Roman Cervenka has been showing some chemistry on a line with Jiri Hudler and Matthew Stajan.

Cervenka and Hudler seem like a natural fit for now because Cervenka is still working on his English and both were born in the former Czechoslovakia. For now Hudler has been serving as Cervenka's unofficial translator. "Right now, it's still very very early," Flames coach Bob Hartley said. "We've only played one game. Roman and Jiri, number one, they can communicate very well. I'm sure they spend most of their time away from the rink together. So, it's an easy chemistry right now. But, hey, we'll see how it goes. The first game was pretty impressive, so there's no reason to change."
