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…

Worse Off. Flames Open the Season With Another Spectacular 5-2 Loss

Worse Off. Flames Open the Season With Another Spectacular 5-2 Loss

If there was one game Flames fans didn’t want to see it was this one. Brand new squad, too many new players, same old problems. Where to begin? Ah forget it, no post-game, not worth the time. Just some highlights. In goal, couldn’t really blame Smith, but he let in 4. The defence looked lost at times. The odd man rushes given up approached double digits. Toughness is completely missing. can’t expect much for a team that got smaller. Also…

Calgary Flames 2018-2019 Opening Roster Set – Let the Games Begin

Calgary Flames 2018-2019 Opening Roster Set – Let the Games Begin

Puck drop on Wednesday to open the new season of hockey. Calgary has the dubious distinction of the longest active losing streak on opening night at 8. They have a chance to turn their fate with back-to-back games vs the lowly Vancouver Canucks. Despite an underwhelming pre-season, the new look Calgary Flames will excite, if for no other reason that fans will finally get a look at the new roster. Speaking of opening night rosters, here’s what the Flames look…

HOCKEY! Flames Open Pre-Season With Loss

HOCKEY! Flames Open Pre-Season With Loss

Calgary 3 – Boston 4 (SO) The Calgary Flames opened the 2018 pre-season in China facing the Boston Bruins. The Flames have brought their starting lineup, whereas the Bruins left half at home. Although Calgary outshot the Bruins throwing 40 pucks at Halak, they couldn’t pull out a late win. In fact, they looked like the FLames of old, including going 2 for 8 on the PP (including a late PP to tie). The defence looked at time in shambles,…

Flames Finally Win in Battle of AB Part 4

Flames Finally Win in Battle of AB Part 4

Do you remember the Young Guns era? That team was really bad. Like, really bad. The Flames since March (probably since February (probably since January)) have been WORSE then the Young Guns. In fact, they have been playing as the worst team in the NHL. Pretty terrible for a cap team that was supposed to hit 100 points. HA! With off-season changes just around the corner, fans need to get through the final slow death of this team. Actually, most…

Flames Sporadic Play Nets BOA Win

Flames Sporadic Play Nets BOA Win

The Flames haven’t beaten the Oilers in a couple of years. Before that, there was a stretch of what seemed like 10 years that Calgary kept winning. But as of late, the Flames couldn’t get up for the Battle of Alberta. Tonight it changed, most in part thanks to the play of Mike Smith in goal who was outstanding. Now will it be enough to start a trend as the season fades and the playoff aspirations with it? Here’s what…

Flames Continue to Squander Points. Post Season Unlikely

Flames Continue to Squander Points. Post Season Unlikely

At this point the Flames have to play about .800 hockey to get into the post-season. Ya. Not going to happen. Playing tough competition in Pittsburgh, here are a few key takeaways. The D tightened things up led by the Captain. They need to continue upping their game though down the stretch. The top line is abysmal. Gaudreau can’t generate chances by himself. A RW would help and right now GG only solution is Troy Brouwer. Just senseless. This is…

Gulutzan Running Pre-Season Experiments in Game 64

Gulutzan Running Pre-Season Experiments in Game 64

After putting together 3 straight wins, the Flames were back to their old ways coming up short and fizzling out in a must win game. every game from here on in is a must win given how tight the Pacific Division is, and how little the Flames did at trade deadline. With the LA Kings and SJ Sharks getting better, a whole lot better, the Flames decided their deadline would amount to a waiver wire pickup. A castaway from the…

4 of 6 wins on the road

4 of 6 wins on the road

The Flames are a road team and continued to show their wares across the league visiting the Eastern seaboard in the most recent trip. Although Calgary won 4 of 6, what was even better was how they kept up with the league’s best. There were mental break downs in their losses, but for the most part the team skated with the likes of Nashville and Boston. last night’s game was a solid way to cap off their road-trip with a…
