Incosistencies: Calgary 1 – LA 2

Who's fault is it if a team's not prepared for games? The captain? The coach? The players? There are no answers to this pathetic hockey team. Either the Flames are really THIS bad, or they don't really care to show up to games. Coming into tonight's contest they were...

Marginal Win: Calgary 4 – Tampa Bay 2

The Calgary Flames currently site at the VERY bottom of the Western Division (but after this game they may be slightly higher than the Oilers). You'd think that this team is rebuilding, underpaid, or full of rookies.... Well that's not the case. The Flames have...

Meh: Flames 2 – Blackhawks 4

Yea, Flames lost again which puts them squarely at the bottom of the NW Division. That's right, for the first time in something like 15 years the Flames are the worst team in the West. It's not that they played a bad game. Most players showed up, but as with this team...

Calgary 3 – Minnestoa 2 (SO)

Two bottom basement dwellers in the NW division faced off tonight in Minnesota. Calgary is coming off a season worse 7-2 loss against rivals Vancouver. They had a chance to meet the Wild again for the second time in 5 days. The Flames won Monday, and they needed a...

Solid Home Win: Calgary 3 – Minnesota 0

Now THAT's more like it. Yes, the Flames should beat a team like Minnesota every time, but standings wise Calgary is at the bottom clawing their way back up. Back from a recent Eastern road trip the Flames were happy to play in front of the home team (although I have...

Road Trip Ends with Beating: Calgary 1 – Pittsburgh 4

The Calgary Flames concluded a lengthy Eastern road-trip with yet another loss. Another loss to keep this team in the basement of the West. This afternoon was perhaps their stiffest test and they failed miserably. The Flames looked like a minor league team against the...

Losers Again: Calgary 1 – NJ 2 (SO)

What do you get when you put two of the most boring hockey teams together in the same room? Boring hockey. Aptly summed up in this tweet: @DarrenZed I think the #Flames and #Devils are in the midst of setting back the #NHL a decade or so. Actually, the game wasn't...

Loss Again: calgary 1 – new york 2

Someone please tell me why Derek Boogaard has an NHL contract? His sole purpose is to injure other players. This is what's wrong with the NHL, they either intentionally or unintentionally breed violence. This has lead to a deterioration of the on ice product in many...

Refs Rob Flames of Win: Calgary 4 – Detroit 5 (OT)

How much money changes hands to fix NHL games do you think? The answer is not as much as NFL, college, or NBA. Nonetheless you have to really shake your head at officiating. Calgary as a whole got the royal screw job from officials today in both the NHL and the CFL....

Stomped: Calgary 7 – Chicago 2

The Calgary Flames needed this. Sitting at 14th sot just above the lowly Edmonton Oilers, the Flames were looking for momentum facing off against the reigning Stanley Cup winning Chicago Blackhawks. Calgary doesn't have a good history with beating the Hawks. Couple...

Flames Approaching Bottom Feeders: Calgary 1 – Phoenix 3

Let me break down this game the way I saw it. I actually thought the Flames played a decent game. In fact, they should've won but bad luck truly stymied the team. I'll get to my complaints about how horrific the officiating/diving was from the sad excuse of an NHL...

Jarome Iginla Trade Rumors

Let me chime in briefly on the Jarome Iginla trade rumors. Yes, he makes lots of cash, yes he hasn't been preforming. But NO. There's no trade that would work for Calgary--at least not now. Maybe when he's a bit older and the Flames are clearly never a cup contender...
