Anisotropic flow in relativistic collisions of heavy-ions yields important information about the state of the hot and dense matter created in the collision. Study of triangular flow in Pb+Pb collisions at LHC was performed using HYDJET++ Monte Carlo generator. HYDJET++ combines both hydrodynamics-driven soft part together with hard jet-part, giving a realistic prediction for vast number of hadron species. The model also enables study of influence of final-state interactions on flow of created hadrons. Triangular flow patterns of pions, kaons and protons were studied. We found that resonance decays influence significantly the shape of the distributions.
