Flames ready to burn

- October 8th, 2011

Hours before game time and the Calgary Flames are excited to hit the ice for the first time in more than a week when the puck drops on their season opener against the Penguins Saturday night at the Saddledome.
“More anxious than anything to get the game going,” said defenceman Mark Giordano.
“There’s going to be a lot of intensity, a lot of emotion in the game. The main thing is to try to keep that in check and play the right way.”

The Flames will ice a lineup that looks like this …

Tanguay-Moss-Iginla
Hagman-Horak-Bourque
Glencross-Jokinen-Stempniak
Kostopoulos-Stajan-Jackman

Bouwmeester/Butler
Giordano/Hannan
Babchuk/Sarich

Kiprusoff gets the start in net of course.
