LINEUP NOTES - 03.01.20

A quick rundown on Friday's practice at the Scotiabank Saddledome

by TORIE PETERSON @ToriePeterson /

CALGARY - A day after their 4-3 win over the New York Rangers, the Flames were back on the ice for an up-tempo practice at the Scotiabank Saddledome.

There were some slight changes to the forward lines with the departure of Michael Frolik, who was traded to the Buffalo Sabres on Thursday evening in exchange for a fourth-round pick in the 2020 NHL Draft. Mark Jankowski moved to center a line with Sam Bennett and Tobias Rieder and Zac Rinaldo skated as an extra.

The team also brought back an old practice on Friday afternoon.

In late November, Geoff Ward and the coaching staff started opening non-game day skates with four songs playing. The practice tappered off mid-way through December but the Flames brought back their four-track playlist, opening their skate with the following songs:

Who Made Who - AC/DC

Memories - David Guetta ft. Kid Cudi

Red Lights - Tiesto

Rose Tattoo - Dropkick Murphy's


The Flames leave for a two-game road trip tomorrow. They will take on the Minnesota Wild on Sunday at 5:00 p.m. MT and will close out the trek with a stop in Chicago on Tuesday, facing off against the Blackhawks at 6:30 p.m. MT.

The team is back in Calgary next week, hosting the Wild on Thursday, Jan. 9 at 7:00 p.m. MT. Limited tickets are available HERE.
