Calgary Flames Smash Vancouver Canucks in Home Finale 7-3

Calgary Flames Smash Vancouver Canucks in Home Finale 7-3

Mikael Backlund Records First Career Hat-Trick If there’s one thing you know as a Calgary flames fan it’s the shared hatred for the divisional rivals. The recent history between the two teams makes every game prospect for gloating rights. With both teams heading for an early off-season, only pride was on the line. As a fan, you look at your team, and although you may not be making the playoffs, it’s oh so satisfying to drop kick the Canucks in…

Flames Win Wild Affair: Calgary 6 – SJ 5 (SO)

Flames Win Wild Affair: Calgary 6 – SJ 5 (SO)

This game had everything. Excitement, scoring, no defence, terrible goaltending, overtime, and a shootout. Calgary went up 4-0 in the first but squandered it off of some ill timed penalties. It’s easy to blame the refs, and they were too noticeable, but Calgary shot themselves in the foot. What’s been particularly noticeable is how Hartley is killing the team mid-season, more on that in the next post. Here’s the post-game

Flames Win 4 – 1 Against Crapcouver

Flames Win 4 – 1 Against Crapcouver

The Calgary Flames may not be making this year’s playoffs, but at least they beat their archrivals and everybody’s most hated team, the Vancouver Canucks. There’re basically only three storylines: – rolling four solid forechecking lines; – a near shutout for Jonah Hiller – Sean Monahan scored his first NHL slapshot goal.

Flames Continue Downward Spiral

Flames Continue Downward Spiral

Kiss the playoffs goodbye. We knew they were out in December, but the Flames are simply a bad hockey club. For a myriad of reasons, this team team won’t be in the post-season. Right now, the main reason is there is zero secondary scoring. That’s how far away this team is from competing for a championship–they are HALF a team away. SIX forwards (I would get ride of the entire 3rd and 4th lineup) need to replaced, but in reality…

Loser Flames Continue 20 Minute Efforts for Loss

Loser Flames Continue 20 Minute Efforts for Loss

Calgary 1 – Nashville 2 It’s now a foregone conclusion that the Calgary Flames will not be in this year’s edition of playoff hockey. The simple reason is the team simply cannot play consistent hockey. For example in tonight’s Game day put in a 20 minute effort and got the result of another loss. For 40 minutes they failed to put up a fight. There was no pushback, no offense, no forecheck, no nothing. Here’s the post game vignette that…

Sam Bennett Makes History: Flames 6 – Florida 0

The youngest Flames to score a hat-trick, and the youngest to score four in a game, Sam Bennett, ladies and gentlemen. YOU CAN PUT IT IN THE WIN COLUMN! @sbennett_93 scored 4 goals in a 6-0 win over the #FlaPanthers!

Arizona 2 – Calgary 1

Arizona 2 – Calgary 1

The Calgary Flames dropped and much needed two points against their divisional rivals who sit two points ahead in the standings. The main problem? Lack of scoring. With Kari Ramo at the top of his game the offence has dried up. The top line hasn’t produced a point in five games. Tonight the only scoring came off the stick of Gaudreau who manage to pot his 18th on the PP. Not only has secondary scoring dried up, but the top…

Flames Register First Shut Out of Season: Calgary 4 – Colorado 0

Flames Register First Shut Out of Season: Calgary 4 – Colorado 0

It was the night where if you were a Colorado Avalanche fan the setting was perfect. Jarome Iginla sitting at 599 goals and looking for a number is 600 against his old team. Despite all of the hoopla, Calgary pushed back in their second game following the Christmas break and cashed in on some timely secondary scoring. This pos game summary is a quick one. The fourth line scored two 2 goals. The power play continues to struggle. Kari Ramo…

Anaheim 1 – Calgary 0 and Ryan Kesler is a Garbage Hockey Player

Anaheim 1 – Calgary 0 and Ryan Kesler is a Garbage Hockey Player

It was nice to see Dennis Wideman take exception to Ryan Kesler’s late game antics, putting the puck in the Flames’ empty net after the buzzer sounded. Too bad Wideman doesn’t get mad like that on ice when it matters. As for Kesler? I can count on 3 fingers the league’s garbage players and he’s #2 right behind Marchand and just ahead of Burrows. His chintzy play all game is merely indicative to the trash he is, a player in…
