.


Cody Eakin made his season debut, returning to the lineup at center and having one shot on goal in nearly four minutes of ice time over five shifts.


When the Flames at 7 p.m. tonight visit the Knights at T-Mobile Arena, don’t expect the brothers to become emotional or make a big deal out of evening.


Also, the plan to rest goalie Marc-André Fleury, who is about to turn age 35, will be put on hold, as backup Malcolm Subban was injured in the first period this week against Arizona.


Oscar Dansk was promoted from AHL Chicago to serve as the backup tonight, and could start Sunday in Los Angeles with the Knights having back-to-back games.
