Upbeat, enthusiastic, intense: Flames share first impressions of new coach

The new boss doesn’t just demand sweat. He drips it. For many of the Calgary Flames’ go-to guys, their exhibition odyssey to Shenzhen and Beijing for the 2018 O.R.G.

It's coming. pic.twitter.com/TVGWY7ao32— Calgary Flames (@NHLFlames) September 19, 2018 Now, the tweet doesn’t reveal much, so it leaves a lot to the imagination. Red? Black? Yellow? Grey?
