The Calgary Flames crept into the Mile High City on Sunday night, visiting a desperate, winless Colorado Avalanche squad. After a hard-fought 60 minute effort featuring some superb netminding, the Flames flew home having steadied their pre-season record at the .500 mark (3-3-0), while the Avalanche dropped to 0-4-1 following a 2-1 win for the visitors.

The Calgary Flames have cut down their roster significantly and now, it's back to action. And what better way to kick off the back half of their pre-season schedule than with Jarome Iginla's first game with the Avalanche against the team he represented for the better part of a decade and a half? In the pre-season, with no TV and fanfare.
The Flames (2-3-0) now boast a sub-.500 record in the pre-season, but they have gotten some nice performances. The Avalanche (0-3-1) haven't won a pre-season game yet, and seem to be icing a roster that pushes hard for one.
Game time is 6pm. No TV, but your pals at Sportsnet 960 The Fan have the call, as always.

We're just over half-way through training camp! The Flames have 57 bodies in camp as of this writing and have to get down to 23 bodies by the October 7 at 3pm MT.
With 10 days and 4 pre-season games to go, along with a bunch of injuries, how are things looking right now? Here's a quick look as we wait for cuts, in order of how likely a player is to make the team right now.

When tonight's rosters came out over the Twitter Machine, two common thoughts pervaded the Calgary hockey world.
- "Hey, that Canucks roster looks pretty close to an NHL roster."
- "Hey, isn't that basically the Adirondack Flames roster dressing for our side?"
Well, on Friday night in Vancouver...that's exactly what happened. The Flames lost 3-0. They barely dressed any regulars. No Monahan. No Gaudreau. No Giordano. No Brodie. Karri Ramo just played a period as he comes back from a hip injury.
In short: they are what we thought they were - a largely AHL roster going into Vancouver and losing fairly soundly to the Vancouver Canucks' NHL roster.
