 Given his playoff heroics, Martin Gelinas should be able to choose which line he'd like to play on with the Calgary Flames.

But being the good team guy he is, the 16-year NHLer will join whatever teammates Darryl Sutter decides on. Chris Simon's expected return from injury to the Flames lineup today could shuffle Gelinas back to a line with Chris Clark and Stephane Yelle, although he's proven terrific alongside Craig Conroy and Jarome Iginla on the top triumvirate.

"I'm willing to do whatever it takes," said Gelinas, who has two series-winning overtime goals out of the five total markers he's scored in these playoffs. "If it's a checking role, it's a checking role. If it's playing with Iggy, I'll try to drive the net and create things. Whatever's asked of you in the playoffs, you try to do it the best you can. We've been mixing lines and playing different guys on the powerplay. And everybody's been doing their job, so it's been good. It keeps you on the edge."
