There's a reason there are more no-hitters pitched in September

Here's all you really need to know about tonight's Coyotes-Flames preseason game in Calgary:
Head Coach Wayne Gretzky joked with reporters after Thursday’s morning skate that the team on this two-game trip is so young that the Coyotes had to spend hours gathering parental consent forms before the team could leave the U.S. Tonight’s lineup is extremely young and inexperienced. Of the 22 players on tonight's roster, 10 have never played in an NHL regular-season game.

Jeff Hoggan-Kevin Porter-Viktor Tikhonov
Alex Bourret-Mike Zigomanis-Steven Goertzen
Daniel Carcillo-Garth Murray-Enver Lisin
Chad Kolarik-Dave Spina-Brian McGrattan

Jonas Ahnelov-Michael Stone
Kurt Sauer-David Hale
Logan Stephenson-Drew Fata

G Mikael Tellqvist expected to play the full game

The Flames are giving quite a few young guys a crack too, but are at least dressing two NHL forward lines and two NHL defense pairings. Good for Backlund or Bertuzzi if they go off, but let's not get too excited.
