For the first time since 1995, the Calgary Flames open main training camp without Jarome Iginla. For the first time since 2003, they don't have a bonafide number-one goalie. Or a number-one center, but that's not really a “new” issue with this group. They also don't have a captain and the team is finally starting their long-awaited rebuild.

Well, 2013's prospect camp is now in the rear-view mirror for the Calgary Flames as players regroup and prepare for the grind that is main camp.
But as we look forward to main camp opening on Wednesday, let's look back at the overall performance of the fledgling Flames over the past week.

The Calgary Flames have had a nice trip to Penticton, having won both of their games. Now they have the chance to run the table when they face the winless San Jose Sharks. Game-time is 6:30pm MT and you can experience all the action via streaming video on the Flames site or on Sportsnet 960 The Fan.
The Sharks lost to the Canucks 3-2 on Thursday and the Jets 5-3 on Friday, while the Flames beat the Oilers 5-2 on Thursday and the Canucks 4-1 on Friday. Can the Flames keep their foot on the proverbial gas on Sunday evening?

Last night, the Calgary Flames got the YoungStars event off to a wonderful start. How? Well, they beat the Oilers by a 5-2 score and largely out-played their neighbours to the north. The challenge for the boys in red will be to continue that momentum one day later, as they face the Vancouver Canucks prospects at 8:30pm MT. While you can experience the action via a stream from the Flames website (or on Sportsnet 960 The Fan), bear in mind that the BC crowd will probably be cheering on the Canucks.
In other words, the boys are in enemy territory and will have to fight their way out.

Hockey's back, in the form of the Battle of Alberta from Penticton's YoungStars Tournament! The puck drops at 5pm MT and can be experienced via webcast from the Flames website.
Can the Flames start off the prospects tournament on a winning note against the team their kids have (hopefully) been conditioned to hate the most? We can only hope.
