It’s Thanksgiving weekend in Canada, and we’ll all be giving thanks for a long weekend and the end of the Calgary Flames‘ pre-season schedule! The Flames play their eighth (and final) exhibition tilt of the fall on Friday evening when they visit the Vancouver Canucks. Last time they met, the Flames put 10 goals on the board and you must imagine the Canucks will be looking for some revenge.
The puck drops at 8 p.m. MT and it’s available on Sportsnet TV or you can listen live on Sportsnet 960 The Fan!

The Flames

Via the club, here are morning skate lines:
Huberdeau – Lindholm – Mangiapane
Sharangovich – Backlund – Coronato
Ruzicka – Kadri – Dube
Hunt – Schwindt – Duehr
Weegar – Andersson
Hanifin – Tanev
Zadorov – Oesterle
Sounds like Jacob Markstrom starts, Dan Vladar backs up, and the extras are Adam Klapka, Blake Coleman, Ilya Solovyov and Dennis Gilbert.
The Flames are down to 24 players on their roster after Thursday’s cuts and waiver action. They likely have one or two more decisions to make before opening night.
