2 in a row: Calgary 4 – St Louis 1

2016-17 Calgary Flames Season Takes Off

It came down to the wire but the final roster has been set and the 2015-2016 Calgary Flames season is about to begin. The single questions fans are asking (since thee Gaudreau signing): will the Flames make the playoffs? I would say, YES! The goaltending alone I...

Calgary Flames Training Camp Opens

The 2016-2017 season is a couple weeks away which means the players are all in town ready to kick-off another race to the Cup. Probably the biggest piece of the puzzle for the team--improvement in goal. Here's Brian Elliot, shedding his all blue pads from his time in...
