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.

Say, ‘No’, to NHL Loser Points

Say, ‘No’, to NHL Loser Points

On what planet do losers get rewarded with points? Well, actually, lots of sports, but so few have the point scheme the NHL does, and teams that win more games actually sit lower in the standings. Once again, this is why the shootout and loser point is just shite. Calgary has more wins, more regulation wins, a better shootout record, more goals for and a better overall goal differential, yet we trail Winnipeg by 3 points. ?#?endtheshootout? ?#?loserpointstoo?

NHL Officiating Takes a Dive: Calgary 1 – NY 0

NHL Officiating Takes a Dive: Calgary 1 – NY 0

If you want evidence of NHL officials taking pre-game bribes then this game was Exhibit A. Well, maybe not, but the referees were horrid. Multiple breakaways and ensuing trips that lead to no calls was the MO of tonight’s officials. Did they take away opportunities? Absolutely. Did they cause the loss? Not a chance. Calgary embarked on a seven game Eastern road trip that began tonight against the NY Rangers. The Rangers are good, talented in every way, and exceed…

Calgary 3 – Vancouver 2

Calgary 3 – Vancouver 2

There haven’t been many wins against the Canucks over the years, but every single one is glorious. Beating the most hated franchise in any professional sport is pure bliss. A solid win for the good guys in a Pacific Division rivalry. Calgary and Vancouver are now dead even in the standings. With the win the Flames continue their dominance over Pacific division rivals, which will play really well in the stretch run. Can’t stop now, despite all the winning, everyone…

The Truck Keeps Rolling: Calgary 3 – SJ 1

The Truck Keeps Rolling: Calgary 3 – SJ 1

Who do thought that at the beginning of the season come beginning of February the Calgary Flames would be sent in second and the Pacific division? Not I, not the pundits, not nobody. What do you think about it this lineup lacks the superstar, doesn’t have a prolific score, how’s it completely abysmal bottom to pairing, Yet they continue to find ways to win. The biggest reason why? Probably the value and power of ‘team’. This team believes in itself,…

Come From Behind #9

Come From Behind #9

Calgary Beats Edmonton Yet Again. It must be brutal being an Edmonton Oilers fan. The team had a two goal third period lead, but as we all know by now, third periods are a kind of specialty for the Flames. Four unanswered third period goals and you have a league leading 34 third period goals and 9th come from behind third period win. Also it ensure Calgary adds some points in the hotly contested playoff race. What can’t be ignore…
