The Vancouver Canucks visited Calgary to face the Flames on Thursday evening. They had no Sedins. They were out-shot and out-played by the locals for the lion's share of the contest. But the Canucks weathered the storm, the Flames were unable to capitalize on their advantages and scoring chances, and the Canucks skated away with a 3-1 loss.

On the other hand, Sam Bennett appears to be quite the hockey player, and that's probably what people are more interested in.

After a pretty entertaining 4-3 win in Sylvan Lake last night, the Calgary Flames are back at it! In the second game of both their 3-games-in-3-nights stretch and their 4-games-in-5-nights stretch (and 5 in 7 if you want to go that far down), they host the visiting Vancouver Canucks.

The puck drops just after 7pm MT and the game is on radio via Sportsnet 960 The Fan and on television via Sportsnet 360. Beware, again, it's the Canucks feed, so no Ball, Hrudey or Millions tonight.

1. Reassurances

Yesterday there was an article about Brian Burke on Sportsnet, about how he really isn't doing much besides reporting to work every day and doing his job. And I hadn't really thought about that, but I guess it's true. Haven't seen much of Burke all summer, and even now you get the feeling that he wouldn't have come out and done any press or interviews unless Sportsnet hadn't specifically called and asked for him.

Which is interesting, really.

The Calgary Flames headed up the road to Sylvan Lake, Alberta on Wednesday night to play the visiting Phoenix Arizona Coyotes. While cynics would joke that the poor folks in Sylvan Lake lost their arena already, why should they be subjected to a Flames/Coyotes game (ha!), tonight's contest actually was pretty damn entertaining.

After some overtime power-play heroics, the Flames skated home with a 4-3 win to improve their pre-season record to 2-1-0.
