The toughest stretch may come late in the season when Flames head on the road for seven of eight contests. From March 20 to April 2, Calgary will face the Montreal Canadiens, Toronto Maple Leafs, Minnesota Wild, Arizona Coyotes, Anaheim Ducks, Edmonton Oilers and Los Angeles Kings while only returning home for one game, and that will be against the defending Stanley Cup champion Chicago Blackhawks.

The Flames will play five games against each division opponent except for the Kings who they will face four times. They have at least two games against each team in the league, so you will get a chance to see every visiting player come through Calgary at least once next year.

Here is a quick look at the Flames entire 2015-16 schedule.
