Let's get this thing going. The Calgary Flames open the regular season TONIGHT in Edmonton for the first of six games between the provincial rivals. The coronation has already begun up north, but cautious optimism seems to be the prevailing thought in Southern Alberta.

The Calgary Flames have officially signed forward Brendan Morrison to a contract. Numerous sources are now reporting it's a one year deal worth $725,000. It comes after a rash of injuries which have seen Calgary centres Daymond Langkow, Matt Stajan, David Moss and Ryan Stone all sidelined.

With the injury woes the Flames have endured over the last few days, it was good to see both Olli Jokinen and Rene Bourque skating with the game group this morning. Both have missed some practice sessions, but I think we can be a little more confident that both will be good to go come October 7th. Tonight, it's the Flames and Oilers at the Saddledome to finish off both of their preseason schedules (6 pm, Rogers Sportsnet Flames, The FAN 960).

The injury woes continue for the Calgary Flames, and as many expected, it wasn't great news Saturday afternoon when the team announced forwards David Moss and Ales Kotalik would be out indefinetely with seperate injuries. Moss left Friday's 5-1 preseason win over Edmonton with a shoulder injury while Kotalik left later on with a knee injury.

For the first time this preseason, the Calgary Flames take on the Edmonton Oilers with both teams still unbeaten in exhibition action (7 pm, Rogers Sportsnet Flames and The FAN 960). It's a game that could be looked at as a dress rehearsal for both teams, with close-to opening day rosters being iced on both sides.
