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

Stars MIA: Flames 2 – Panthers 3 (SO)

Game 28: Equipped to challenge the Montreal Canadiens?

The West meets the East again That’s the way…aha aha… I like it…….Stealing may not be allowed, but it was okay to do so yesterday. A slow but steady start gets the required results that the Key behind the bench had long intended. Patience was the key to...

Sloppy Seconds for Calgary: Flames 1 – Stars 3

Sean Avery, given undue attention by local media regarding comments he made earlier in the year regarding the 'boring Mr. Iginla', was suspended before he could even face the wrath of the Flames. The NHL suspended Avery (Dallas would have if they hadn't) for comments...

Flames New Third Jersey Leaked?

We apologize for being so late with this, but one user saw this posted on NHL.com No word on its authenticity. It's better than the Flames horse IMO, but then again, it's just a sweater....
