The Calgary Flames got back on the winning side of their preseason schedule, using a 13 save performance from Henrik Karlsson to get by the New York Islanders 2-0 at the Scotiabank Saddledome. It's the second to last exhibition contest for the Flames, who easily controlled an overmatched Islanders squad who had next to no desire to be in Calgary. It wasn't a spectacular Flames performance, but they certainly didn't let the opposition do anything at all.

The Calgary Flames play their second to last preseason game tonight when they welcome the New York Islanders to the Scotiabank Saddledome (7 pm, TSN and Sportsnet Radio FAN 960). Calgary got some positive injury news yesterday, and as they move towards a healthier lineup, it looks to be pretty close to an NHL lineup tonight.

Flames GM Jay Feaster joined us on Sportsnet Radio FAN 960 Monday afternoon and gave us some good tidbits of information following Calgary's 14 training camp cuts earlier in the day. More than anything, the news items surrounded injuries with the team, as there were good news bits involving Jarome Iginla and Cory Sarich.

Every Monday we'll be producing a statistical summary of the Flames, starting with an OZQoC chart to describe each player's role and put their stats into context, followed by their even-strength data, and finally the piece being described today - their performance on the special teams.

Unlike the first round of cuts, this one features some of the guys many in Flamesland expected to press for a spot on the big club. It looks like the organization is getting serious about the last few pre-season games and making room for the rest of vets to come in and get some reps in before the real stuff begins.
