Atlanta 6 – Flames 4

Defence Falters - Playoffs Questionable Calgary may miss the playoffs, and four straight losses on this brief road trip could mean the end. What's worse, Calgary came into Atlanta and dominated the first period. It makes sense, considering the team had a slow start...

Flames 2 – Capitals 3

Special Teams Make the Difference The two MVP candidates faced each other in a rare meeting in Washington. The early game pitted Jarome Iginla against league the goal leader in the NHL Alex Ovechkin. Calgary sought to being their four game road-trip out east with a...

Iginla Scores #365 : Flames 7 – Blues 3

Jarome Iginla became the franchise leading goal-scoring leader with this 365th goal in the first period of the Flames’ 7-3 victory over the St. Louis Blues. Calgary's offense exploded as players snapped droughts and benefited from a little bit of luck as well. The...

Flames 1 – Blue Jackets 0

Miikka Kiprusoff recorded his second shutout of the season in a game that saw the Flames return to their old dirty tricks. By dirty tricks I mean the 'trick' they pull about talking how they'll play a great and hard fought game but really they pull out a junker....

Flames Fights Last Week

Parker v Godard 2008 [youtube:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KLWQr8jW8Aw] Feb 24-29 Flames Fights Phaneuf Beats Bertuzzi [youtube:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zzjwR6-9SCE] Vandermeer does well against Parros...

Nystrom Strip – Quad City Jersey Fun

Note to Flames, do your jersey giveaways like the Quad City Flames (AHL affiliate of the big club). Seriously, all these look entertaining. Too bad only like 400 people showed up. The highlight? And Eric Nystrom striptease, seriously....

Flames 3 – Coyotes 1

A complete game? Not quite. A better start? OH yea. Calgary came out big in the first period, taking to heart their coaches warning about their lackluster efforts in practice by putting together a better product in the opening frame. In Anaheim the first period was...

Flames 1 – Anaheim 3 – Corey Perry Still a Coward

Are the Ducks really THAT good? Sure they reaped the benefit of 'timely' un-retired players, but are they THAT dangerous? Admittedly, the team has a number of working parts, but man, if their goalie interference and instigators are called as per rule book then I can't...

New Design for FlamesForum Blog

It's here, can't you tell?! The old design has been around the time we launched in 2006. But why stick with the old when you can have something cool and unique like our new FlamesForum design? What do you think? Give us your thoughts by commenting on this post. Let us...

Flames 2 – Avalanche 3 (OT)

Chalk one up for the refs--again. Calgary succumbed to their repeated trips to the penalty, including a WEAK OT call against Iginla, by allowing two goals, one in the final frame and one in OT. Despite leading for almost 45 minutes Calgary dropped a much needed point...

The West Got Tougher – Calgary to make move?

The West just got tougher, and it's the top teams that bolstered their lineup. With a few hours before trading deadline the San Jose Sharks acquired top defencemen Brian Campbell from Buffalo for Steve Bernier and a first round draft pick. The Dallas stars greatly...

Flames 2 – Wild 1

Coming off a solid (although not 100% convincing) win against Detroit at home, Calgary had a chance to push closer to number 1 in the NW division. Coming into a usually hostile Minnesota building it was the visitors that came out flying. Calgary limited the shots for...

Road Trip Concludes – Flames Trade Deadline Looms

Calgary has come off their last game of a 5 game road-trip with six of a possible 10 points. Given the fact they squandered an easy two in LA and the environment at home amongst fans calling for blood, the Flames went .600 on the road trip. Things could be worse, but...

Calgary 3 : Dallas 2 – Road Trip Ends

Calgary arrived in Dallas at 4AM to finish their five game road swing. A win would help them salvage a road-trip with six overall points. Not so bad given the two game loss debacle early in the week. Last time these two teams met Calgary was embarrassed, actually...

Flames Acquire Vandermeer from Flyers

The Philadelphia Flyers have sent tough guy defenceman Jim Vandermeer to the Flames for a 2009 third round pick. Vandermeer, 27, has three goals, 15 points and 71 penalty minutes in 54 games this season with the Blackhawks and Flyers. He was originally signed as a...
