FGD 1: High hopes (7pm MT, SN West)

After months and months of waiting, and a couple prolonged contract negotiations, the Calgary Flames are ready to begin their 2019-20 season. Fittingly, they’ll begin their season by revisiting one of their most bitter defeats – with a trip to Denver to face the Colorado Avalanche.

The puck drops at 7 p.m. MT on Sportsnet West and Sportsnet 960 The Fan!
