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…

Flames New Arena Talks Shrouded in Secrecy

Some interesting tidbits emerging as the talks for a new Flames arena continues behind closed doors led by new Councillors. The curious part, FOIP requests for details on the “deals” being made behind closed doors are being rejected. Anyways, have a read, and remember that billionaires getting tax dollars to fund more billions isn’t in public interest. Even though we all love the Flames. https://www.reddit.com/r/Calgary/comments/assc3i/so_i_submitted_an_foi_request_to_the_city/ http://www.fieldofschemes.com/2019/02/21/14654/calgary-has-a-flames-arena-plan-but-it-cant-tell-you-what-it-is-or-itll-have-to-kill-you/

3 Straight and a Dominant Win

3 Straight and a Dominant Win

And just like that the Calgary Flames have strung together three consecutive victories. After an up and down play following the All-Star break, Calgary returned home and put in a dominant game versus the Islanders. After facing stiff competition in Pittsburgh last week the Flames pulled out a solid victory. Remember, it was the Penguins who beat the Flames bad earlier in the year that really kick-started the season turnaround. This team will face adversity, and if what we saw…

Panic Mode? Flames Lose 3 Straight & Look Weak

Is it time to hit the panic button ? The Calgary Flames, with their loss last night against the league-leading Tampa Bay Lightning, are now in a three-game losing streak which they’ve only experienced three times this season. The cause for concern? Their play as of late. The past month has seen a decline in their overall game. Management is no doubt looking closely at this team, and how they’re faltering in adversity.

Back to Winning Ways – Flames Sweep Hurricanes

Back to Winning Ways – Flames Sweep Hurricanes

Calgary are back to their winning ways after the All-Star game with a win vs. Carolina. The team struggled to up their intensity versus Washington in a loss. Tonight there were many times they were hemmed in their own zone, with all 4 lines getting out worked down low. This team has found a knack at winning games when they’re being outplayed and outshot. That’s a big difference from year’s prior. But it doesn’t bode well for their future if…

Still Surprised – Flames 2nd in League at All-Star Break

Still Surprised – Flames 2nd in League at All-Star Break

I’m surprised. I shouldn’t be, but I am. I’m used to decades of inconsistent Flames. And suddenly this team is good. I can’t even recall a time they were this good. I was too young. That shows you how long ago it was since the Calgary Flames were a legitimate threat to do some damage in the playoffs. So is it time to relax and enjoy the ride? Enjoy, sure, but something in the back of my head doesn’t want…

Tops in the West – Flames Beat Philly

Tops in the West – Flames Beat Philly

The Calgary Flames continued their Eastern road trip swing by getting back on winning track versus Philly. The Flames seem to have trouble beating up on non-playoff teams, Philly being no exception. Twice now they’ve had to come from behind in the third and pull out a late overtime victory to pull in the two points. Two points that have temporarily placed the Flames at the top of the Western Conference. They have amassed points up to the halfway point…

Gaudreau and Big Wiener Rittich Show

Gaudreau and Big Wiener Rittich Show

A West Division classic between two of the leading teams took place in Winnipeg. Both teams were shrugging off their Christmas hangover, the Flames looking to get back to winning ways after losing 3 straight. This team seems to have the capability to get up for big games against big opponents, and slow down against the likes of St Louis. They have Vancouver on Saturday, and can’t take a shift off. An improved team performance will be necessary as Calgary…
