The pre-season is about getting looks at the players wanting to crack your roster.

The Flames coaching staff will have that opportunity Sunday night in Winnipeg when they face the Jets in their fifth pre-season tilt.

The players that will suit up in Winnipeg tonight are:

Tobias Rieder (LW)

Devante Smith-Pelly (RW)

Austin Czarnik (RW)

The Flames split their split-squad tilts with the Canucks to start pre-season on Sept. 16 (3-2 loss at the Scotiabank Saddledome and 4-3 win in Victoria), before beating the visiting San Jose Sharks in a high-scoring 6-4 affair on Sept. 18.

Most recently, the Flames skated out to a 2-1 lead after the first period in Edmonton Friday night against the Oilers, but the homeside scored five straight to win 6-2.

Sam Bennett, who won't play tonight, had the first goal for Calgary while Lomberg also tallied.

 

TRIMMING DOWN:

The Flames assigned four players to Stockton on Saturday: Alex Gallant (LW), Jeremy McKenna (RW), Mason Morelli (LW), and Nick Schneider (G).

The team now has 49 players remaining at training camp (5x goalies, 16x defensemen, 28x forwards).

The Flames will return home and host the Jets at the 'Dome Tuesday at 7 p.m. Click here for tickets.
