According to the National Hockey League website, the National Hockey League released its 2014-15 regular season schedule on Sunday. The Calgary Flames will open their season on Wednesday, October 8 against the Vancouver Canucks at the Scotiabank Saddledome.
It will be one of four games on the NHL opening night schedule. The other games will be the Montreal Canadiens at the Toronto Maple Leafs, the Philadelphia Flyers at the Boston Bruins and the San Jose Sharks at the Los Angeles Kings.
According to the Calgary Flames website, the Flames will play all teams within the Pacific Division five times with the exception of the Vancouver Canucks, who they will play four times. The Flames will also once again host a game on New Year's Eve and Valentine's Day. On New Year's Eve, they will host their Alberta provincial rival, the Edmonton Oilers and on Valentine's Day, they will host the Canucks.
