Scott Cruicshank reported via twitter that Pierre-Luc Letourneau-Leblond has been suspended for five games thanks to his hit from behind during the game in Vancouver on Tuesday. Leblonde was given a two minute boarding penalty and a 10 minute misconduct at the time.

Brent Sutter and Jay Feaster reduced the training camp clutter today, cutting some 19 players. Most aren't terribly surprising, with a huge bulk of the guys being assigned to Abbotsford.

Pat Steinberg has a good overview of the Flames home game here. Unlike him, though, I wasn't at the Saddledome rubbing shoulders with the important people. Instead I stayed at home and switched between internet feed and SNET broadcast so I could catch as much action as possible.
