Come from behind – Flames Beat Canucks 3-2

Come from behind – Flames Beat Canucks 3-2

The Calgary Flames are on another November winning streak thanks to Matt Cooke.  “I didn’t see him coming, he hits hard, and he got me good there,” said Iginla, who challenged Cooke twice, but said he didn’t have a problem with the hit. “It was clean, but it doesn’t make you feel good. I don’t know if you want to say it woke me up, but it definitely gets you more into it.” Jarome Iginla single handedly sparked a comeback…

Back on Track – Flames Win 3-0 Against Anaheim

Back on Track – Flames Win 3-0 Against Anaheim

It’s not the 7th game all over again, but we’ll take it. The Calgary Flames snapped the unbeaten streak of the Anaheim Ducks with a solid 3-0 win. Miikka collected his 2nd shut out of the season, saving over 35 shots in a game that saw every Duck player crash the net. The referees were terrible with their inability to call over half a dozen intentional crease crashes, but hey, the joke of the league that is the NHL won’t…

The Tony Show – Calgary Wins 3-1 Against Stars

The Tony Show – Calgary Wins 3-1 Against Stars

It was the Tony Amonte show tonight against the Stars. 2 posts and 2 goals were all Tony Amonte had to show for a nights work. Amonte lead the Flames to a 3-1 win over the Stars in a low scoring, high hitting, hardly any shots, affair. The Flames only managed to get 15 shots on net all night, but kept the Stars to under 25. What was probably the best home game of the season, and Amonte’s best game…

Flames Finally Win Against St. Louis 3-2

Flames Finally Win Against St. Louis 3-2

The best start of the season finally, only 13 games in. The Flames went back to the bread and butter forecheck that has made them the team they are [were]. Lombardi opened the scoring in the first with a nice feed from Tanguay. But they weren’t done there, Andrew Ference took a low point shot even strength and BYRON RITCHIE! scored off a nice tip. Hard work was the name of the game for the first period, however, stupid penalties…

Flames Drop Another – Worst Team in West? Loose 3-2

Flames Drop Another – Worst Team in West? Loose 3-2

The Calgary Flames have dropped yet another contest, showing how their current play is worthy of the bottom basement dwellings in the West division. The Flames went back a few more steps by loosing 3-2 to Detroit in Detroit. When your team can’t win a face off all game you know it’s a bad night (ok they only doubled them in the face-off dot but it’s still really embarassing.) It wasn’t a close game despite the score and despite the…

Prust and Boyd Recalled – New Life Into Flames?

Prust and Boyd Recalled – New Life Into Flames?

The Calgary Flames announced the recall of left wing Brandon Prust and center Dustin Boyd. It is the first NHL recall for both players. Prust and Boyd will join the Flames on their three-game road trip which begins Wednesday in Detroit. At least one will factor into the game, maybe both. Boyd leads the Ak-Sar-Ben Knights in scoring with four goals and nine assists for thirteen points in nine games. He is second in AHL rookie scoring and assists. His…

Flames Drop Yet Another – Loose 4-2 to Caps

Flames Drop Yet Another – Loose 4-2 to Caps

Poor defensively play continues to haunt the Calgary Flames. This team was once considered one of the top defensive teams touting one of the best front 6 D-men. That was then, this is now. The Calgary Flames dropped yet another home game staying in the basement of the Western Conference. The Flames are incapable of playing sound defensive games giving away pucks in bad situations in their own zone and forgetting defensive assignments. Even Vezina trophy winner Kiprusoff is playing…

Flames Loose Yet Again – 3-2 Against Nashville

Flames Loose Yet Again – 3-2 Against Nashville

The Flames were tested with a above average hockey team and stunk the joint out. Thank goodness Jarome showed up, but that was about it… Then again, how would I know? I didn’t see the game, and I don’t know many people who did since TV coverage was next to nil for this game. Too bad CBC didn’t show this one…. oh right, we aren’t a liberal province, only Vancouver and every Toronto game gets played Saturdays….. I’m joking, kinda,…

Flames Win 6-1 Against Coyotes

Flames Win 6-1 Against Coyotes

The Calgary Flames finally put it together–just kidding. One team was going to get their third win of the season, and lucky for us it was the Flames. This isn’t to suggest the Flames dominated the Coyotes in every aspect of the game all game, but they did manage their second home win. The first two periods weren’t especially special. McCarty tried in vain to beat up two Coyotes, one of them Laraque…. Props to McCarty for starting a physical…
