The pre-season wrapped up for the Flames last week, and while other games are still on the go in the NHL heading into the start of the season Thursday, the Flames took it upon themselves to do some off ice team building in Banff.

Forward Alex Tanguay understands the value of some time with the boys.

As Tanguay said, it's back to business Tuesday, as they get ready for the Pittsburgh Penguins on Saturday night. Sidney Crosby is rumoured to join the team on the western Canadian road trip, but won't play, as he was placed on Injured Reserve by the Penguins yesterday.
