The final game of the Penticton Young Stars Classic tournament for your Calgary Flames will also be the final game of the tournament as a whole, as they face-off against the host Vancouver Canucks (6pm MT; Fan 960 and webcast).

Hopefully there's no line brawl..

The Flames split their two games thus far, with a 6-4 win over the Jets and a 4-3 loss to the dang Oilers. The Canucks have yet to win a game at their own tournament, with a 4-3 overtime loss to the Oilers and a 5-4 overtime loss to the Jets. The Canucks are desperately going to try to get a win to save face, while the Flames would love to make up for a penalty parade that cost them their game on Saturday night.
