The Calgary Flames finished their 2011 preseason with a 4-2 win over the Phoenix Coyotes Thursday at the Saddledome, a decent finish to their exhibition schedule.  The Coyotes iced a fairly veteran laden lineup and were probably the best competition the Flames have faced thus far; Calgary controlled most of the game and did some damage on the powerplay to even their preseason record at 3-3.
