Come Back Kids: Calgary 6 – Colorado 5

Come Back Kids: Calgary 6 – Colorado 5

After an uneventful first period that saw the Calgary Flames control most of the play, the goals started to come fast and furious. 11 goals in total, with Colorado taking the second, and Calgary closing it out with a commanding third period of play. Why did the Flames win? Let’s start things off with Sam Bennett. Snake bit all year, he’s finding ways to contribute. After Jankowski got his bell rung with a huge open ice hit, Bennett dropped the…

Roller Coster of Emotions: Flames 2 – Leafs 1

  View this post on Instagram   A post shared by NHL (@nhl) on Oct 29, 2018 at 6:45pm PDT Flames deserved this one. Arguably their best defensive game of the season put together for two points at the Scotiabank Arena. They dominated the game apart from a late 5v3 PP gifted to the Leafs that stole some momentum. This team is a far cry from the hot mess less than 5 days ago at home vs the Penguins where…

Calgary Flames Suffer Worst Defeat Since Young Guns Era

Calgary Flames Suffer Worst Defeat Since Young Guns Era

That was a bad team, a bad team for nearly a decade. A 9-1 loss in front of home fans who paid good money to see a complete meltdown. What’s there to say 10 games in other than this is a bad team that’s lost. It’s worse than last year despite BT’s attempts to build a team with deeper “identity”. Hasn’t happened. The number of times Gaudreau gets plastered into the end boards with zero response from the team. Ya,…

New Ducks Third Jersey Review

New Ducks Third Jersey Review

Welcome to a new segment on FlamesForum: NHL sweater reviews. Our friend Adam at @adams_sweater_reviews will now deliver his review of NHL sweaters for your reading pleasure.  These are bad. I think the Ducks tried too much with these sweaters. They wanted elements of the original uniforms so we got the duck mask logo, purple and green, and the diagonal waist stripe. They wanted elements of the current uniforms so we got black and gold, and the webbed foot. They also wanted…

New Jets Third Jersey Review

New Jets Third Jersey Review

Welcome to a new segment on FlamesForum: NHL sweater reviews. Our friend Adam at @adams_sweater_reviews delivers his review of NHL sweaters for your reading pleasure. Firstly, we should reserve judgment until we see how they look with the rest of the uniform. Simple designs often look underwhelming on their own, but great when combined with the rest of the gear. This is quite common with soccer and football uniforms. My initial impression of these was that they are underwhelming. I…

Flames Post Solid Win in Nashville: 3-0

Flames Post Solid Win in Nashville: 3-0

It’s only three games in and it feels as if fans have seen the entire spectrum of possible Flames play. The season started with the worst, and now we’ve swung all the way to the other end of the spectrum with tonight’s game. In an 82 Game season what ultimately separates average teams from those that will sit at the top of the Conference is simply consistency. Consistency throughout the entire lineup and across even strength to special teams play….

Welcome to a new segment on FlamesForum: NHL sweater reviews. Our friend Adam at @adams_sweater_reviews will now deliver his review of NHL sweaters for your reading pleasure. Let’s begin with the 2003 Calgary Flames classic jersey. In 2003, Calgary introduced black as a primary colour, changing the Flaming “C” to black on the home sweaters. That season Calgary went to the Stanley Cup, revitalizing interest in the team. The jerseys became an instant classic. The basic design has since remained…

Game 2 – Reversal of Fortunes – Calgary 7 : Vancouver 4

Game 2 – Reversal of Fortunes – Calgary 7 : Vancouver 4

The Calgary Flames launched their 2018 season opener in grand fashion. After getting their faces beaten in, literally, in Game 1 versus the Vancouver Canucks, they sought revenge at home. In a rare home at home series to start the season, the Flames had a chance to redeem themselves after the embarrassing opener. The talk leading up to the game centered around two things. The Calgary Flames looking like the old Calgary Flames with an inept power play, and the…
