Flames Win Second Battle of Alberta Instalment: Calgary 5 – Oilers 4

Sometimes you need to be lucky in order to be good. The Calgary Flames are not off to a good start, in fact they have begun the season with one of their worst in franchise history. To find some bounces to go their way would do wonders for their confidence. With only two wins on the season, and high expectations,  everyone is surprised of this year’s installment of Flames looks like what last year’s was supposed to look like. Heading into Edmonton…

Flames Comeback Win in OT: Detroit 2 – Calgary 3

There’re times during this game that the Flames of old fans are used to seeing briefly appeared. It says that the team is still working out the kinks with new bodies and the new season. Here’s the post game vignette. I’m beginning to wonder whether or not the flames woes early on in the season is attributed to the coach’s insistence on playing favorites based on last years performance. How else can you explain Deryk Engelland playing on the second pairing…

Tables Have Turned: Calgary 2 – Oilers 5

Tables Have Turned: Calgary 2 – Oilers 5

There was a time when the Calgary Flames used to dominate the Edmonton Oilers in the battle of Alberta. That time was the past 10 years if not more. But over the past 10 years Edmonton has been gifted first round draft pick after first round draft pick, and although messing it up for nearly a decade has made the organization and the laughing stock in the league, they are getting better. As for the Calgary Flames, they’re getting worse….

Calgary 3 – Vancouver 2 (OT)

Calgary 3 – Vancouver 2 (OT)

The second game of the season against the same team they faced in the season opener, but this time in Vancouver, the Calgary Flames looked to right the ship after putting up an abysmal season opener at home. Things got off to a good start with the visitors leading by one after the first. Vancouver tied it up and went up by one after two and it was the comeback kids finding their form in the third period, applying pressure…

Flames Stink Out Home Opener: Calgary 1 – Vancouver 5

It’s early October which means regular-season hockey is upon us. Coming out of camp Calgary had fewer decisions to make due to injury and waivers. The only question mark sat in the crease with the team carrying three goaltenders. Despite having the worst numbers in the pre-season, Kari Ramo was tapped as the starter for the season opener. He carried the Flames through their playoff run including the series victory over the Vancouver Canucks. Vancouver’s season ended in the Saddledome…

Should the Edmonton Eskimos Fire Their Social Media Manager?

Ignoring the fact the team name is now considered a derogatory term for indigenous people in Canada’s far North, the Edmonton Eskimos released a tweet following the Calgary Flames loss to the Anaheim Duck’s in the Second Round of the NHL playoffs. The tweet was not only in distaste, but it was also reminiscent of a tweet a week earlier from the Houston Rocket, and lead to the firing of their social media manager. This tweet from the Houston Rocket’s…
