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...

A Great Evening for Hockey: Heritage Classic 2011

Calgary 4 - Montreal 0 It was an afternoon to remember. The City of Calgary yet again put on a great show, a spectacle that met the mysticism associated with outdoor NHL events. Before the puck even dropped it was the festivities that drove the show. Five for...

Heritage Classic 2011 Calgary vs. Montreal

It's almost here. The most anticipated non-playoff game in year's arrives in Calgary tomorrow. Puck drop 4PM. Weather a cool -8C. On the line, two crucial points for two NHL squads battling for their playoff lives. We'll be there. Follow our tweets @flamesstamps and...

Log Jam at 4th – Time to Get the Car Flags Out

And then there were FIVE at FOURTH. Check it out. I do'nt think I've ever seen this type of tie so late in the season for a spot so high. Four points separates 3rd from 10th. Scary. But it does mean one thing: if Calgary takes care of their own business they will make...

Happy Valentines Day! Here’s NINE Goals!

Calgary 9 - Colorado 1 Well, I do'nt think anybody expected this. The talk of the game before puck drop was the sudden announcement of Peter Foresberg's retirement (officially I guess this time). All the attention was on the iconic power forward, but it was Calgary...

Not enough gas in the tank: Calgary 2 – Canucks 4

Another hockey day in Canada ended with a thrilling game between two divisional rivals. Three games in four nights didn't really show, but a lack scoring touch sure did. With tonights loss the Flames end a fine run of points in the the last 12 games, no losses in the...

Too Many Make up calls: Anaheim 5 – Calgary 4

heartbreaking loss for the Flames who were two minutes from taking two points in a crucial game against an opponent with only one point more (with a couple games in hand) in the standings. This post will be made in point form to outline a few items about Calgary's...

Calgary 5 – Ottawa 2

Say it with me, TIM the "DESTROYER" JACKMAN! There was a time when the Flames could be down a goal or two and you knew all hope was lost. Nowadays, the Flames stick to the plan and can generally pull wins out of the hat. Granted, they are supposed to beat teams like...

Back to 8th: Calgary 3 – Chicago 1

And just like that, 1.5 months of winning and the Calgary Flames are back in the thick of things sitting in 8th place. At the end of December Calgary was sitting in 14th place and needed to be the best team from that point on in order to dream of making the playoffs....
