SAY WHAT: 'GOOD TIME FOR THE TEAM TO BOND'

What was being said ahead of tonight's tilt in Detroit

by CALGARY FLAMES STAFF @NHLFlames / CalgaryFlames.com

DARRYL SUTTER ON ROAD TRIP:

"Most important for us is to get continuity in our lineup if we can in terms of getting guys Back. We haven't had that since training camp, especially up front. So hopefully as this trip goes on we can see some chemistry developed through our lines."

SWISS ARMY KNIFE

Dube relishing move to the middle; prides himself on bringing versatility to Flames forward corps

by ALEX MEDINA @alex_medina5 / CalgaryFlames.com

Every team needs a Swiss Army Knife.

Reliable, versatile and flexible, they can always be counted upon.

Dillon Dube is focused on being just that for the Flames this season, playing in any role the club asks of him.

On Tuesday, the 23-year-old moved back to the middle with Andrew Mangiapane and Brett Ritchie on the wing, as the club experiments with some different looks up front.

The preseason saw the forward shift to centre for a couple of games for the first time in his NHL career, and he looked more than comfortable in that role.

"It doesn't bother me, wherever they need me or want me to go it's an easy switch and an exciting challenge every time," Dube said. "You focus more on the details of the game, there's a lot more responsibility in your own zone to play a full 200-foot game and bring a lot of energy up the middle.

"It's a back-and-forth position, so I worry about my game overall and not focus on the difference between the two, but just in staying focused and sharp."

CAVENDISH FARMS REPORT - 19.10.21

Rookies shine in Heat's first two games of the season

by BRANDON WEISS @WeissBrandon1 / CalgaryFlames.com

The kids, it turns out, are quite alright.

The goal in the AHL, just a step away from hockey's pinnacle, is somewhat different than the NHL. 

The long-term process is the focus - come into the league, learn to be a pro, develop successful habits, compete and win. A Calder Cup is the reward, but bringing the next wave of talent to Calgary is the overall drive.

TOUGH ONE

by TY PILSON @typilson / CalgaryFlames.com

For the second time in as many games, the Flames peppered the opposition net with more than 40 shots.

Two days after throwing 47 at the Oilers in a 5-2 loss, they racked up 42 in regulation against the visiting Anaheim Ducks in their home-opener Monday night at the Scotiabank Saddledome.

WELCOME BACK!

Tonight's home-opener is going to be a heckuva night - "We're excited to have them and I'm sure they're excited to be back," said Matthew Tkachuk

by RYAN DITTRICK @ryandittrick / CalgaryFlames.com

There's plenty of history in this old barn. 

It's been home to some of the game's greatest players, countless victories, unforgettable moments, milestones, and Cup runs, too. 

But of the 42 home-openers ever to be played under the iconic paraboloid, this one stands alone.
