Worst Effort of the Season: Flames 1 – Devils 2

No wonder the 'Dome is 1/3 empty for home games, pathetic efforts like tonight. The Flames have been relying on stalwart goaltending and their third line to get wins (special teams have been special as of late too). But that's it. After that, the system and coaching...

Calgary Flames 4 – Colorado Avalanche 1

The Avs aren't very good, and Calgary's special teams are. Put those two together and it's an easy two points for the good guys. Here are a few highlights from tonight's game. Shut out for Brian Elliott, oh just kidding, Colorado scores with 1.30 left in the game....

Special Teams Are Special in Flames Win

Calgary 4 - Arizona 2 You are supposed to beat Arizona. I may not be easy but you're supposed to take those two points on the worst team in the league (maybe the worst franchise?). Calgary squeak out two points thanks largely to the play of their special teams. At the...

Flames Dropped at Home vs Lightning

The Calgary Flames came into tonight's game vs. their nemesis Tampa Bay Lightning (why does Florida have two teams? Anybody?) riding a six game winning streak. Two things were lost, the Flames winning streak, and their chances of every getting a day off in the future....

Calgary Flames Finally Serve Anaheim Ducks Massive Loss 8-3

This was actually a 7-1 blowout until the final 2 minutes. You knew the Flames' were due. A result years in the making, Calgary has spent seasons trying to get over the 'Duck Demons', consistently losing, and sometimes badly, to the bigger, tougher, talented Ducks....

Calgary 3 – Toronto 0

With this THIRD shut-out of the season, Chad Johnson back stopped the Flames to a convincing home victory against the refresh Toronto Maple Leafs. Coming off their longest road-swing of the season, the Flames took the lead early scoring twice in the first minute of...

Flames 3 – Detroit 2

In one of those rare days when both the Calgary Stampeders and Calgary Flames play, and win, the Flames did their part by sticking to their gameplan and pulling out a late game win thanks to the emerging second line lead by Mikael Backlund. Chad Johnson started his...

Flames 1 – Wild 0

A photo posted by Calgary Flames (@nhlflames) on Nov 15, 2016 at 8:10pm PST We've always known that the Minnesota Wild please boring hockey, that means a low scoring game, which maybe, just maybe, gives the Flames a chance, and all you need is a chance for 29th best...

Flames Lost Again – Dallas

No, the Flames aren't going to fire the coach. No, the team won't turn it around in time. No, the elite players aren't finding their game in time (lead by Gio).

California Swing – Flames 3 – SJ 2

The only saving grace for the inconsistent Flames' play is the fact most other Western Conference teams are struggling too. Identity is the key to this team, something they're still trying to find amidst a brand new system deployed by a brand new coaching staff....

Where are the Flames

Dropped again, 5-1 against Chicago, everyone single person is wondering where the Flames are, particularly the 'top line' that can't get going without a bonafide RW. What we know for sure, they aren't a playoff team. What we're curious about, is whether they can...

Flames Lose 3 – 1 Vs Caps – Post game in 3 points

The post game review in three bullet points. Dennis Wideman badly out of position on first goal. Fail Wideman. Fail coach for putting Wideman on top D line. No offensive 5v5 production from top line. Fail coach, albeit who are you going to put as a RW on that line?...
