Jankowski hopes to soak in Flames debut

The Flames prospect has waited a long time to skate in an NHL game

by Aaron Vickers @AAVickers / CalgaryFlames.com

CALGARY, AB -- Mark Jankowski has been around long enough to know.

"Absolutely," said Jankowski, who will visit Rogers Place in the road side of a split-squad contest against the Edmonton Oilers on Monday (7 p.m. MT, CalgaryFlames.com).

"Hate the Oilers.

"It's going to be good. It's going to be a hard, intense game. It's the Battle of Alberta. You always want to beat Edmonton. Hate losing to them.

"It's going to be a really good game."

Pollock ready to suit up as rival in hometown

Brett Pollock has mixed feelings about skating at Rogers Place as a member of the Flames

by George Johnson @GeorgejohnsonCH / CalgaryFlames.com

CALGARY, AB -- Any lingering Edmonton-area hockey residue has obviously been scraped off with the opening of training camp.

Squinting at the image on an iPhone 5 on Monday morning, Brett Pollock was asked for his initial impression of the Oilers' freshly-unveiled mascot, Hunter.

"I don't even know what to say about that," he deadpanned. "What's it supposed to be? A lynx? Okay …

"It's a little creepy. Like a Halloween costume gone bad or something."

Flames vets seeking strong start to pre-season

by Aaron Vickers @AAVickers / CalgaryFlames.com

CALGARY, AB -- There's no dipping a toe into the water to test out the temperature.

Dive in head first, suggested Calgary Flames captain Mark Giordano.  

"I don't think you can ease into it," said Giordano, who will take to Scotiabank Saddledome ice in the home side of a split-squad contest against the Edmonton Oilers on Monday (7:00 PM MT, CalgaryFlames.com).

"That's when injuries and things like that happen. You have to go out and play like it's a regular season game … with that mindset and intensity. I just think that's when you get into trouble if you think you're going to ease into these games. There are guys battling around the league looking for jobs and fighting for position.

"You've got to be ready."

by George Johnson @GeorgejohnsonCH / CalgaryFlames.com

CALGARY, AB -- Like everyone else with an area code on planet earth, Martin Gelinas has watched the Survivor reality TV series.

"I like Bob," the immensely popular OT goal-scoring hero of the wildly improbable 2004 run is saying of the deposed Bob Hartley. "We're friends. In this game, there are a lot of good people.

"Bob is one of those good people.

"I really enjoyed working with him. I learned a lot.

"I talked to him only three days ago. He's back home, at the cabin, just staying put.
