Craig Conroy Celebrates 1000 Games

Surprisingly the elder statesman Conroy hasn't hit 1000 games, whereas Langkow and Iginla have. Nonetheless, the achievement is a milestone in one's career, and it will even come with a silver stick presented by the Flames (not sure if that's tonight.) Here what's...

Calgary Takes BOA Version 3: Flames 5 – Oilers 4 (SO)

Well that was mostly unnecessary.... After Deadmonton fans realised their fortunes this season may not even translate into a playoff spot (let's face it, still not a good team), they came into Calgary to face the Flames for the third time in the first month of the new...

Flames Beat Up Sharks: 4-0

Well that was unexpected. The Flames, fresh off a 6-2 win against Columbus came back home to face the always tough San Jose Sharks. What most wondered was what kind of Flames team was going to show up. So far this season Calgary has been average at best, playing well...

Slightly Above Average: Flames 6 – Columbus 2

So far this season the Flames are performing slightly above average. Their 4-3 record would indicate the same thing. Their top players putting up big points every other game legitimizes the record. Tonight the top two lines decided to play and the Flames came out on...

Flames Fail: Lose in Detroit 4-2

You know why the Flames lost? Two reasons. 1) The PP sucks. 2) The top players suck. Everyone thought life was great after Calgary's great win over Edmonton. Truth be told, we're now six games into the new season and the top line (top players) have only produced in...

Road Win #1 in Music City: Calgary 1 – Nashville 0 (OT)

Watching the game today on Sportsnet Flames someone came in during the third period and said, "Slow Mo Johnson!" Suggesting the game was slow, in slowmo, and any other slow you want to talk about. Sure there were moments with some big hits, but really, Calgary played...

Character Win from Flames: 5-3 Over Oil

If there was any question about the effectiveness of the closed door meetings after the abysmal loss Calgary took against the Florida Panthers then look no further then tonight. In comeback fashion Calgary engineered 3 third period goals to take game 2 of this year's...

FAIL. Flames Just….Plain…Suck. Calgary 0 – Florida 3

Florida doesn't get much snow. In fact, they barely have a fan base. If Florida's top line hadn't amassed a point, only rare scoring chances, nobody would care. If management brought back old faces touting a new renewed opportunity for Stanley Cup glory, only Panther...

Flames Win Home Opener: Calgary 3 – LA 1

After an embarrassing blowout to start the NHL season, Calgary looked to rebound in their home opener against an LA team fresh off a win last night against Vancouver. Things didn't get off to a good start for the Flames. On Adam Pardy's first shift he threw his...

Hello Hockey Fans! Season Opener 2010-2011

Terrible: Calgary 0 - Oilers 4 Welcome back Flames Forum fans to another fantastic (we hope) season! The wait is finally over, and the anticipation has been killing all hockey fans around the globe. Today the puck dropped literally across the world with Carolina v....

How Have Injuries Changed the 2010-2011 Calgary Flames?

You might recall my bold prediction of 98 points for the Flames. I for one am a bit rosey when it comes to the potential of this year's Flames. Why? Simply put, too many players had an off season last year and a repeat would spell doom not only for the franchise but...

Calgary Flames 2010-2011 Season Prediction = 100 Points

Look Up Flames Fans, Way Up At risk of being labeled a 'homer' for completely biased home team predictions, let me say that the Calgary Flames are a much better team than the 2010-2009 team. They've added grit and scoring, have kept a solid D in tact, and boast one of...

Heritage Classic Jersey Unveiled

The Calgary Flames will play the Montreal Canadians at McMahon Staidum on February 20th, 2011. We haven't got our tickets yet, but we did get a glimpse of the jersey. It's supposed to be a take on the 1920's Calgary pro hockey team the Calgary Tigers. Instead we got a...

Flames Free Agency Frenzy Land Tanguay and Jokinen

The Calgary Flames did make some moves, but most fans will be sitting around rolling their eyes with the hands in the air in a show of surrender. Apparently in order to play for the Flames your Dad had to play for the Flames (Reinhart and Ramage in the draft) or you...
