PRACTICE REPORT 10-7

The Flames took the ice at the Civic Center Tuesday morning for their second official team practice of the season.

The Flames continued with their quick rhythm and tempo today with a practice that focused on special teams in a big way.

Practice began with some neutral zone passing drills and transitioned into line rushes and zone breakout drills. The first portion of practice concluded with two-on-two rushes up ice, continuing the team’s work on the backcheck.

The Flames then transitioned into their work on special teams.

Coach Huska had the team work on entering the zone and cycling, as well as winning draws and setting up properly while on the power play. The idea, Huska said, was to get players comfortable with keeping the system simple as the Flames head into the regular season.

The Flames then spent the latter portion of practice with some five-on-five work including rushes down the ice, faceoffs and battles along the boards in the offensive zone.

Today’s practice was extremely high energy, and concluded with a brief small-ice scrimmage and a full team stretch at center ice.

The Flames will hit the Civic Center ice for practice again tomorrow at 10 a.m.

The 2014 regular season gets going this Friday, October 10th in Rochester, as the Flames travel to take on the Americans. Puck drop is set for 7:00 p.m. The Flames return to the Civic Center for the home opener the following night as they host the Albany Devils in a 7:00 p.m. contest.
