Iggy Back? Calgary 6 – Columbus 3

Ban Kerry Fraser From Calgary :P It's game's like these that you think the NHL is fixed like other sports (NBA). A perfectly normal game (if you're a Flames fan) went awry thanks to disastrous and weeeeaaak penalty calls. Couple that with the first period absence of...

Flames Bump Canucks: Calgary 5 – Vancouver 3

McGrattan with Gordie Howe Hat Trick The Flames came into Saturday night's tilt looking to stop the bleeding from a three game losing streak. The Canucks on the other hand sought to extend their winning streak to three. Calgary remembers the opening game when the...

Another Loss for Zero Offence Flames: Calgary 1 – Columbus 2

One day after a franchise debacle where the Flames dropped a 5-0 lead to loose 6-5 against the Blackhawks, Calgary pulled into Columbus looking for answers. Would they emerge from their monster fail? Or would they continue their downwards spiral landing in the dump of...

FAIL: Flames 5 – Blackhawks 6 (OT)

Didn't watch the game, but this is what we know. Flames scored 5 goals in four minutes in the first and then took the pedal off the gas to loose by one in overtime. Six unanswered goals, a huge discrepancy in shots against yet again, big name players unwilling to play...

Flames Bottom Out: Calgary 2 – Dallas 5

Wanted: One First Line For the first time in franchise history Calgary looked to go 5-0 at the start of the season. Coming off a win yesterday against Edmonton, it was the first back to back game of the season and the first look at McElhinney. Let's just say nothings...

Fans in Edmonton Boo Iginla: Calgary 4 – Edmonton 3 (SO)

Battle of Alberta part 2 Ends in Dramatic Fashion You know you're a pathetic city when no free agents want to come to your lame hockey town. You know your fans are of the stupid variety when they try to heckle the goalie with 'Kiprusoff' after he stones your team. You...

Nystrom with the Trick: Calgary 4 – Montreal 3

For the first time in 15 years the Calgary Flames sought to win their first three games of the season in a row. The second home game of the season also marked the first time Mike Cammalleri returned to the Calgary after moving to Montreal. The Flames drew first blood...

2009-2010 NHL Season Predictions

2009-2010 NHL season predictions are rolling out so I thought I'd jump on the bandwagon. Now, admittedly I'm not a huge hockey fan, as in I don't stay up and watch all the games on NHL Center Ice. As such, I rarely see games from the East Coast, mostly on purpose....

Theoren Fleury Released by Flames

It appears the storybook comeback of Theoren Fleury is over before it even began. The Flames gave the former Flames superstar a tryout, and despite posting respectable pre-season numbers, he didn't quite have what it took to make the team at the age of 41. More...

Phaneuf Hit Heard Around the League

But particularly by the New York Islanders who cry foul on every level. The team is miffed that he hit Okposo; they also don't like the fact he never dropped the gloves versus a career minor leaguer. Let's put the record straight. Phaneuf DID drop the gloves but the...

Pre-Season Game 2: Calgary 5 – NY Islanders 4 (SO)

Fleury Re-Debut WIN: Jay Bow Debut Game 2 of the pre-season and a sold out Saddledome came out to see one thing and one thing only: Theoren Fleury. Well maybe two, the first game of Jay Bow was tonight as well. Calgary played with a large contingent of vets including...

Pre-Season Opens With a Loss: Calgary 1 – Edmonton 4

The Calgary Flames pre-season opened for the 2009-2010 season at home against the provincial rivals. Although the game means little, and it's only pre-season, it's still our first post-game of the year, and an indicator that the regular season is only a couple of...

Main Training Camp Officially Opens

Excitement is now brewing for Calgary Flames fans as main camp officially opened a few hours ago. Many questions have yet to be answered this year for a Flames squad that looks different and is being coached different. The two huge questions are: 1) Who is going to...
