Vancouver Barely Wins. Back For Game Six | Series: Calgary 3 – Vancouver 2

Vancouver Barely Wins. Back For Game Six | Series: Calgary 3 – Vancouver 2

With the season on the line, and in front of their hometown, the Canucks threw everything they had at the Flames and barely squeaked by with a victory. Although they controlled most of the play, Calgary still had a chance to tie it up in the third period. (Corsi stat lovers will eat this one up all night long.) It was a elimination night for the Vancouver Canucks. Nobody had the Calgary Flames coming in to game five with a…

Flames Lead Series 3-1 : Flames Win Game 4 : 3-1

Flames Lead Series 3-1 : Flames Win Game 4 : 3-1

Scored tickets last minute to this doozy and BAM! what a game it was! I’ve been to playoff games all through 2004, 2009, and today, and I can say without a doubt, this is not only different, but it was the loudest! Go Flames Go! View from here. pic.twitter.com/ofHVyxWgJS — Ro (@flamesstamps) April 22, 2015 The talk around town before the game was that if the Calgary Flames couldn’t get off to the same start as they did in Game…

Calgary Smashes Vancouver 4-2: Lead Series 2-1

Calgary Smashes Vancouver 4-2: Lead Series 2-1

After six years long years, and only two years into a promising rebuild, the Flames brought playoff hockey back to Calgary. This city has been largely on pause since the playoffs began, today being no exception with fans spilling into the streets around the Dome early for the late Sunday start. After getting worked in Game 2, and after the controversy at the end of the game that resulted in a Bob Hartley $50,000 fine, many wondered what the Flames…

Welcome to the Playoffs! Calgary 2 – Vancouver 1: Series Calgary 1 – Vancouver 0

Welcome to the Playoffs! Calgary 2 – Vancouver 1: Series Calgary 1 – Vancouver 0

Well that’s how it feels, winning a playoff game. It’s been a while. So long fact that many of you are too young to remember it! Last week Calgary clinched a playoff position despite being only two years into a rebuild (eat your heart out of Edmonton). To make matters more exciting the first round playoff opponent was none other then the most hated franchise in all of pro sports, the Vancouver Canucks. The provincial rivalry is probably the best…

PLAYOFFS FOR CALGARY! THE CUP RUN BEGINS!

PLAYOFFS FOR CALGARY! THE CUP RUN BEGINS!

Think back to the beginning of October, a recent snow storm was fresh and the memory in the Calgary Flames were questionable to move past 12th place in the Western Conference. Nobody knew how a team with out any superstars were performed. Would Johnny Gaudreau be able to play against players nearly twice his size? Sean Monahan, the 20year old centre, have a sophomore jinx? With Jiri Hudler put up any points? #HappyHudler with the fire helmet! pic.twitter.com/dNJk7A2env — Calgary…

Down to the Wire: Flames Playoff Chances Real

Down to the Wire: Flames Playoff Chances Real

The Calgary Flames bested the lowly Arizona Coyotes, as they should have, although it was a nailbiter until the end. Leading the way was the top line. Sean Monahan continue to impress notching us 31st goal of the year. Johnny Gaudrean opened the scoring in the first, with Monahan scoring the eventual game-winner late in the third. Here’s what you need to know about the Flames’ chances to make this year’s playoffs. The magic number is one. That’s a single…

St Louis 4 – Calgary 1 : Road to Playoffs a Nail Biter

St Louis 4 – Calgary 1 : Road to Playoffs a Nail Biter

Is it just me or are the St. Louis Blues the worst team in the NHL when it comes to clutch, grab, and slash? I guess when you’re one of the top teams in the league you can get away with anything. Today’s game would’ve been nice a win and would have solidified Calgary’s playoff push. But the legacy of GM Brad Treliving consists of three players: Jonas Hiller, Deryk Engelland, and Brandon Bollig. Jonas Hiller hopefully he committed his…

Flames Take Four Points in Back to Back vs Dallas and Nashville

Flames Take Four Points in Back to Back vs Dallas and Nashville

The playoffs are one step closer after Calgary took four points in their most recent back-to-back road games vs Nashville and Dallas. Last night, the Flames scored 5 goals, including two from Lance Bouma (hate to see what his contract year will cost…) Calgary got the benefit of playing a Shea Weber less Predator team. Also, facing the backup goalie helps. That’s not to diminish the win against the league’s best. In the, “every game is the biggest game of…

Squandering Points; Flames 3 – Stars 4 (SO)

Squandering Points; Flames 3 – Stars 4 (SO)

With only 9 games remaining in the season the young Calgary Flames team dropped more points against a non-playoff contending team. Surprisingly at this point in the season the team appeared ill-prepared. With one of the top PKs in the league, largely because they don’t take penalties, tonight was different. Although there were no goals on the man advantage, there were seven shorthanded opportunities for Dallas. Some fans on Twitter were complaining about the officiating. All of Calgary’s calls were…

Flames Pancaked vs Blues

Flames Pancaked vs Blues

Calgary 0 – St Louis 4 Calgary doesn’t really play games where the goalies steal shutouts. There were a few odd games early in the season where Hiller stole some points, but since then, not much happening. You don’t win games if you can’t score, and surprisingly Calgary is almost top ten in the league when it comes to scoring. Surprising because when the Flames can’t score, and when they are clearly outmatched and outclasses, they look really bad.
