Flames line up their big guns

NHL.com @NHL
It may be only the second day of the Calgary Flames training camp but fans and media alike
were clamoring to see how Jarome Iginla, Olli Jokinen and Alex Tanguay would perform together on a line.

They didn't have to wait long – and the early results were promising. The line scored several goals together during drills.

"I think it was good. It was good step -- a step in the right direction," Jokinen said of how well his line meshed. "We obviously started building chemistry. It was a good day overall as a team. We had a really good practice and everybody is so positive and upbeat over here."

Iginla was cautiously optimistic about the immediate chemistry the three had, pointing out they only have one on-ice session under their belts so far.

"It felt good, first of all, to be out there and starting another training camp. Coming in and seeing the lines, I'm excited about it," he said with a grin. "I'm playing with Alex and Olli and I think we can be a really good line. It's just the first day but it was a good paced practice."
