Home Win: Calgary 2 – Phoenix 1

Returning home for one game from a two game road-trip before heading back out for a season high six game road trip, the Calgary Flames were looking to do something they've been collecting on the road--a win. Their fortunes would turn in favour of two points but it...

Mental Lapse Killer to Flames: Calgary 2 – Anaheim 3 (SO)

Riding the success of their captain, the Calgary Flames pulled into Anaheim looking to win a building they've found little success over the years. Fans at home could only hope the team would take another step forward in their development towards adopting the new...

Road Win & Iginla Hat Trick: Calgary 5 – LA 2

Eight of the next nine games will be on the road, which may not be that bad since the Flames tend to win there. What they haven't been doing at home, or recently in games, is bring a killer instinct of 'firebrand' hockey (the words of coach Sutter) on a game by game...

Lundmark Recalled – Bourque on IR

The Calgary Flames will spend the next seven of eight games on the road, and not making the trip is team point getter Rene Borque. He was placed on the injured reserve and Jamie Lundmark was recalled from the AHL. No word on the injury before today's 2PM game against...

Out Everything: Calgary 1 – Chicago 7

Calgary Puts in Disgraceful Effort Again Outworked, outplayed, beat up, embarrassed, etc. I don't know what it is about Chicago but Calgary can't beat them. In EVERY SINGLE aspect of hockey the home team was outclassed. Before the game started it had all the markings...

First Place on the Line: Calgary 2 – Colorado 3

Calgary faced Colorado tonight at home after a three game road trip in an effort to extend their win streak. The hard fought battle went back and forth but Calgary fell short against the division leading Avalanche team. I didn't watch it so can't say much. If anybody...

Fast Pace As Flames Visit Laughs: Calgary 5 – Toronto 2

Calgary entered Toronto around 3:30 AM for the last game of their brief three game road swing out East. In fact, both teams were coming off back to back nights but only one team seemed to have energy. That would be the NHL's second worst hockey team--the Toronto Maple...

Road Wins Stop at Four: Calgary 1 – Buffalo 2 (SO)

The Calgary Flames entered Buffalo without a win in the past nine visits and in the middle of the a three game road-trip that will end tomorrow night in Toronto. Both teams started fast and were at each other early. Calgary scored first a minute in when the second...

Road Win: Calgary 1 – Montreal 0

The Calgary Flames embarked on a three game road trip starting tonight in Montreal. It's always fun to watch a game when to rival Canadian teams square off, and tonight was no exception. Playing without the suspended Curtis Glencross, the Flames were quick to...

Home Win: Calgary 3 – New York 1

The Calgary Flames did what the Calgary Stampeders couldn't tonight--win. The Stampeders came off a frustrating loss (if you're a fan) against the Roughriders to loose first place in the West Division. The Flames were looking to extend a win streak to three games with...

Flames Get Shot in the Arm: Calgary 3 – Dallas 2 (OT)

Coming off a disappointing loss at home, the Flames received a much needed shot in the arm in more ways than one. Firstly, the team went through a bag skate in practice two days ago. Players like Glencross and Iginla were singled out for the lack of production and...

Lazy Flames Lose Again: Calgary 1 – Detroit 3

21 days and only five games. That's very unusual for an NHL team. The homestand also means the Flames players got to spend three weeks in their own beds with the home distractions.... It also meant that the Flames had PLENTY of time to rest up and spend their pent up...

Fight for the Top: Calgary 2 – Colorado 3

Calgary is currently playing within a very favorable schedule rarely seen in a season with games every four days. That means lots of rest and chances to get the game plan together. For the most part the Flames did dominate 5v5 play, but it was the one on one battles...

Battle of Alberta Part 3: Calgary5 – Edmonton 2

Not even ten games into the regular season the Calgary Flames lined up against their provincial rivals for the third time, only this time on home ice. Both teams came into the game with exact same record, 6-2-1, Edmonton's two losses courtesy of the Flames. One team...
