Flames Disappoint Yet Again: Calgary 1 – Minnesota 2 (SO)

Not much to say about this game. Really boring. Really bad hockey. Really bad for the game to watch the Wild come to town. I wonder how much money teams lose in lost ticket revenue. Needless to say, the Flames can't score and are in dire need for leadership. Jarome...

2W: Flames 4 – Columbus 3 (OT)

Whew. How about that? An overtime win. For a while there you thought the curse in Columbus was going to come back and stick it to the Flames yet again. With numerous reasons to fold the tent even before play began, the Calgary Flames picked up their second win in a...

Crucial Win on Road Swing: Calgary 4 – Detroit 1

Miikka Kiprusoff Leaves Game with Groin Injury It's been a while, perhaps never, when fans saw Miikka Kiprusoff not come out for a game he's started because of injury. That's what happened in the third period in the first of three games on the road for the league...

First Win: Calgary 4 – Edmonton 3

Well that's a bit more like it. Calgary strung together a near 60 minute game to come out victorious against an Edmonton squad that hasn't bested the Flames for points in ages. With the first win under the belt the team has a better idea what it takes to take two...

Shootout Loss: Calgary 2 – Vancouver 3 (SO)

What's it going to take for this team to put together a victory? Three games in and nothing. Things look to be tightening up, but in a short season if all you're taking from games is 'positives' you're a losing team at the end of the day. Both teams entered the...

Half & Half: Flames 4 – Anaheim 5

After 40 minutes worth of funk a night before in the home opener, Flames bench boss practically guaranteed, "we will be better". Well after the first 20 minutes of this game one had to wonder. 3-0, early goals, the team playing demonstrably bad. Fans rolling their...

Season Opener Fail: Calgary 1 – San Jose 4

Maybe a coaching change can't help this team after all. It's not a full 'rebuild' so any talk about 'look at the positives coming out of this' is a moot point--there's not time to 'look at the positives'. After a lengthy lockout that ended with the start of a...

2012-2013 Calgary Flames Stanley Cup Run

FlamesForum readers welcome back! A new season is finally upon us and regardless of where you sit on the collective bargaining debacle if you have any ounce of interest in hockey then you're sure to be curious about this year's Calgary Flames. Pundits have put the...

2012-2013 NHL Saved – Short Season Arrives

The waiting finally ended much to the delight of hardcore fans, owners, players, and probably the most thankful, all the people who work in the service industry who've taken a hit with the absence of hockey. It's true, in a country that claims the game, no NHL leaves...

November Games Cancelled

Surprising nobody, NHL games for the entire month of November has been cancelled. The rumor is December we'll see hockey. Most notable events around December Winter Classic where tons of money is thought to be changing hands. THe issue I have with that is it's merely...

NHL Lockout

No hockey. Hooray :( But unlike TSN and their 6 hours of coverage of nothing in particular, we're going to shut off the lights. No point covering the worse professional sports league when it comes to work stoppages.

Calgary Flames Add Bob Hartley as Coach

More of the Same Since Darryl Sutter left in his role as coach (where he is most competent) there has been a revolving door of sense in the Flames organization. First it was the promotion of Jim Playfair who didn't perform up to the expectations fans and management...
