Bollig lit the lamp in Tuesday's 4-3 overtime victory over the Ducks in Game 3.

The Flames will be without Bollig's services for a second straight game Monday due to the illness. However, it appears the worst of it is behind him, as he will join the team in San Jose. While he won't return against the Sharks, it seems likely he'll be back for Thursday's game against the Kings.

Look for the Calgary Flames to give the recently acquired Brandon Bollig a bigger role than he had in Chicago.

Bollig saw fourth line action with the Blackhawks and still managed seven goals and 14 points last season while dishing out 203 hits. "The more you play, the better you feel, I think," Bollig said. "I loved my role here in Chicago, but when you change teams, you get the new look and new coaches think different things about certain roles and certain players. I'm excited to see where this takes me and, hopefully, expand my role and have a good exciting season up in Calgary. My time here in Chicago was amazing, and I'll never forget it. But it's going to be fun to help rebuild that organization." Look for Bollig to go from 10 minutes per game of action to 12-14, and get 12-15 goals and 25-30 points.
