‘Nucks Beat Flames 3-2 in GM Place

I admit, I missed this game, but from what I hear and see on the official scoresheet is more vets playing and another lose. Kiprusoff is still refining his game, as are many of the vets. The defence is looking for continuity as they let 39 shots on Miikka. Hope for a...

Flames Dumped – 6-3 Loss to Sharks

The Sharks came into town and helped produce a largely entertaining game, that is until the third. The veterans of the Flames are really stepping up, skilles players are scoring, Amonte is still impressing, Iggy scored on a breakaway, Phanuef (not a vet) is...

Flames Take 4th Game Win From Edmonton

The Flames took game two of the home and home versus the Oilers in pre-season action at Rexall Place. Alex Tanguay showed flashes of what is soon to be a 5 million dollar campaign dominating the top line with Amonte. Tanguay had a power-play goal and an assist to lead...

Flames Boot Canucks 3-1 to Remain Undefeated

Who woulda thunk it? Jeff Friesen is a fighter, Daymond Langkow likes to drop the gloves with dudes twice his height, and Tony Amonte and score? Ok I'm kidding, kind of, but Friesen had two fights, Langkow held his own, and Amonte had the tying goal in a Flames...

Kobby Wears ‘A’, Hussy Back to Old Games

Chuck Kobasew wore the C during the lock out for the Lowell Monsters, tonight, he wore the 'A' for the big club. Perhaps a mini motivator from the Flames brass silently suggesting, "how about another 20+ goal season?" Kobasew didn't dissapoint. The line of Kobasew,...

Iginla Enters 2006-07 Season Skinnier Than Ever

This sounds like a tabloid piece but it isn't. Fans should prepare to see a smaller Iginla take to the ice come opening day. Rumours have it Iginla has streamlined his body by eating nothing but power bars stuffed with prime rib.... [That doesn't make any sense.]...
