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...

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...
