CALGARY — It’s a pairing Flames fans plan on getting used to. Andrew Mangiapane and Nazem Kadri. Two feisty, corner-dwellers with finish — a duo that could potentially lead the league in sparking post-whistle scrums. After nursing a lower body “tweak” by skating on his own the first four days of camp, Mangiapane finally joined his teammates Monday when he was promptly positioned alongside the team’s prized free agent signing of the summer. Funny, as what could be the start of something fantastically frustrating for the rest of the league could theoretically have started months earlier, when the two happened to be participating in the same summertime, 3-on

Flames Takeaways: Huberdeau already making presence felt in pre-season opener

CALGARY — Centre stage belonged to Jonathan Huberdeau for Sunday’s pre-season opener. He didn’t disappoint. Greeted with a warm welcome by a sparse Saddledome crowd that likely reminded the longtime Panthers star of his days in Florida, he responded with a power-play goal that put smiles on the faces of everyone in the building, including his. “I got a little lucky on that goal,” he said of the backhand he put into an empty net from close-in after an attempted cross-crease pass from the right side of the net deflected back to him atop the paint. “It’s always fun to find the back of the net, even in pre-season.”

CALGARY — Jonathan Huberdeau scored in his Flames debut as Calgary scored three times in the second period in a 4-0 NHL pre-season victory over the Vancouver Canucks split-squad. Cody Eakin, Blake Coleman and journeyman forward Brett Sutter, Darryl Sutter’s son, also scored for Calgary. The Flames iced a far more experienced lineup than Vancouver, who kept all of its top players back home for the other half of two split-squad games. The Flames also prevailed in Vancouver, winning 3-2 in overtime. Huberdeau was the centrepiece addition in a busy off-season for general manager Brad Treliving, who acquired the 29-year-old from Florida in a blockbuster trade that also included defenceman MacKenzie Weegar. Matthew Tkachuk went to the Panthers. The trade came nine days after star left-winger Johnny Gaudreau left
