Flames Lose Seventh in a Row

And just like that the fairy-tale season for the Calgary Flames is done. Sure, there's still hope they can run .500 from here on in and maybe squeak in, but without any form of offensive scoring you can kiss that hope goodbye. No matter how hard I tried, making fun of...

Josh Jooris Hat-Trick: Calgary 5 – Arizona 2

Getting the most bang for your buck, that's what the Calgary Flames are doing this season, second in the league currently for points divided by total salary. It helps when rookies like Josh Jooris are scoring and helping the team to victories. He makes the league...

Shut out for Ramo: Flames 2 – SJ 0

Calgary is a solid 6-0-1 after a loss and continue to beat teams that are bigger and more skilled. With reinforcements on the way, the Flames played their second of three games on the road rolling through California and Arizona on Saturday. With the win tonight...

Flames Fall Again in Anaheim 3-2

How long has it been since the FLames have won in Anaheim? 9 years? Something like that. Calgary needs to find a way to play their third periods in the first two, or at least improve period 1 because they routinely fall behind. No game review, just copy and paste from...

Last Second Win: Calgary 5 – New Jersey 4 (SO)

Somehow the Calgary Flames continue to find ways to come from behind and win games. Despite suffering perhaps their worst defensive performance of the season, they found a way to claw back and score twice with the net empty late to tie and ultimately win in the...

You can put it in the win column! Flames 4 – Anaheim 3 (SO)

So much to talk about with this game so let's jump in. Prior to the contest bloggers around town were using their inept stats skills to predict the eventual demise of the Flames season. Yes, I would agree they can't keep the same level they've been playing at, but...

Calgary 4 – Ottawa 2

Another win to make it two in a row for the Flames, and their second in a row at home. Nobody really knows how long this win streak will last for the club, but we'll take it while it lasts. The reason why you can't bank on consistency just yet is because every night...

Come From Behind Win: Flames 6 – Florida 4

After the first period you thought about the Flames of old, how the team can't find consistency, how it was the same old same old. If you get outworked and ultimately lose to Florida, one of the league's bottom feeders, you question the state of your own rebuild. That...

Flames Smash Canadiens 6-2

Well you didn't really expect this one. Calgary outplayed Montreal the last time the teams meet last week at home. Montreal won in a shoot-out. TOnight, Calgary badly outplayed the Canadiens at home, a place where no team in the NHL has picked up a point this year....

Flames Lose to Montreal in Shootout 2-1

I had a bet with a neighbour who quickly took the Flames to win. Fine, I'll take Montreal, after all, for a beer, they are the top team in the East. I didn't expect a Flames team to largely dominate. They looked really good 5v5 and took control most of the game. Where...

Flames Drop Canes 5-0

If you want to have a look at a team that's not really good and probably playing for the top draft pick next year then tonight was the night. Although the Carolina Hurricanes have a number of key injuries, Calgary was dominant in all facets of the game. They looked...

Flames Squander Point in Snore Fest vs Tampa

Calgary 1 - Tampa Bay 2 (OT) Calgary returned home after a length two week road trip which saw the team exceed expectations. With a 5 game homestand coming up, the Flames looked to extend their point streak to, well, two games. Here are some thoughts. TJ Brodie is...
