Flames Toast. Playing Worst Hockey of Season: Game 3 Bust

Flames Toast. Playing Worst Hockey of Season: Game 3 Bust

Avalanche 6 – Flames 2 The Flames were embarrassed at home in Game 2. Poor effort and the Stars thoroughly outplayed. Well in Game 3 they completely folded. Yes, the referees handed Colorado a 2-0 lead. After that the wheels fell off. Little response from the top players. It’s literally so bad the Flames haven’t played this poorly since the loss at home early in the season against Pittsburgh. It’s bad hockey at the worst time. Not much to say…

Flames Drop Lazy Game 2. Series Tied

Flames Drop Lazy Game 2. Series Tied

The Flames were firing on all cylinders on Thursday, and did the complete opposite on Saturday. Game 2 at home, and faced with an Avalanche top line that was essentially double shifted the entire game, couldn’t get things moving for the life of them. Special teams dead. Top line absent. TJ Brodie demoted. Short handed goal against. The performers were Mike Smith, which is great to see. Sam Bennett with a solid performance and two points. And the 4th line,…

Game 1: Calgary 4 – Colorado 0: Flames Lead Best of Seven

Game 1: Calgary 4 – Colorado 0: Flames Lead Best of Seven

YOU WANNA WIN PLAYOFF GAMES? Here are four EASY STEPS to make that happen, a recipe for any team tried and tested over the years. 4) 4th line production. Mangiapane with the GWG. Hathaway almost had one off the cross bar minutes later. 4th line will sway a series. 3) Best players your best. Top line is still MIA. But Johnny is active, only Monahan is asleep. He insists he’s not injured. We think otherwise. Tkachuck with a two goal…

It’s not bad, it’s just not great. Flames Near Playoffs

It’s not bad, it’s just not great. Flames Near Playoffs

Flames dropped last night’s game to the LA Kings 0-3. I mean, LA isn’t good, they’re second last in the league, but they have been winning as of late. Plus, Calgary has a bit of a cushion a top of the Western Conference with SJ on a 5 game losing skid. But still…..There are some issues that need to be addressed, namely the top line. All year the likes of Monahan, Gaudreau, and Lindholm, have been lights out. But since…

Everyone Gets a Goal! Flames Blow Out Devils

Everyone Gets a Goal! Flames Blow Out Devils

The Flames are entering the stretch run before April’s opening of this year’s playoff series. Calgary will be there, but in what place remains to be seen. Since the All-Star break the team has struggled to find a rhythm of consistency. Particularly concerning was the drop-off in production from the top-line. Up until last night, the top line of Lindholm-Monahan-Gaudreau were struggling to control games like they had earlier in the season. It raised questions whether they could produce in…
