Flames Clinch Playoff Spot

Not from what they've done but from what someone else has done. The Calgary Flames have clinched their fourth consecutive playoff birth after a Vancouver loss. The news is bittersweet as recently came off a 3-1 loss to the division rivals and leaders Minnesota Wild....

Stomped Again: Flames 1 – Wild 3

Calgary played a regular game, nothing out of the ordinary, good grit, generally stuck to the system, but they just couldn't match the Minnesota Wild. That's right, the Flames can't handle the Wild, they were overwhelmed, didn't have answers, hardly pushed, and were...

Note to Flames for Saturday: Run Luongo

Crash the crease, you'd think they'd get the message. Throw the top goalie off his game just as the opposition tries to injure you goalie. Tit for tat, and guess what, Anaheim won the cup last year doing it, Vancouver did it against the Flames Sunday, Calgary needs to...

Terrible Again – Flames 2 – Canucks 6

Playoffs in Doubt - Countless Lucky Bounces Give Nucks the Wing This was supposed to be the game that the Flames would win, they are on the every other game plan you know. Turns out, half of it was true. On one hand the Flames had their typical quick...

Inadequate – Flames Loose Again 2-1

Inadequate. That's the only way to sum it up. One lucky goal by Matthew Lombardi made the score somewhat respectable, but at the end of the day, and this late in the season, Calgary stunk out the joint in the final home date of 2008. The Edmonton Oilers, fraught with...

FlamesForum Closes Gallery (For Now)

FlamesForum management has closed the FlamesForum gallery due to spam issues. We had a ton of pictures and enjoyed the traffic we received, but at the end of the day we wanted more fan pictures and the system we had wasn't the best to facilitate this. Plus, Coppermine...

Flames 3 – Canucks 2

The NW division pre-playoff race is in full swing and Calgary is 2-1 in the series. Tonight, things looked bleak at home. Two goals in less than 20 seconds in the first and being outshot 20-4--things looked bleak at home. Calgary did their usual no-show in the first...

Flames Fights Last Week: Mar 17-24

Some unusual characters dropped the gloves but also the usual suspects. Let us begin (and include the Minnesota game as well). Sarich draws with Fedoruk [youtube:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X8hG9mOMYq0] Vandermeer takes some punches against Simon...

Flames Scoreless Again – Flames 0 – Avalanche 2

What do you get with a team that is in desperate need for some additional scoring other than Iginla? A shutout loss of course. Bad discipline and zero scoring or continuity with line combos yet again caught Calgary and handed them their loss in a crucial NW division...

Iginla Scores Hatrick: Flames 5 – Wild 4

There are few teams that stand up against the goons that the Minnesota Wild have stacked their team with. Ultimately the likes of Fedoruk, Boogaard, and Simon may contribute to the demise of the team (with only three playable lines), but in the meantime the Calgary...

Flames 2 – Avalanche 1

And so it begins. The Calgary Flames are faced with their last nine games against divisional opponents. They started tonight with the first of four at home and then will leave to hit the road for the last 5. The entire season is dependent on these games. Coming off an...

Columbus 3 – calgary 0

Flames Play Another Terrible Game Posted in the forum by Anar: It's crunch time and as teams get better Calgary gets progressively worse. A disappointing road trip for the Calgary Flames ends with a 3-0 shutout to the Columbus Blue Jackets leaving the Flames two...

Flames 4 – Blackhawks 2

The Northwest Division is one of the tightest races for the playoffs in the NHL. With two points separating four teams, Calgary began their four game roadtrip in the first place but are now teetering on the edge of a playoff position. After two disappointing losses in...
