Fast Paced Affair Leads to Victory: Calgary 5 – Winnipeg 3

The Jets came to town. Years in the making the Winnipeg Jets returned to Calgary and with them came a multitude of fans. Something about the atmosphere in the rink and the torrid pace of Eastern Conference teams coming to the 'Dome made for an exciting evening. Other...

Depleted Lineup Beats Montreal: Calgary 5 – Habs 4

Surprisingly Montreal came into Calgary the worst team in the league--and the Flames barely beat them. Things aren't looking good. Jackman out with an injury (not that he was a goal scoring machine), so that essentially means two full lines from the AHL come Friday...

Another Quality Loss: Calgary 1 – Dallas 2 (SO)

When the Flames fail to make the post-season yet again they can surely blame man-game lost. They lead the NHL by a long shot. Tonight another two players out, Bouma and Comeau. Not that they're contributors offensively, but it still adds up. ALl that to say, secondary...

Can’t win in Anaheim: Calgary 2 – Ducks 3

Three word game review: heartbreaking Anaheim loss. Calgary won't make the playoffs this year (can only lose maybe 4-5 more games in the last 17) because they can't beat the likes of NYI, Columbus, and Anaheim. It's that simple (well actually there are many other...

Almost Lost: Calgary 4 – Phoenix 2

What's with the ability of the Calgary Flames to blow huge leads gift wrapped to them in the first period of play? They have a knack at one thing, inconsistency, and now one other--blowing first period leads. They almost did it again after a first period 'explosion'...

Flames Drop Another Pant Load: Calgary 1 – St Louis 3

Three word review. Mission in action. THe difference between ST louis and Calgary is simple. St Louis plays to their system with heart. Calgary is a team of old vets who on any given night will have half a dozen players who dont give a damn. Lately Iginla has lead the...

Not Again. Flames 4 – Flyers 5 (SO)

Will Feaster Blow it Up? The worst lead in hockey is any lead the Flames have. After the GM went public with his displeasure with the non-existent intensity in Calgary's game the team responded with much of the same, if not worse. Threatening whole sale changes in the...

Another Lazy Loss: Calgary 3 – Phoenix 4 (SO)

Three word game review: pathetic second period. You know how many people care about hockey in Phoenix? 7. You know how many players on the Flames give a damn in a playoff race? 3. And Matt Stajan is one of them. How bad is that? Calgary took the second period off in a...

Pathetic Effort by Calgary Flames

Three word game review. Pathetic. Lazy. Embarrassing. For once the Edmonton Oilers won a Battle of Alberta. They can thank the Flames for not showing up, less Kiprsuoff. TOp to bottom the team couldn't have played any worse. The minor league team (half of it's already...

Flames Drop Point in Dallas: Calgary 2 – Dallas 3 (SO)

Dallas is another one of those sad teams that struggles to even fill half the arena on any given night. They have no business having a franchise but the Gary Bettman expansion put a team in the middle of Texas. Thankfully, that does benefit the league since garbage...

Flames Bounce Leafs: Calgary 5 – Toronto 1

Calgary has now picked up points in their last six games, and sit just 3 points out of 6th position in the race for the playoffs. A far cry to the November debacle. Although every game from here on in counts, the Flames look like a team that has confidence and is...

Massive Win: Calgary 3 – Vancouver 2 (SO)

Sorry for the late post, it was stuck in 'draft' First things first, Calgary, missing their second and third lines almost entirely, overcame massive adversity to capture two very important points in their sometimes futile race for the playoffs. Coming into the game...
