Flames Fail in LA: Calgary 1 – Kings 2 (SO)

"If they don't score on this powerplay we're done." I said that 5 times. I was right, it just took longer than expected. Calgary can still make the playoffs but it's going to be damn hard from here on in. They've lost too many games they need to win, and unfortunately...

Referees Hand Anaheim Big Win: Flames 4 – Ducks 5 (SO)

Call the 'referee ombudsmen' because there's something fishy about this one. The NHL should be embarrassed when referees make such unabated attempts to skew the outcome of games. Conspiracy theorists will giggle with glee that Gary Bettman's policy to prop up American...

Expected: Calgary 5 – Colorado 2 (9 GR)

The Flames put the brakes on a three game losing streak with a win against the lowly Colorado Avalanche who haven't won a game in 20. The last time Calgary lost three games in a row it was 2010. Now, every point counts. The Flames started the night in 9th place with...

Losers. Calgary 3 – Phoenix 4

Talk about folding the tent. Calgary played a pathetic game. The crowd was absent for 50 minutes (pin drop in the first period). The Flames had three defensive breakdowns that are uncharacteristic of this team that essentially put the nail in the coffin at the...

Flames Fail: Calgary 3 – Vancouver 4

First back to back regulation loss in over two months. That's really good. Really good at this point, unfortunately, doesn't cut it. I said after the Phoenix game that Calgary were going to lose tonight> I also suggest we don't want to wind up 8th because that would...

No Gas in the Tank: Calgary 0 – Phoenix 3

Calgary surprisingly has a number of 20+ goal scorers from unlikely players, ones you do'nt expect to score, Moss, Glencross, Jackman. There are games then where you get waht you expect, a Flames that can't do much other than whiff shots at the net. Calgary couldn't...

Calgary Flames 4 – Dallas Stars 3 (SO)

Calgary takes the season series against the Dallas for the first time in a long time. It wasn't easy either. If you shut off the TV after the first period then maybe you would've though the game was in the bag. But in a 60 minute hockey game anything goes and for...

10 With 30: Calgary 3 – Nashville 2

5th place in the NW division where all teams have games in hand, Calgary took two points in another crucial game vs the Nashville Predators who just a month ago were in 4th place--now 11th. But how's this for wild. Jarome Iginla scored his 30th goal of the season, his...

The Race Continues: Calgary 4 – Columbus 3

Chalk this one up as strange. Calgary needs to keep the wins going. Why? Everyone else in the Western Conference playoff rance are winning as well, only they have games in hand. If other teams keep winning we're literally out of a playoff spot rather than sitting in...

Top Line Charge: Calgary 6 – St Louis 0

A day after the NHL trade deadline where Calgary picked up a depth D man in Brett Carson and a depth fourth liner in Fredrik Modin, the Flames faced St Louis for the second in a mini home to home series. The Blues had four changes and you had the sense Calgary had the...

Trade Deadline Looms: Calgary 1 – St Louis 0

Every game from here on in is a playoff game. Every game we'll expect a win. It won't happen but it's practically necessary where every day the standings in the West Division fluctuate more than the Calgary weather. For the Flames' sake they were 9th going into the...

Flames Fail at Home: Calgary 3 – San Jose 4 (SO)

If the Flames have any chance to make the playoffs unfortunately the margin for error is ZERO. They failed tonight at home. Without steller goaltending the team sort of shut down. Yea, Some clutch scoring in the second gave them a one goal lead, but they shut down in...

Boston 3 – Calgary 1

You can't win em all, but if you're Calgary you were in such a deep deep hole that you can't afford to lose any. Calgary couldn't find their scoring touch despite a couple of opportunities. IT's teams like this that Calgary needs to beat in order to declare themselves...

Nik Hagman Placed on Waivers

Rumors are starting to come through Twitter that $3 million dollar man Nik Hagman has hit waivers and that the Maple Leafs have picked him up. Can't confirm as of yet, but this is a questionable move, one of the first from Feaster. Hagman has under performed, but not...
