Flames 3 – Kings 6

Yes fans, the score is correct. Calgary lost against one of the worst teams in the NHL. Should you be surprised? Probably not, the team has been playing below average for almost a month now. Is there cause for concern? I'd say so. With a talented club and a coach...

Flames 4 – Sharks 3 (OT)

Flames 4 – Coyotes 3 (SO)

They didn't deserve it. There I said it. Quite frankly, if it wasn't for a last second goal with 7 seconds left in the game Flames fans would be crying for blood. The reality is the team played marginally better than they have in the last couple games and would be...

Flames 0 – Oilers 5

Flames 1 – Dallas 2

Flames 2 – Wild 1

Flames 1 – Oilers 2

The battle of Alberta was re-kindles in Edmonton on a rare Sunday evening game between the two provincial rivals. Unfortunately for Calgary, the same issues that have plagued the team since day 1 cost them two points. The inability to clear the zone successfully along...
