The Calgary Flames will play their third preseason game tonight at the Saddledome when they take on the Tampa Bay Lightning (7 pm, The Fan 960). Calgary hasn't played since Tuesday, when they took 3-2 and 3-1 wins against the Vancouver Canucks. Tampa Bay is coming off a game Thursday in Edmonton, where they fell 5-2 to the Oilers. A number of notes to set this game up.

The Calgary Flames reduced their training camp roster by 14 players on Friday morning, sending all 14 players to the Abbotsford Heat of the American Hockey League. Of the players, Mitch Wahl is probably the most surprising to be assigned, mostly because of how he's impressed as of late.

As the Calgary Flames get set for the Vancouver Canucks in a split squad affair tonight, here's what we can tell you. I think everybody gets the concept now, one game in Calgary (7 pm, FAN 960 and Sportsnet Flames) and one game in Vancouver (8 pm). But we can also give you a little more as to what you'll see, specifically at the Dome this evening.
