The Calgary Flames have been working hard to prepare for their next game. Which happens to be another Battle of Alberta with the Edmonton Oilers. Saturday night. Hockey Night in Canada. Meanwhile, lots of NHL trade talk and of course the big debut of the little arena in Arizona.

That, more Montreal Canadiens, NHL news, and NHL trade rumours in the latest CHN Flames Daily:

Calgary Flames

All eyes will be on the goaltending situation. It’s going to be the talk of the town until it isn’t when it comes to Jacob Markstrom.

The Flames are proving last year wasn’t a fluke and they’re doing it without playing their best yet.

Tyler Toffoli is scoring despite the top line’s five-on-five struggles. Rasmus Andersson is working to join the elite at his position. Nazem Kadri has quickly become a fan favourite and his goals are leading to wins. And Jonathan Huberdeau found the net for the first time as a Flame.

NHL Trade Talk, News, National Hockey Now

Sportsnet: Mullet Arena is only 5,000 seats. It’s been a bit of a joke around the league for a while. However, for at least one night, the Arizona Coyotes played in front of a wild audience, and it looked kind of fun.

Montreal Hockey Now: The Canadiens have too many NHL forwards. GM Kent Hughes has been nosing around the NHL trade market. Marc Dumont looks at a few “creative” options for a Canadiens trade.

Washington: Is Alex Ovechkin OK, trade talk, and Peter Laviolette’s future? Sammi Silber doesn’t hold back in a Washington Capitals mailbag.

Colorado: New Jersey beat Colorado. Yes, the Metro Division Devils handed it to the Colorado Avalanche.

Boston: The Bruins defeated the Columbus Blue Jackets Friday to continue the best start in franchise history. Hey, the Calgary Flames of the east. Boston Bruins. 

Dallas: Forward Matej Blumel earned his way back to the NHL after his demotion. Dallas Stars

Pittsburgh: Things are getting bad for the Pittsburgh Penguins as they were blown out by the lowly Vancouver Canucks Friday night.

Philadelphia: Philadelphia Flyers goalie Carter Hart has become the backbone of his team.

Vegas: The Golden Knights handed the Anaheim Ducks their seventh consecutive loss. The Calgary Flames division title will be contested this year. Vegas Golden Knights.
