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.

A number of notes from Calgary Flames training camp on Thursday, as the team gets set for their sixth preseason game on Friday night in Edmonton. Calgary has reassigned forward Greg Nemisz to Abbotsford of the American Hockey League, while reports suggest defenceman Staffan Kronwall has been placed on waivers.

A fairly veteran squad has landed in Saskatoon for the Calgary Flames who will take on the New York Islanders in exhibition action tonight (7 pm, Rogers Sportsnet Flames and The FAN 960). 22 players made the trip, and with no morning skate today, we won't know till pregame warmup what we're looking at in terms of lines, lineup etc.
