Flames Come From Behind: Calgary 5 – Edmonton 3

Flames Come From Behind: Calgary 5 – Edmonton 3

Slow start, great second period, held on for the two points. It’s always a thrill to beat your provincial rival, especially when both teams are fighting for a playoff spot. It’s been years since Calgary and Edmonton have faced off against each other in a meaningful way. This year the talent has finally caught up and made Edmonton a better team. But they still have a ways to go to shore up their defensive problems. Despite going behind 0-2 after…

Calgary 4 – Winnipeg 1

The final game before the Christmas break brought cheer to the hometown fans as the Calgary Flames tied franchise record winning their 10th straight game at home. It sounds like a broken record but once again Johnny Gaudreau lead the way with yet another hat trick. He is quickly proving himself to be formidable in a league built for players twice his size, which is good for him considering this is a contract year he is slated to cash in…

Flames 2 – Predators 1 (OT)

Flames 2 – Predators 1 (OT)

I have no idea how the Flames won this game. There are, however, three things we know about this team. First, everyone knows the Calgary Flames struggle on the road. They showed it all first period by playing the entire 20 minutes in their own zone. It wasn’t for stellar goaltending by Kari Ramo the score would’ve been a lot worse than the 1-0. Secondly, they should’ve played the entire game 3v3. Johnny Hockey what’s stellar again in overtime sounding the…

The Winning Continues: Calgary 5 – New York 4 (OT)

The Calgary Flames have yet to lose the the game in the month of December. They have won nine games in row at home and now must find ways to do the same on the road. With a comfortable lead going up 4-1 in the third period, Calgary seemed to be coasting to a sure victory.

8 in a row at home: Calgary 4 – Buffalo 3

Make that eight wins at home in a row for the Calgary Flames. One month ago the team was completely out of the playoff picture, now despite sitting at the bottom of the Western Conference, they’re stringing together wins and have games in hand. What that means is this: the Flames are four points out of a playoff spot with two games in hand. I wouldn’t say that it comes as a surprise the team is in this position, because…

Flames End Road Trip With Loss

There’s still a number of questions surrounding this year’s Calgary Flames, most noticeably on the defensive line. Taking home 2 points of a possible eight on their four game road trip, the team suffered their most recent loss against the Chicago Blackhawks last night. The problems? Well if you want an idea of how far away this team is from contending just look at how they stack up against an elite team like the Hawks. To put it simply: they…
