CALGARY - Chris Butler’s plan was to come to Calgary on Sunday.

What timing by the Calgary Flames defenceman.

“I had this flight book for a little while,” Butler said from the airport in St. Louis. “I booked it maybe a week ago and, oddly enough, the lockout ends today. Perfect timing.

“Maybe I should have booked it four months ago.”

The mad scramble back to NHL cities has begun.
