A nine day break follows Calgary's final preseason game tonight, as they take on the Phoenix Coyotes, hoping to finish their exhibition schedule with a bang (7 pm, Sportsnet West and Sportsnet Radio FAN 960). It's a 'Yotes lineup with plenty of NHL experience, so this will be one of the better evaluating opportunities the team has had to this point. They also want to put forth a solid effort heading into an extended break prior to their regular season opener.

The Calgary Flames got back on the winning side of their preseason schedule, using a 13 save performance from Henrik Karlsson to get by the New York Islanders 2-0 at the Scotiabank Saddledome. It's the second to last exhibition contest for the Flames, who easily controlled an overmatched Islanders squad who had next to no desire to be in Calgary. It wasn't a spectacular Flames performance, but they certainly didn't let the opposition do anything at all.

The Calgary Flames play their second to last preseason game tonight when they welcome the New York Islanders to the Scotiabank Saddledome (7 pm, TSN and Sportsnet Radio FAN 960). Calgary got some positive injury news yesterday, and as they move towards a healthier lineup, it looks to be pretty close to an NHL lineup tonight.

Flames GM Jay Feaster joined us on Sportsnet Radio FAN 960 Monday afternoon and gave us some good tidbits of information following Calgary's 14 training camp cuts earlier in the day. More than anything, the news items surrounded injuries with the team, as there were good news bits involving Jarome Iginla and Cory Sarich.

For the second time in as many nights, the Calgary Flames fell in preseason action to the Edmonton Oilers. After suffering a 2-1 loss Saturday in Edmonton, the Flames were shutout by their provincial rivals 3-0 Sunday. It was a game where the Flames controlled the play at even strength, but were unable to generate offensively on a consistent basis. Combine that with two powerplay goals against, and the Flames fell to 1-3 this preseason.
