Anaheim 3 – Calgary 2: Round 2 Series Anaheim 4 – Calgary 1

Anaheim 3 – Calgary 2: Round 2 Series Anaheim 4 – Calgary 1

This Game five post-game summary won’t include any season summary, just tonight’s game. With everything on the line the Calgary Flames flew into Anaheim for Game 5 of the best of seven series. The subtext for every away game in Anaheim is how long it’s been since the Flames have won, they haven’t won for as long as Johnny Goudreau has been alive (at least that’s what it seems.) Calgary looked to defy history by sticking to their game plan…

Only Yourself to Blame: Flames Lose 4-2 : Series 3-1 Ducks

Only Yourself to Blame: Flames Lose 4-2 : Series 3-1 Ducks

There are some hope that the Calgary Flames could pull this one out of the hat and draw even in the best-of-seven series. Anaheim was the top team in the Western Conference because of their size, grit, and tenacity. Having two of the top skilled players on their team doesn’t hurt either. Calgary responds with a top line that’s been mostly absent and hurt. Their most potent offensive threat? Diminutive Johnny Gaudreau. Despite having very few offensive weapons to respond…

Come from behind AGAIN! Calgary 4 – Anaheim 3 OT : Series 2 – 1

Come from behind AGAIN! Calgary 4 – Anaheim 3 OT : Series 2 – 1

He’s been due. This shot attempts have been there. The ice-time was more than any other forward. Mikael Backlund seemed ready to break out in this series but he doesn’t have a place to show for it. That’ll change tonight after the comeback kids turned another desperate attempt into a far fetched victory. Falling two games behind, Calgary looked come back home in front of the home crowd find some new energy and hopefully their winning ways. Home ice has…

Anaheim 3 : Calgary 0 – Series Duck 2 – Flames 0

Anaheim 3 : Calgary 0 – Series Duck 2 – Flames 0

We knew the Anaheim Ducks we’re a good team, but we didn’t expect the Calgary Flames to play into their hands. Down one game already, in the best-of-seven series, the Calgary Flames entered game two after being badly outplayed in GAME 1. Coach Hartley said all right things in the morning skate, and even attempted to change the lineup, but hist changes weren’t good enough and in fact threw the Flames for a loop. Although small in stature, the one…

Flames 7 – Canucks 4 : Series Win – Post game thoughts

Flames 7 – Canucks 4 : Series Win – Post game thoughts

Prior to Game 6, after the disappointing Game 5 win, the Calgary Flames third line center Mikael Backlund had some word for the media where he guaranteed a win a la Mark Messier. He retracted that later on saying, “I didn’t guarantee a win, I just said we weren’t going to lose”. Yea, same thing Mikis. Ten minutes into the game two things were certain: the Calgary Flames faithful at the ‘Dome were doing their part, blowing the roof off…

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

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…
