Flames 2 – Phoenix 3 (OT)

Calgary returned to action after a disappointing three game series against the Colorado Avalanche where the Flames only managed to collect 2 of 6 points. The NW division will leave the Flames in the dust if they don't start winning, and Phoenix is beatable team to do...

Flames 3 – Colorado 4

Avalanche Work Harder - Calgary Chickens Without Godard But hey, Bettman would prefer strong US markets than clean hockey. Colorado continues to show why they are quickly becoming the dirtiest team NHL. Vannannen wasn't even fined for his brutal hit on Moss, nor have...

Calgary 5 – Colorado 2

Calgary Chips Away for Home Win Jim Playfair apparently like to bench one of the leagues hottest players. In fact, even in tonight's game, Kristian Huselius started the game on the 4th line. However, this didn't stop him from making an impact. Huselius had two gaols...

Calgary 5 – Colorado 7

Calgary Blows Another Lead It's becoming a regular catch phrase in the Flames lingo, 'they were outworked', only this time it was in their own building. Calgary started the game with a nice 2-0 lead but collapsed late (with a minute left) in all three periods. For...

Flames 4 – Atlanta 1

Flames Bounce Back Winning All the Battles After a 7-4 drubbing two days ago in Detroit (should have been 13-0), the Calgary Flames were looking for revenge, or at least to right the ship. The game was a later start to accommodate an Edmonton game on TV (they lost...

Flames Embarrassed – Loose 7-4 to Detroit

Flames Play Worst Game of the Season The score did not depict how this game truly transpired. It should really really read 6-1, and realistically read 12-1 had it not been for some goaltending. Calgary played by far their worst game of the season. Over 50 shots were...

Flames Loose Again to Sabers 3-2 (SO)

The Flames entered one of the toughest buildings in the league to face the Sabres who are the second best team in the NHL. There were times when you were holding onto your seat and Buffalo danced around Calgary defencemen, but the Flames also had their odd-man...

Flames Take Another Day Off – Loose 2-1 Late

Road Trip Begins With Another Bad Loss Calgary is notorious on the road, notoriously bad. Another slow start at this game almost put them out of the running early. A lengthly 5v3 was the biggest event, for Columbus, in period one. But guess who, Mr. Noodles Mclennan...

30 Raises to Rafters – Flames Honour Vernon

Calgary Flames Honour Mike Vernon - Loose Boring Game The ceremony was a tearjerker, lasted almost 60 minutes, had chants of Vernon!, Theo Fleury, and ended with a 'YAAAAAAAA BABY!' and this: We salute you Mikey! And now back to our regular scheduled program. Period...

FlamesForum Returns After Brief Downtime

FlamesForum Moves Web Servers Some of you may have noticed the past week posts were down and the forum was down. During the weekend the team at Flames forum had to move our servers to better accommodate the growing need of our users. We are happy to report that...

Flames Beat Canucks 4-3

Flames take first place in NW division with quality win. It was a hard fought battle from puck drop, but the Flames dominated the latest installment of the top NW division teams. Vancouver had moments in the third where they looked dangerous, but for the most part,...

Conroy 1 – Kings 0 – Flames Win 4-1

It was the first game for Craig Conroy and the new Calgary Flames. I thought I told Kerry Fraser never to come back after Game 6 of 2004. You think I forget Kerry? No way, if I was at the game I would have booed you every time you touched the puck. Of course Kerry and...

Conroy Back in Calgary – Sutter bites Bullet

http://tsn.ca/nhl/news_story/?ID=194096&hubname= Craig Conroy is back, obviously to bolster our centermen. This is an interesting move as Langkow has been producing well on the 1st line, Lombardi is flash on the second, and Yelle on the third. What does this mean for...

Flame Crappy Road Woes Continue – Lose 4-3 in Chicago

The Calgary Flames should have never been in this game, but then again, they should have never lost. Kiprusoff was the best player in the game and stole another point for the Flames. The rest of the team could pick up their game considerably. On this particular night,...
