HOCKEY! Flames Open Pre-Season With Loss

Calgary 3 - Boston 4 (SO) The Calgary Flames opened the 2018 pre-season in China facing the Boston Bruins. The Flames have brought their starting lineup, whereas the Bruins left half at home. Although Calgary outshot the Bruins throwing 40 pucks at Halak, they...

Summer Moves – Flames Add Firepower

Well free agency has come and gone (well technically it's still here), and the Calgary Flames made their splash getting arguably all of "their guys". Let's start off the list from top to bottom. The biggest move by far was the signing of James Neal. I like his game, I...

RIP – Calgary Flames 2017-2018 Year in Review

It was bad. Real bad. There was hardly anything good about it, in fact. Right out of the gate they stumbled, then they fumbled, then they kind of had life, and then they face planted....hard. Welcome to the year in review of the Calgary Flames 2017-2018. Now that the...

Flames Finally Win in Battle of AB Part 4

Do you remember the Young Guns era? That team was really bad. Like, really bad. The Flames since March (probably since February (probably since January)) have been WORSE then the Young Guns. In fact, they have been playing as the worst team in the NHL. Pretty terrible...

Flames Sporadic Play Nets BOA Win

The Flames haven't beaten the Oilers in a couple of years. Before that, there was a stretch of what seemed like 10 years that Calgary kept winning. But as of late, the Flames couldn't get up for the Battle of Alberta. Tonight it changed, most in part thanks to the...

At this point the Flames have to play about .800 hockey to get into the post-season. Ya. Not going to happen. Playing tough competition in Pittsburgh, here are a few key takeaways. The D tightened things up led by the Captain. They need to continue upping their game...

Gulutzan Running Pre-Season Experiments in Game 64

After putting together 3 straight wins, the Flames were back to their old ways coming up short and fizzling out in a must win game. every game from here on in is a must win given how tight the Pacific Division is, and how little the Flames did at trade deadline. With...

Mikael Backlund Signed for 6 years 5.35 AAV

If there's one thing Brad Treviling has done is put a solid lineup on paper. He also negotiates very well. The likes of Monahan, Gaudreau, and now Backlund, all would command top dollar on an open market, but play in Calgary for less. Backlund for one, he's taking a...

4 of 6 wins on the road

The Flames are a road team and continued to show their wares across the league visiting the Eastern seaboard in the most recent trip. Although Calgary won 4 of 6, what was even better was how they kept up with the league's best. There were mental break downs in their...

Flames Continue Winning Road Ways

Calgary 3 - NYI 2 Well it's be a while since the Flames pulled out a last minute victory hasn't it? Calgary continued their road pace with their 16th win as they travel along the US Eastern sea board. Tonight was a homecoming of sorts for Travis Hamonic, who returned...
