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...

Old Fashion Flames Hockey – 2-1 Win Over Oil

Flames Slump Continues – Loose Season Opener 3-1

The Flames picked up their play from game seven of last season, which isn't a good thing. A lacklustre effort turned into a 3-1 opening loss again the Oilers. The Fan 960 post game talked about how the Flames ran into the 'hot goalie' and played 'pretty well', I...

The Puck Drops Tonight! 2006-07 Season Begins!

The 2006-2007 season is here, finally! Now I can't say there's that much excitment as a year ago when the lock out happened, but Flames fans are definately pleased that we get another kick at the can this year with what many believe is the best team we've had in...

First CFL Replay Error – Stamps Loose Against Argos

Flamesforum is here for all Calgary sports and I thought we'd post some Stampeders info. The Stamps lost a boring game against Toronto that saw Grandpa Simpson--I mean Allen--make smart decisions to burn up the clock. I would like to make a few comments about the game...

‘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...
