Calgary Flames Smash Vancouver Canucks in Home Finale 7-3

Calgary Flames Smash Vancouver Canucks in Home Finale 7-3

Mikael Backlund Records First Career Hat-Trick If there's one thing you know as a Calgary flames fan it's the shared hatred for the divisional rivals. The recent history between the two teams makes every game prospect for gloating rights. With both teams heading for...

How Bob Hartley is Killing the Flames Mid-Season

It's just past the midway markup the 2015-2016 NHL season and the Calgary Flames hover around bottom bottom of the league. Nobody is expecting them to make this year's playoffs although they might make a late push. Although the players could be blamed for the slow...

Flames Win Wild Affair: Calgary 6 – SJ 5 (SO)

This game had everything. Excitement, scoring, no defence, terrible goaltending, overtime, and a shootout. Calgary went up 4-0 in the first but squandered it off of some ill timed penalties. It's easy to blame the refs, and they were too noticeable, but Calgary shot...

Flames Win 4 – 1 Against Crapcouver

The Calgary Flames may not be making this year's playoffs, but at least they beat their archrivals and everybody's most hated team, the Vancouver Canucks. There're basically only three storylines: - rolling four solid forechecking lines; - a near shutout for Jonah...

Flames Continue Downward Spiral

Kiss the playoffs goodbye. We knew they were out in December, but the Flames are simply a bad hockey club. For a myriad of reasons, this team team won't be in the post-season. Right now, the main reason is there is zero secondary scoring. That's how far away this team...

Post All-Star Game Wrap Up 2016

A photo posted by Calgary Flames (@nhlflames) on Jan 31, 2016 at 5:26pm PST It's been over a decade since I last watched an All-Star game but the hoopla around John Scott piqued my interest enough to turn on the game (I just get the skills competition). What can I...

Loser Flames Continue 20 Minute Efforts for Loss

Calgary 1 - Nashville 2 It's now a foregone conclusion that the Calgary Flames will not be in this year's edition of playoff hockey. The simple reason is the team simply cannot play consistent hockey. For example in tonight's Game day put in a 20 minute effort and got...

Sam Bennett Makes History: Flames 6 – Florida 0

The youngest Flames to score a hat-trick, and the youngest to score four in a game, Sam Bennett, ladies and gentlemen. YOU CAN PUT IT IN THE WIN COLUMN! @sbennett_93 scored 4 goals in a 6-0 win over the #FlaPanthers! A photo posted by Calgary Flames (@nhlflames) on...

Arizona 2 – Calgary 1

The Calgary Flames dropped and much needed two points against their divisional rivals who sit two points ahead in the standings. The main problem? Lack of scoring. With Kari Ramo at the top of his game the offence has dried up. The top line hasn't produced a point in...

Flames Come From Behind: Calgary 5 – Edmonton 3

Slow start, great second period, held on for the two points. It's always a thrill to beat your provincial rival, especially when both teams are fighting for a playoff spot. It's been years since Calgary and Edmonton have faced off against each other in a meaningful...

Calgary 4 – Winnipeg 1

The final game before the Christmas break brought cheer to the hometown fans as the Calgary Flames tied franchise record winning their 10th straight game at home. It sounds like a broken record but once again Johnny Gaudreau lead the way with yet another hat trick. He...
