Still Unbeaten (In Regulation): Calgary 3 – NJ 2

In one of those rare and glorious sports days for the City of Calgary, both the Stampeders and the Flames were playing at home at the same time. And for the first time in recent memory, BOTH teams won. Admittedly, before this game went down I told everyone who'd...

Winning? Flames 3 – Montreal 2

Hmmm, something seems to be amiss. The Calgary Flames don't win games in October. After all, Iginla always has a slow start. Maybe that guy was dragging the whole team down because early in the 2013 season Calgary has been a pleasant surprise. Admittedly, the sky will...

Flames Drop Home Opener 5 – 4 to Canucks

The Flames will win quite a few games up to December because other teams take them lightly. Vancouver did it and they should've lost. Even without a 'star' hockey player on the roster, and with Stajan and Cammalleri out with injuries, the Flames still compete night in...

Game 2 – Flames Win First of 2013 Season

Calgary 4 - Columbus 3 Well, it's not dump and chase hockey, it's actually exciting most of the time, at both ends of the ice. Sometimes it looks like a defensive zone fire drill, but this year's Flames are certainly different. New faces everywhere and with them come...

Flames Trade Tanguay and Sarich for Jones and O’Brien

By now news from Flames camp has hit most flood ravaged Flames fans (and those high and dry). The FLames shipping their only notable offensive player with games under his belt for a 'used to be a 20 goal scorer' in David Jones. Sarich for O'Brien a clear win, but...

Iginla Didn’t Pick Wrong, Kipper ‘Retires’ & Draft Day

Well lots going around Flames-land, most notable of course being the loss of significant portions of Saddledome memorabilia. We're talking 1989 and more. The loss of history won't be fully known till the Flames release that information, but all that said and done, the...

Flames Falter: Calgary 1 – Vancouver 4

Calgary continues their torrid pace to the bottom of the league, which at this point means a first round draft pick (they they'll no doubt squander on some unknown college kid). Playing Vancouver for the second time in 3 games was much of the same. Calgary dominating...

Flames Trade Deadline Musings

So, another trade deadline has come and gone and Flames fans are left licking there scars. Granted we did trade Iggy for a 1st, J-Bo for a potential 1st and got Blake Comeau off of the books (a win in any case) but why does this trade deadline feel so....incomplete?...

Flames Trade Icon for Bag of Hockey Pucks

Jarome Iginla Dealt to Penguins The whole country seemed to stop, or in the least too notice. Local hockey fans young and old, seasoned or bandwagoners, were stunned. With the Calgary Flames slipping out of playoff contention yet again, it became apparent was a...
