No Christmas Cheer – Flames Loose 4-1 Against Sharks

The Flames are playing like a NHL hockey club that has many things to learn, namely how to win on the road. There is zero secondary scoring to be accounted for, the 4th line is useless, and injuries continue to hurt the squad. Let's not make excuses, but the team...

Game 34 Against Colorado Cancelled

The Colorado Avalanche postponed Thursday night's game against the Calgary Flames, citing fan safety amid the worst snowstorm to hit Colorado in three years. No makeup date was immediately set. "We have been in close consultation with the National Hockey League and...

Flames Return with a Bang – Win 5-3 Over LA

Jamie Mac got his first win of the season with some timely offense. The back up netminder gave Kiprusoff a much needed night off by backstopping the Flames to a 5-3 win over lowly LA. Albeit, he wasn't spectacular in net, he did enough to get the W, his first of the...

Selanne NHL’s Poor Sport – Flames Lose 4-1

I thought Vancouver was bad, I thought Torres was bad, I thought McTavish was bad, I thought Edmonton was bad... No sir, the worst poor sport in the entire NHL is Teemu Selanne. Never have I seen such poor sportsmanship in a hockey player. I first took notice of...

Flames Forecheck Cashes in – 6-3 in Phoenix

Wow, a road win, and get this, with the Flames forecheck hard they dominate 5v5. What a concept! And guess what, some timely powerplay work contributed to the Flames win for a change. Albeit, it was Pheonix and not, well you know, a better team. With three regular...

Prust Sent Down – Brad Ference Called up

Just in time for the game against Phoenix. This means the Flames are getting Yelle back? tonight. Also bad news for the defense, Warrner, Zyuzin, and Hamrlik are probably all out. Warrener and Hamrlik out for a longer period of time IMO.

Flames Play Florida in pre-season Game in Saskatoon

Is it true that Saskatchewan is Flames territory? Maybe South SK, but hey, I'm cool with more Flames fans. I guess there's enough to warrant an exhibition game next season. The Calgary Flames will play in the City of Saskatoon one pre-season NHL game on Tuesday,...

Flames Beaten with Poor Road Effort – 3-1

The inability to convert on the power play has once again killed the Flames. Any team can easily defend the Flames' boring power play strategy which consists of pass around the perimeter and wait for the point shot. No wonder goals on the PP are few and far between....

Calgary Flames Set Home Wins Record

The 1st line remembered what happened a week ago and decided to take matters into their own hands. Jarome Iginla had a 4 point night taking in 2 assists and 2 goals to lead the Flames to a comfortable 5-2 victory of the Wild. Tanguay got the ball rolling after scoring...

Tomi Maki to Make NHL Debut

The Calgary Flames have recalled defensemen Mark Giordano and Richie Regehr and left wing Tomi Maki. They will replace Nilson, Warrener, and Zyuzin. Yelle is not ready to come back and the first two have groin problems. Giordano has appeared in five games for the...

Flames Win 5-3 Over Canucks

This game was a lot closer than it should have been. The Canucks managed to get to within 1 in the third but couldn't tie it up before Tanguay scored an empty netter. For some reason it's cool to step off the gas in the last 10 minutes of the game just to make things...

Iggy Pots 300 and 600 – Flames Loose 3-2 SO

Jarome Iginla (may he always be a Flame) scored in the second period, tying the game at 2 a piece, for his 300th goal and 600th point of his career. The referees made it their business to make their presence felt calling a whopping 18 penalties in the game. One can't...

Prust Recalled After Practice Injury

The Calgary Flames have recalled left wing Brandon Prust from Omaha. This is Prust’s second recall of the season. Apparently, Nilson was hurt in practice. Prust has appeared in 15 AHL games this season, scoring four goals and four assists for eight points and 50...

Hamrlik Pops Woody for Flames Win – 3-0 Over ‘Canes

I looked closely and I'm pretty sure I'm right--Hamrlik still uses a wood stick. And with that woodstick comes an enormous shot (why he doesn't shoot more often is beyond me (why Tanguay doesn't shoot more often is also beyond me)). Hamrlik took a one timer off a...

Flames Squeak Bye with 2-1 Win Over Jackets

All we needed was a horn, lights, a bounce off the goalie's mask, and a crossbar. That was the sequence of events for Kobasew who finally scored a funny goal to give Calgary a 2-1 win over Columbus.Calgary was down coming into the third, but Jarome Iginla scored early...
