4 of 6 wins on the road

4 of 6 wins on the road

The Flames are a road team and continued to show their wares across the league visiting the Eastern seaboard in the most recent trip. Although Calgary won 4 of 6, what was even better was how they kept up with the league’s best. There were mental break downs in their losses, but for the most part the team skated with the likes of Nashville and Boston. last night’s game was a solid way to cap off their road-trip with a…

Flames Continue Winning Road Ways

Flames Continue Winning Road Ways

Calgary 3 – NYI 2 Well it’s be a while since the Flames pulled out a last minute victory hasn’t it? Calgary continued their road pace with their 16th win as they travel along the US Eastern sea board. Tonight was a homecoming of sorts for Travis Hamonic, who returned to NY to face his old team for the first time since being traded. He played a solid game (his partner less so) and contributed to the eventual game winner….

Solid 58 minute game nets loss

Solid 58 minute game nets loss

Calgary is the only team that can play against the Division’s best team, lead with 1.5 minutes left in the game, and lose 4-2. Nobody else has the capacity to have a massive collapse like the Flames. Sitting out of a playoff spot, a win would vault them to second in the division and 8 points back of the Vega Golden Knights. Tonight’s loss puts them in 10th. What separates elite teams from the rest is quite simply mental toughness….

Calgary Flames and Frogurt

Calgary Flames and Frogurt

Calgary came off their break and went back to their inconsistent ways. They head into the All-Star break now, but will face the Oilers tonight. Which team will show up? Who knows. I need to share this though, an awesome graphic by Reddit user Gaskal.

Flames Back to Old Ways: Calgary 1 – Buffalo 2 (OT)

Flames Back to Old Ways: Calgary 1 – Buffalo 2 (OT)

Which Calgary Flames came out of the 5 day mandated break? The December Flames, that’s who. That’s a non-playoff hockey team in case you’re wondering. That team is slow, constantly out battled, has a top line that takes the night off, and can’t generate any sense of identity. It’s a debacle on ice. You mind as well strap skates to Harvey the Hound because it won’t make a difference. The Flames had chance in spurts tonight, but couldn’t bury anything…

Flames 3 – Wild 2 (OT)

Flames 3 – Wild 2 (OT)

Two out of three periods dominant, asleep during the third, and another OT thriller. That about sums up the Flames 4th win in a row, the highest such win-streak of the season. Hat tip to Mike Smith. He’s stellar on the road and shut the door tonight. Flames can brush up their game with some secondary scoring, and consistent effort on the forecheck. But let’s be frank–things are improving–which is what fans want to see as the push to the…

Flames Stand Tall to Defeat Ducks Antics

Flames Stand Tall to Defeat Ducks Antics

Every team that plays the Ducks knows you gotta deal with the dirt. The dirtiest team in the NHL will try to gain their edge playing on the line. It works. It has against the Flames for years, perhaps decades, but you get the the sense the tide is turning.

Big Changes Finally Unrolling for Inconsistent Flames

Big Changes Finally Unrolling for Inconsistent Flames

The Calgary Flames are unbeaten in 2018! Which is to say they’ve won two in a row. Stringing together wins is something this team has been unable to accomplish since the season started. It’s why they’re out of a playoff spot and only have a chance of grabbing a Wild Card spot if they starting playing .600+ hockey. But thus far, the season has been a disappointment. It seems, management is finally running out of patience. The changes are coming…

Flames 2 – St Lou 1

Flames 2 – St Lou 1

Flames beat a good team with a solid game. Everything seemed to be clicking, less the top line. What the Flames need, nay, require, now is consistency. Montreal is coming before Christmas. Then it’s a brief Cali road swing. They need to string wins together if they have a chance at making some noise in the standings.

Flames Take 3 of Possible 4 on Brief East Road Trip

Flames Take 3 of Possible 4 on Brief East Road Trip

Consistent hockey is something that eludes the Calgary Flames. Consistency is what separates good teams from the ones who don’t make the playoffs. The team is currently hovering around the .500 mark, not good enough for all concerned. After lacklustre efforts at home versus Philly and Edmonton, they took to the road to face stiff competition in the Leafs and Canadiens. Here’s how the trip panned out.
