Dramatic Come From Being Win

Dramatic Come From Being Win

Calgary 6 – Philadelphia 5 (OT) View this post on Instagram A post shared by Calgary Flames (@nhlflames) on Dec 12, 2018 at 8:37pm PST How did it happen? One minute remaining, Rasmus Andersson’s clutch goal gave the Flames a chance….to score another just to tie. That’s right, down two goals heading into the final two minutes the Flames found a way to not only draw to within one, but TIE the game with 7 seconds left.  The cardiac kids…

Smitty Back – Calgary 2 – Minnesota 0

Smitty Back – Calgary 2 – Minnesota 0

Mike Smith posted a shut out in his continued bid to rise above a slow season start. Here are three thoughts on the Flames win. Continued dominance of the top line with Gaudreau setting up Lindholm for two beauties.  Mike Smith once again closing the door with huge saves at crucial moments.  One of those games where you file under “bad reffing”. A lot of missed slashes, a trip that should’ve ended the game, and last second steam roll of…

Flames Continue Winning Ways in Columbus with 2 Solid Weeks of Play

Flames Continue Winning Ways in Columbus with 2 Solid Weeks of Play

What have the Calgary Flames been up to in the last 2 weeks? Mostly winning. After getting blown out at home against Pittsburgh, the team has only lost three games since. Although there are the same questions lingering about the team (secondary scoring and goaltending) their position at the top of the Pacific Division is widening. You can’t argue with winning so perhaps some of the heat surrounding consistency can come down. Fans like me just aren’t used to the…

Flames Assert Themselves in Two Convincing Wins

Flames Assert Themselves in Two Convincing Wins

Two big games against divisional rivals and two big wins. Starting Saturday against the Oilers. The Flames met the Oilers push with a come-from-behind victory against their provincial rivals. Oilers fans were losing their minds over the play of Matthew Tkachuk when they should’ve been focussed on two points. Why the beleaguered franchise chose this night of al night’s to get up in a huff is beyond me. The events of the game spiralled downward after a cheap Oilers hit,…

Same ol Problems for Flames

Same ol Problems for Flames

The Calgary Flames completed a brief Southern California road trip and came away with two of a possible six points. Consistency remains the obvious key factor that will determine whether this year’s version will be any better than previous. So far, although there are some positives, the same problems are plaguing the team.

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,…

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….

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…
