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...

Flames Continue to Squander Points. Post Season Unlikely

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...

Solid 58 minute game nets loss

Calgary is the only team that can play against the Division's best team, lead with 1.5 minutes left in the game, and lose 4-2. Nobody else has the capacity to have a massive collapse like the Flames. Sitting out of a playoff spot, a win would vault them to second in...

Calgary Flames and Frogurt

Calgary came off their break and went back to their inconsistent ways. They head into the All-Star break now, but will face the Oilers tonight. Which team will show up? Who knows. I need to share this though, an awesome graphic by Reddit user Gaskal.

Flames Back to Old Ways: Calgary 1 – Buffalo 2 (OT)

Which Calgary Flames came out of the 5 day mandated break? The December Flames, that's who. That's a non-playoff hockey team in case you're wondering. That team is slow, constantly out battled, has a top line that takes the night off, and can't generate any sense of...

Six in a row. Flames defeat Panthers 4 – 2

Two weeks ago, with the Flames sitting near the bottom of the Western Conference, you had the sense that without an immediate win streak, the season would be lost before January was out. Well, throw in some good play, a dash of irate coach, and today the Flames site...

Flames 3 – Wild 2 (OT)

Two out of three periods dominant, asleep during the third, and another OT thriller. That about sums up the Flames 4th win in a row, the highest such win-streak of the season. Hat tip to Mike Smith. He's stellar on the road and shut the door tonight. Flames can brush...

Flames Stand Tall to Defeat Ducks Antics

Every team that plays the Ducks knows you gotta deal with the dirt. The dirtiest team in the NHL will try to gain their edge playing on the line. It works. It has against the Flames for years, perhaps decades, but you get the the sense the tide is turning. One day...
