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...

Win. Whopee. Calgary 3 – Dallas 2 (SO)

If there was a game the Flames deserved to win and did it was this one. Why is it that Calgary can beat the #2 team in the West, yet they fall to Minnesota twice? There's mathematical hope the team can make the playoffs, but they have to go about .700 the rest of the...

So… How ’bout them Flames…

I don’t remember the ’90’s Flames that well personally, but from what I do know I’m thinking the Flames team then started out the way this team today's team is. This year's Calgary Flames are like the guy that put you in the friend zone. A tease. (Yes I know...

More Garbage from Pathetic Flames: Calgary 1 – Minnesota 4

Supposedly a crucial game, the Flames exhibited why all non-Flames pundits laughed at the team before the season started. I prefer to laugh at Minnesota, but the team with a bunch of no names continually beats on the Flames. The Wild have the most boring hockey in the...

Embarrassment to Calgary: Flames 1 – Minnesota 3

You know who has the least amount of goals for in the West Division? The Minnesota Wild, by a wide margin. Tonight they potted three against the Flames. Calgary got zero. That just highlights the effort and capabilities of this hockey club--non-existent. Flames fans...

2 in a Row: Calgary 5 – Toronto 2

I'm a bit surprised that Toronto still has fans that come out and vehemently support the team in visiting cities even though they haven't won anything in, well, forever. The Leafs arrived, which was onerous enough but the pre-game attention was focused on the...

Start the Roll? Flames 3 – Blue Jackets 2 (OT)

Calgary has 7 games before December comes to a close and they are all against beatable teams. Trouble is Calgary can't string together wins. Maybe this energetic win will put the FLames on a roll? We can only hope because anything less pretty much means the season is...

Losing to Beatable Teams: Calgary 2 – Anaheim 3 (SO)

1 of a possible 4 points is all the Flames have to show for an abysmal California road-trip. Coming in they were, shockingly, four points out of a playoff spot. Now they are 7. This is perhaps the easiest schedule for the Flames, a chance to beat team and get some...

Calgary Flames: A 30 Game Rant

So here we are 30 games into the Flames regular season, under .500 at 12-15-3. Not exactly the start we were all promised, or expecting at the beginning of the season. So what exactly do we have here.
