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...

Snoozefest or is it?: Calgary 2 – Toronto 1 (SO)

This is going to be short. We just witnessed possibly the most boring game of the year. I actually fell asleep in the second period and didn't miss anything. (this is how I started writing this with about 20 seconds left in the game). Then Kotalik took a stupid...

Rolled in Raleigh: Calgary 5 – Carolina 6 (SO)

I'm going to do this post-game in point form cause frankly I'm too lazy to write anything coherent about a team that shows glimpses of competence but does more than enough to bury any hope of making the post-season. Sad since we have HALF the season left, yet the...

More Ways to Lose: Calgary 4 – Detroit 5 (SO)

Just when you thought it couldn't get anymore sad this happens. Calgary played a pretty solid game, but little elements of their game creeped up to haunt them. Most notably, the inability to finish scoring chances. On the flip side, one thing you rarely hear said is...

Another Meh. Calgary 1 – Vancouver 3

When the hippies from Vancouver started chanting 'Calgary sucks' there wasn't much you could do. The Flames suck, it's not even funny anymore. The Calgary Flames don't even put up a fight to make rivalries interesting. For me at least, tonight was the first time I...

Another Fail: Calgary 2 – New York Islanders 5

Calgarians know one thing: the Flames NHL hockey team is an embarrassment to the city. Coming off a four game win streak the team showed promise to just maybe claw back into the playoff race by February. The problem? Calgary can't beat bottom basement dwellers, we're...

Calgary Flames GM Darryl Sutter Resigns

No, not re-signs, Darry Sutter has answered all Christmas wishes a couple days late by resigning from his position as GM of the Calgary Flames. Sutter triumphantly came to the city in late 2002 and took the Flames to the Cup final the following. From there it was all...
