Updated: Flames Annihilated – Detroit 8 : Calgary 2

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….

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…

Curse Lifted: Calgary 2 – Anaheim 0

Curse Lifted: Calgary 2 – Anaheim 0

Let this be a lesson, nobody gets away with beating the Calgary Flames 30 times straight at home. The Calgary Flames registered their first win in Anaheim since 2004. Or to put it another way, Mike Smith has never lost at the Honda Centre as a Calgary Flames. For this part, Smith registered his first shut out as a Flames as well. Things are certainly looking solid in goal. But how about the rest of the squad?

Flames Win Season Opener: Calgary 6 – Winnipeg 3

Flames Win Season Opener: Calgary 6 – Winnipeg 3

What a game! A post shared by Calgary Flames (@nhlflames) on Oct 7, 2017 at 9:52pm PDT For 4.5 period of the new NHL season the Calgary Flames were MIA. Well, the Calgary Flames minus Mike Smith. Badly outplayed in Edmonton in the season opener, the home opener looked about the same against the visiting Winnipeg Jets. Apart from stellar saves from Smith, the Flames were lacklustre, non-existent even. Couldn’t establish a forecheck, were half asleep, and ultimately went down…

Flames Blow Home Opener: Calgary 0 – Edmonton 3

Flames Blow Home Opener: Calgary 0 – Edmonton 3

The Calgary Flames struggle on opening night, especially against their provincial rivals. The lead up to the the season opener say the Flames play a handful of lacklustre outings in pre-season. When the puck dropped last night on the new 2017-2018 season, the team was thoroughly dominated by the Oilers. This is the Oilers team that’s about Arizona Coyotes good without the #2 best player in the NHL, who we have to keep reiterating due to jealousy, was won in…
