GOAL

Curtis McElhinney: Looked calm early on and made some stellar stops to keep the game close. B+

Defence

Dion Phaneuf: Inconsistent game. Physical on occasion but got burned defensively a couple of times. C+

Cory Sarich: One of the more stable blueliners in the game. C+

Anders Eriksson: Had a tough time playing the puck in his own end. C-

Robyn Regehr: Aggressive to a fault in second period. C+

Adrian Aucoin: Paced the Flames with three shots over the first two periods. C

Rhett Warrener: Couldn't stop the setup pass on Clowe's opening goal. C+

Forwards

Stephane Yelle: It's amazing how this guy will lay in front of a puck even in the pre-season. B

Jarome Iginla: Seemed inspired at times in the second period but couldn't capitalize on any scoring chances. C+

Mark Smith: Showed no real spark when he should have been trying to make a strong impression. C

Eric Godard: His eighth exhibition game went about as well as his first seven. C-

Wayne Primeau: Played most of his minutes killing penalties with Stephane Yelle. C

Kristian Huselius: Maybe his worst showing of the pre-season. C-

Craig Conroy: Strong night in the faceoff circle. B

David Moss: Still waiting for him to find his game this fall. C-

Marcus Nilson: Had one good shift and disappeared until the third period. C

Alex Tanguay: Showed some determination. B

Dustin Boyd: Very little ice time. Probably headed back to the AHL. C

Warren Peters: Didn't see a lot of ice in the pre-season finale. Future with the Flames is up in the air. C
