Updated: Flames Annihilated – Detroit 8 : Calgary 2

The Flames should’ve stayed on the plane. Starting a long road trip, Calgary put up their worst effort of the year one game after putting up their best. The post game summary will be on the Twitter feed @flamesstamps The question will be what the league will do after the mini-brawl that saw the referees hand Detroit, somehow, a 5 minute PP. It was a disgusting display, yet what the NHL head office does is anybody’s guess, they have different…

Solid Win: Calgary 7 – St Louis 4

Solid Win: Calgary 7 – St Louis 4

The Calgary Flames faced the St Louis Blues, the best team in Western Conference, for the final game of a 7 homestand. One of the critiques on the up Flames game was the lack of secondary scoring. There were hints they were breaking out last game versus Detroit, but tonight solidified the damn may have broken. Every single Flames forward how to point except for boring Sean Monahan. The team tallied seven goals, Let’s not by the first line tonight,…

Secondary Scoring: Calgary 6 – Detroit 3

Secondary Scoring: Calgary 6 – Detroit 3

There is it. What we’ve all been waiting for. Secondary scoring. There hasn’t been a 5v5 goal ALL YEAR from the bottom six forwards, but tonight a few decided to show up. Here’s the brief post-game summary. News before the game was Rasmus Andersson getting into his first game this season. He didn’t look that bad and worked well with Brett Kulak, who continues to improve his game. If this means no more Bartkowski, everyone wins. The 4th line was…

Flames Steal Win: Calgary 2 – Pittsburgh 1 (OT)

Flames Steal Win: Calgary 2 – Pittsburgh 1 (OT)

Only one thing is working for the Flames and that’s the goalie. Making 43 saves, 21 of them in the first period alone, this team is completely lost. Half of the forwards are lost. The D are hemmed in their own end and are lost. The goalie, well for a change he’s not lost, he’s stealing wins. The Flames should’ve been blown out tonight folks. The usual lacklustre squad showed up to play, their first game in 4 days. The…

Discipline: Calgary 2 – St Louis 5

Discipline: Calgary 2 – St Louis 5

The Flames have not found an identity that even glimpses this team improved over the past two seasons. Sad really. Tonight, they lost, yet again, for the same reasons. Let’s review the three. Hamonic with his worst game yet. Overpayment on this D man it seems as this juncture. He’s inconsistent in his own end when he’s supposed to be an upgrade to Wideman. Horrid giveaway for the first ST Louis goal. He was doing the same thing last night….

Back on Track? Flames 3 – Predators 2 (SO)

Back on Track? Flames 3 – Predators 2 (SO)

Well, that was ? to our ears! pic.twitter.com/Imv9fu6PKl — Calgary Flames (@NHLFlames) October 25, 2017 The Flames haven’t been playing consistent hockey all season. 60 minutes of their style? Nope. The lineup fans demand? Nope. Lack of offence? Yep. Terrible penalties? Yep. Tonight, the stage was set for something…..because the lineup (less Jagr) that’s arguably the best, was out there. That included Mark Jakowski, fresh on a callup. His presence is important, because with another capable centerman, Sam Bennett, who’s…

Top to Bottom: Calgary Flames Art Lost

Top to Bottom: Calgary Flames Art Lost

Far from elite, the Calgary Flames organization as a whole is in some stormy seas. After another pathetic effort at home, shut out for the third time in a young season, the bored fans have to wonder what on earth is going on. Well here’s what we know. From an organizational point of view things are toxic. After trying desperately to score a new arena, then meddling in a local civic election, then comparing the mayor to Trump, the Calgary…

To Flames Powerplay Units of All Time if Glen Gulutzan was Picking Them

To Flames Powerplay Units of All Time if Glen Gulutzan was Picking Them

The Flames seem to enjoy killing penalties these days. That makes it even more important for the rare times when they get a PP, to cash in on the man advantage. But it’s been frustrating at times watching the PP unfold with the likes of Brouwer taking first team reps. We thought we’d throw together a quick, ‘Great Flames’ Powerplay Units of All Time’ as if Glen Gulutzan himself was picking them.

Flames Beat LA in OT for 4 Points in California

Flames Beat LA in OT for 4 Points in California

Calgary 4 – LA 3 A post shared by Calgary Flames (@nhlflames) on Oct 11, 2017 at 10:24pm PDT Although the line hasn’t changed significantly, it has changed enough. Imagine what steady solid goaltending can do for your club. Although it’s early in the season, players like Ferland, Brouwer, and Stajan need to find an extra gear, the Flames lineup is starting to roll out some wins in tough to win places. After Monday’s win in Anaheim, tonight they played…
