Florida Panthers

Calgary Flames

Game Time: 7:00PM MST
Location: Pengrowth Saddledome (Calgary, AB)
Coverage: flames.nhl.com

Recent News:
The Panthers have started their preseason with two wins and two losses; topping Ottawa twice, while falling to Montreal and Edmonton. Meanwhile, Calgary has opened their preseason with one win and two losses. Most recently, the Flames fell 4-2 to the New York Islanders, while the Panthers were shut out 4-0 by the Edmonton Oilers.

Key Players:
Florida Panthers: Watch for the impact of two NHL veterans on the Panthers blueline. Both Martin Skoula and Christian Backman were invited to Cats camp on a tryout basis. The two veterans will be fighting for a roster spot with an already large contingent of establish NHL blueliners, including the likes of Jordan Leopold, Bryan McCabe, and Keith Ballard.

Calgary Flames: Nigel Dawes has taken his preseason opportunity to shine. Providing a strong two-way game, Dawes is making a strong case for himself so far this preseason. Once again watch for Theo Fleury. In his only preseason action to date, he scored the shootout winning goal against the Isles on Thursday night. The spark plug didn’t dazzle, but seemed to improve as the game wore on. Another name to watch will be Jay Bouwmeester. Should he draw into the lineup, this will be his first game against the team that originally drafted him.
