Game 35: Flames host the Ottawa Senators

On the 23rd of December, Prime Minister Stephen Harper was present at the Pengrowth Saddledome to witness the performance of the Flames as they defeated the Anaheim Ducks 4-3. In what was an impressive win, the home team definitely displayed one of their best...

Come Back: Calgary 4 – Anaheim 3

Calgary scored two third period goals, from two Iginla assits, and Brett Sutter made his NHL debut and scored his frist goal to help Calgary capture two points. Notable downsides were the the minus efforts by Phaneuf yet again. Iginla was on the ice too for many goals...

Flames lose 3-2 in OT

The winning streak ends at two for the Flames as they lose 3-2 in over time against the Chicago Blackhawks. Something certainly seemed amiss in their performance as they stumbled on home ice. Despite the disappointing loss, congratulations are in place for the...

Game 34: Flames host the Anaheim Ducks

Congratulations and saluting the Captain Jarome Iginla for accomplishing his 800th career point in a 3-2 OT loss against the Chicago Blackhawks. Something certainly seemed amiss on Friday night’s performance as the Flames ended their winning streak on home ice. They...

Sundin Signs with Canucks

He had a better chance at the cup with NY, but Mats Sundin decided Vancouver was the place to hang out, and Vancouver has 10 million to blow (about 6 million now). The question is this: how will this affect the rest of the league, will it be a showdown as GM's pull...

Game 33: Flames host the Chicago Blackhawks

The Flames strike for two in a 3-2 win courtesy Todd Bertuzzi who scores in overtime to help his team mates end this road trip in a positive light. Alas it had been challenging to keep the Wilds on guard as Gaborik tied the game at the 15.17 mark of the third;...

Bertuzzi Beats: Calgary 3 – Minnesota 2 (OT)

Calgary continued their brief road-trip playing their second game in as many night versus their division rivals the Minnesota Wild. The same lineup road into St. Paul ready to play but started off with sluggish feet. We all know Minnesota is a terribly boring team...

Game 32: Flames visit the Wilds in Minnesota

The 3 game losing streak came to an end for the Flames in St. Louis as they defeated the Blues 6-3 in an “action packed” game that encompassed multiple goal scorers, a couple of two men disadvantages and conspicuous rivalry between the two teams. Despite the...

Iginla Rebounds: Calgary 6 – St. Louis 3

Calgary faced the prospect of losing four games straight facing the lowly and damaged St. Louis Blues on the road. Much discussion has been made regarding the play of the top players, Dion Phanuef, Kiprusoff, and of course the absence of a dominant Jarome Iginla. The...

Game 31: Flames on the road again to visit the Blues

Despite earning a point on Friday, the 3-2 (S/O) loss for the Flames had been disconcerting primarily because they had lost to the # 10th team in the Eastern conference division. More importantly they had not been defeated by the Panthers at the Saddledome since...

Stars MIA: Flames 2 – Panthers 3 (SO)

The Calgary Flames entered their first home game after a eastern road-swing hoping to prevent a three game lose streak. Unfortunately, in order to win, Calgary needs to have their stars show up. That means Dion Phaneuf, a defenceman, plays defence, and Jarome Iginla,...

Game 30: Flames host the Florida Panthers

In a 4-3OT loss last night, the Calgary Flames managed to challenge their counterparts and earned a point against them. Their efforts were well recognized as they out played their opponents most of the game, firing 32 shots at Ty Conklin to an extent that Babcock had...

Losers Again: Calgary 2 – Detroit 3 (OT)

The Calgary Flames landed in Detroit at 3:30 AM local time thanks to some ridiculous scheduling and bad weather. Thankfully, the Flames put in a valiant effort in a bid to regain top spot in the West Division. Coming off an inconsistent effort in Montreal, Calgary put...

Game 29: Flames meet the Red Wings in Detroit

It had been a disappointing 4-1 loss against the Montreal Canadiens, but despite the failure to bounce back, the Flames’ performance had been outstanding in terms of shots on goal – unfortunately, the puck always stopped at the doorstep and could not find its way...

Inconsistencies: Calgary 1 – Montreal 4

Calgary is in what used to be the toughest division in hockey. With Minnesota, Colorado, Edmonton, Vancouver, all mostly rebuilding, Calgary probably doesn't skate with the hardest in the league. As such you'd expect the Flames to be dominant in the West, and although...
