Still Lame on the Road: Calgary 3 – Nashville 5

Calgary had all the opportunities to win this game but defensive breakdowns and a complete lack of offence meant yet another road loss. Double Standards: Protect the Goalies Most fans will be lambasting the referees for their shoddy calls all game. True enough, the...

Flames Post Two in a Row: Glencross with HatTrick

The Calgary Flames capitalized on a shaky Pekka Rinne and a tired Nashville Predator lineup by potting 6 goals en route to a 6-3 victory and their second win in a row. The Flames currently sit near the bottom of the Western Conference and fans are starting to jump on...

Two In a Row: Calgary 4 – San Jose 1

Maybe they took advantage of a tired team playing their second game is as many nights. Maybe they have just the right mix to start winning games. Whatever the cause, Calgary appears to be an improved team with the meagre tinkering that's gone on in the past few days....

Pathetic Flames Squander Four Goal Lead

Season over? It seems every 3rd post-game report by FlamesForum contains 'pathetic Flames'. Well, they certainly are. Given chance after chance to make hay and move ahead in the rankings, they squander it due to lazy play and atrocious defensive zone coverage....

Pathetic Power Play: Calgary 1 – Minnesota 2 (OT)

Why does Minnesota even have a hockey club? The owners spent huge money to bring big names but they play trap hockey that puts the most hyper child to sleep. So sad for such a hockey city. Calgary was looking to make it three wins in a row but were foiled. Players...

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...
