Flames to Retire Vernon’s Jersey

The Calgary Flames will honour one of the greatest players in team history by retiring goaltender Mike VernonÂ’s number 30. Does he deserver it? I'd say so, '89 was the best year for the Flames and fans. Vernon spent 13 seasons of his 20 year NHL career in Calgary....

Back on Track? 5-2 Win Over Avs

What's this? Almost 40 shots, a powerplay that works, a penalty kill that still sucks (5 on 3), yep, two steps forward today. The Flames took advantage of their powerplays today scoring three times. Iginla started things off in the 1st period tipping in a Phanuef...

Flames Escape With Nothing – Lose Again 5-3 Against Ducks

Apparently the Flames just wanted a nice vacation. Right when the weather got tough the Flames went soft and hid in California. How else can you describe their weekend work? They didn't win, so they have nothing to show but a nice tan. It's also apparent that the...

Flames Pull Off Must Win – 4-1 Against Hawks

The Calgary Flames managed to beat a struggling Chicago team in the second of back to back games that saw the Flames lose yesterday in Edmonton. Tonight, Calgary repeated their hard nosed forechecking to slowly grind away the opposition. I was at this game and in all...

Flames Streak Ends – Loss to Oilers 2-1

The battle of Alberta finally got on track with the same old same old. Actually this time, it was pretty boring. For almost the entire game the Oilers had trouble answering to the Flames consistent forecheck, but in this league you actually have to score occasionally....

Win #5 – 3-0 Over St Louis

Things are slowly coming together, slowly. The Flames put together another 'almost' solid effort to steal 2 points from a St Louis team that looked like 2005's club. From puck drop the Flames dominated the opposition in the sold out 'Dome. It didn't take long for the...

Come from behind – Flames Beat Canucks 3-2

The Calgary Flames are on another November winning streak thanks to Matt Cooke.  "I didn't see him coming, he hits hard, and he got me good there," said Iginla, who challenged Cooke twice, but said he didn't have a problem with the hit. "It was clean, but it doesn't...

Back on Track – Flames Win 3-0 Against Anaheim

It's not the 7th game all over again, but we'll take it. The Calgary Flames snapped the unbeaten streak of the Anaheim Ducks with a solid 3-0 win. Miikka collected his 2nd shut out of the season, saving over 35 shots in a game that saw every Duck player crash the net....

The Tony Show – Calgary Wins 3-1 Against Stars

It was the Tony Amonte show tonight against the Stars. 2 posts and 2 goals were all Tony Amonte had to show for a nights work. Amonte lead the Flames to a 3-1 win over the Stars in a low scoring, high hitting, hardly any shots, affair. The Flames only managed to get...

Flames Finally Win Against St. Louis 3-2

The best start of the season finally, only 13 games in. The Flames went back to the bread and butter forecheck that has made them the team they are [were]. Lombardi opened the scoring in the first with a nice feed from Tanguay. But they weren't done there, Andrew...

Flames Drop Another – Worst Team in West? Loose 3-2

The Calgary Flames have dropped yet another contest, showing how their current play is worthy of the bottom basement dwellings in the West division. The Flames went back a few more steps by loosing 3-2 to Detroit in Detroit. When your team can't win a face off all...

Prust and Boyd Recalled – New Life Into Flames?

The Calgary Flames announced the recall of left wing Brandon Prust and center Dustin Boyd. It is the first NHL recall for both players. Prust and Boyd will join the Flames on their three-game road trip which begins Wednesday in Detroit. At least one will factor into...

Flames Drop Yet Another – Loose 4-2 to Caps

Poor defensively play continues to haunt the Calgary Flames. This team was once considered one of the top defensive teams touting one of the best front 6 D-men. That was then, this is now. The Calgary Flames dropped yet another home game staying in the basement of the...

Flames Loose Yet Again – 3-2 Against Nashville

The Flames were tested with a above average hockey team and stunk the joint out. Thank goodness Jarome showed up, but that was about it... Then again, how would I know? I didn't see the game, and I don't know many people who did since TV coverage was next to nil for...
