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....

Point: Calgary 3 – LA 4 (SO)

Slow start, great finish. Calgary stormed back time in and time again to steal a point from a game that would see the winner take sole possession of the 8th and final playoff spot. There's a lot of hockey to be played and the single point is definitely better than...

The Nicest Guy in Hockey Retires

Its official. The announcement that we all knew was coming but didn’t want to come. Craig Conroy, number 24 for your Calgary Flames, has retired. Conroy is probably one of the nicest guys I have ever had the privilege of meeting. He is the only one that will ALWAYS...

Six? Calgary 4 – Atlanta 2

Who would have thought that the Calgary Flames would string together six straight wins and points in the past 11 games? Not me. Calgary still sits around 12th, but only FIVE points separates 12th from 4th. What a wild time to be in the West. I bet you didn't know that...

Five in a Row – 3 Way Tie: Calgary 3 – Nashville 2 (SO)

I'll be honest, I didn't think Calgary would pull this one out of the hat, but then again, a lot of people have been discrediting the Flames lately. Their cumulative age perhaps is their biggest asset as they go into games late trailing by a goal or two. Tonight,...

Four. Calgary Pulls to Within Two: Calgary 4 – St Louis 1

In the last 16 games the Calgary Flames have only lost three games in regulation. Maybe Darryl Sutter was right.... He did expect the team to turn around right when they did, given the return of all injured players, the team has pulled together some solid hockey since...

Three in a Row, Three Points Back: Flames 3 – Nashville 1

And just like that the Calgary Flames are in 11th spot only three points out of a playoff spot. Three wins in a row against pretty good teams and three points away from the 8th and final spot (they don't have games in hand mind you). Could this be the start of...

Calgary 4 – Vancouver 3 (SO)

The Flames have a knack of losing to crappy teams and beating the good ones. Think of it this way. At this point Calgary is 6 points out of a playoff spot (3 games). They've just beaten Dallas and Vancouver who sit atop the NW division, yet they couldn't beat...

Pathetic: Calgary 0 – Minnesota 6

Minnesota is a blight on the NHL. They probably have the lowest ratings because they are boring. But holy, they kick the stuffing out of the Flames every time they play each other. Pathetic. Only way to describe the 2010-11 version of the Flames. Most of these players...

Heritage Classic Preview: Calgary 4 – Montreal 5 (OT)

If the Heritage Classic on Feb. 20th is anything like this game then we're in for a great show--and a Flames win. Calgary needs to play .700 hockey these days to 'make the playoffs' so that means squandered chances and 'almosts' really mean nothing. Tonight they...
