Clutch Win: Calgary 5 – Phoenix 4

Well that was unexpected. Two wins in a row, a win back-to-back, and a come from behind win, all that with only one natural center in the line-up (and that's Matt Stajan). The Flames need wins to stay in contention for a playoff spot that's starting to disappear in...

Flames Lame Again: Phoenix 4 – Calgary 0

After a great performance last night versus Dallas the Flames put in another stinker. Every other game the same thing is observed: Despite a change of the coaching staff the Calgary Flames are not a consistent hockey club. That means the finger points straight to the...

Gutsy Win: Calgary 4 – Dallas 3

The last 24 hours has been a bit of whirlwind, all of which hasn't really left the Flames any better off. First, Leland Irving demoted to the farm club never to return (we hope). Next up, a surprising move to all, Blair Jones off to the minors. The second natural NHL...

Appalling Hockey. Flames 2 – St Louis 5

The point of games in hand is to win games in hand. The MO for the Calgary Flames is to squander every opportunity. What was supposed to change in the new coaching regime -- consistency -- appears to be a moot point. It seems, finally, cats out of the bag: there's not...

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...
