Flames Beaten Again: Calgary 1 – Minnesota 2 (SO)

The Calgary Flames, against another team not making the playoffs and without 6 of their starters and playing their third string goalie, got embarrassed at home on 'fan appreciation' night. Low scoring with no scoring in the shoot-out (Iginla now 0-4 this year). Thanks...

Curtains for the Golfing Calgary Flames

It's all done. Tonight's loss against SJ and Colorado's impending win, has put the nail in the coffin for the Flames' playoff chances. The league's NUMBER ONE underperforming NHL team won't make the playoffs. The team will break for summer early, look at the...

Flames Choke, Hurts Playoff Chances: Calgary 1 – Chicago 4

There's a reason why the Flames will never win the Cup--they aren't a good hockey team. Yes, they are almost playing against the salary cap (the max), but inreality they are overpaid to under perform. But don't you think the Flames should AT LEAST make the playoffs?...

There’s Still Hope: Calgary 2 – Colorado 1

It comes down to this....well actually the last five games are all 'it comes down to this' games. Tonight was particularly important because Calgary was playing the Avalanche who were two points ahead of the FLames holding the 8th and final playoff spot. A win would...

Flames 2 – Phoenix 1

Calgary seems to wanna play hardcore hockey at the tail end of the season. Who would expect that the Flames would be where they are now, in 9th place looking at a glimmer of hope to make the playoffs. They wouldn't be in this place if they played CONSISTENT hockey....

Jim playfair Goes Hulk Hogan/Incredible Hulk

We all hate stupid refs, turns out so does Jim Playfair. Props to him for his wicked rendition of Hulk Hogan. Terrible, terrible call by the official. Too bad the Flames don't have the same passion (I wonder if he replaced those $200 sticks?!)...

Flames 5 – Washington 3

*Flames need to win all six of their last six to make the playoffs* I still think there's no hope, but mathematically there is. In true Flames fashion the team showed up for 2/3 of the game today and thankfully scored enough goals in the first period to stave off a...

Flames Garbage :rolleyes: Calgary 3 – Minnesota 4

The Calgary Flames need to win 9 of their last 10 to make the playoffs. It confuses why million dollar hockey players can't wake up in time for an afternoon game. Rene Bourque in particular, even though he's been playing soft since his huge contract extension, was...

Giant Win: Flames 4 – Sharks 3

The good guys came home and beat a team that they may very well face in the first round--assuming they make it. Calgary needs to win 9 of their final 11 to make the playoffs. The fourth line chimed in for a couple as Calgary stomped on the Sharks. San Jose tried to...

Pathetic Effort Sinks Flames: Calgary 1 – Detroit 2

A goal with 1 minute left with FOUR Flames players standing around doing nothing. The game tonight was the reverse of last night's tussle loss against Vancouver. Tonight Calgary showed up in the first period but shut it down for the other two. They were outworked,...

Flames 1 – Canucks 3

You'd think being one point out of a playoff spot would be enough to motivate the Flames.... But no, they had a lazy start in a crucial divisional game against their rivals. The top line in particular was terrible in the first period going -2. That pretty much sums up...

Calgary Beats Senator Divers: Calgary 2 – Ottawa 0

Between the Predators and Red Wings, The Calgary Flames by far have the hardest schedule coming down the stretch run. It's a good thing they're playing some of their better hockey of the year. Coming off a crucial win against the Wings on Tuesday, Calgary sits in...
