Flames Drop Yet Another – Loose 4-2 to Caps

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...

Flames Win 6-1 Against Coyotes

The Calgary Flames finally put it together--just kidding. One team was going to get their third win of the season, and lucky for us it was the Flames. This isn't to suggest the Flames dominated the Coyotes in every aspect of the game all game, but they did manage...

Bruins Squash Hapless Flames – 3-2

Sundin Scores Hat-Trick and 500th Goal in Win

Well first things first, I'm beginning to like the style of hockey of the new Maple Leafs. Albeit the referee's in tonights game were horriable (yes the last penalty on Tucker was a penalty, just as all the other bogus hooks were,) Mats Sundin stole the show by...

Typical Flames Win – 1-0 Over the Sens

Jarome leads by example, by missing an open net....but luckily it was with 20 seconds left. The Flames captain continues to lead his team trying to get things going by providing offensive flare and continuing his hard work ethic. In true Flames fashion, the PP didn't...

Calgary Flames Below Average – Loose 4-1 Against Sharks

The Calgary Flames were touted by many to win the cup, but quite frankly, they're currently one of the worst teams in the NHL. It appears the team is content with the '1 game on 1 game off'mentality as they were badly beaten by a team that is truly one of the league's...

I've said it from the start, the Flames will win the season series 6-2, however, with play like today, I may be wrong. The Calgary Flames got new coach Jim Playfair's first win in game two of the 2006-07 NHL season. The season opener at home was met with much fanfare...
