I attended the pre-season game on Sunday, October 2 versus the Winnipeg Jets with a friend. It was only his second hockey game he’s ever attended.
The Flames had at least three shots the the post and they led in total shots. However the Jets scored 3 times on Calgarian-native Chad Johnson before he was pulled in favour of John Gilles. Gilles soon after let in the fourth goal. Final score: Jets 4 Flames 0.
Sean Monahan did not dress for the game as he was still coming off an injury and Johnny Gaudreau had still not signed with the team.
The regular season starts October 12 against the Oilers.
