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

The Calgary Flames took another step backwards putting together one of their worst performances of the season. This postgame report will have nothing in it about the game since it was terrible to watch. Curtis Joseph let in five goals and the Flames all around played...

Flames 1 – Dallas 2

Having only played two games since the All-Star break, the Calgary Flames were well rested against a Dallas team that played last night in Edmonton. The usual dead crowd did nothing to help along the home-team so it was about 10 minutes before things really got...

Flames 2 – Wild 1

The Flames yelled on to take 2 points in a gritty divisional game and reclaim top spot in the NW division before the all-star break. The top line was silenced for most of the game whereas Stephane Yelle scored his second in a row and helped on the eventual game-winner...

Don Wittman Passes Away

CBC Sports Commentator Dies Early this afternoon much heralded CBC sports commentator Don Wittman passed away. He has covered many sports including athletics, baseball, basketball, golf, and is most known as a commentator for the CBC's CFL coverage, on Hockey Night in...

Flames 6 – Kings 1

The Calgary Flames returned to their winning ways by taking their second in a row against a LA team that, in all honesty, they are expected to beat. At this point in the season the team has been consistent in one thing--inconsistency. A strong December was followed by...

Flames 3 – Wild 2 (SO)

Captain Jarome Iginla scored the game winning goal in the shootout (in a deke folks) to give the Flames their first win in 5 games. The Flames went into Minnesota having lost 4 straight; the old Flames of November started to emerge. Effortless games with poor defense,...

Curtis Joseph Signs With the Calgary Flames

The Calgary Flames goaltending tandem went from one of the most questionable to, at least on paper, one that appears solid. Curtis Joseph, a 40 year old netminder recently off a Spengler Cup victory, opted for the Flames to play out the remainder of the season. His...

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...

1st Place: Flames 5 – Kings 4

The Flames started and ended strong. Despite a third period set back that saw the LA Kings climb back into the game and take the lead with three goals, Calgary found a way to respond with three of their own to pull out the win. The top line dominated again and pulled...

Stole Two – Flames 3 – SJ 2 (OT)

Calgary arrived in San Jose late in the night to prepare for their second game in as many nights. The line-up would change only slightly with Primeau getting back in and Boyd sitting out (possibly to be sent down soon?) The Flames, despite their turnaround, came out...

Calgary Tops NY 4-3

It's not too often Eastern teams visit the Dome but the hometown fans had an opportunity to see the likes of Jagr, Gomez, and Shannahan. Calgary looked to roll on their two game win-streak at home before heading off on the road. It was the home team who managed to...

Flames Finally Beat Canucks 2-1

Calgary finally found a way to beat divisional rivals Vancouver at the 'Dome for the first time this season. In the fifth of eight games against the Canucks, Calgary needs to win the next three to tie the head-to-head record. Another low scoring affair saw Calgary...

Come From Behind Flames 5 – Ducks 3

Calgary landed home for a brief 3 game homestand looking to get back on track with winning ways. The Ducks were in town to play an important NW division game; both teams hovering around 8th place in the West. Lately, the Flames have been unable to put together solid...

Canucks 5 – Flames 3

The Calgary Flames failed again to move ahead in the NW division squandering more divisional points. Calgary's shotty goaltending and inability to take defensive assignments (three goals on second chances with Flames players standing around aimlessly--quitting on the...
