Flames slide into 9th place; Oilers dominate in the ‘Dome, 6-1 final

An 8th place Calgary Flames lose the much needed two points, as the youngsters from Oil-town dominate the 2nd — scoring four unanswered goals during a complete 2nd period breakdown by the Flames. The Flames did manage to open up the scoring, as Hannan nailed a shot down the slot minutes in, giving Kolanos his […]

Flames steal two points in 4-3 road win over San Jose

It was a busy night in the shark tank as milestones, Mcmeal jokes and a cogent team effort solidified Calgary Flames with a 4-3 win over San Jose last night. It was a dominant solid right from the first 20 minutes, as the Flames consistently played their offensive game — one that seems to be […]

Tough loss after All Star break, Flames breakdown in 3rd, lose 3-1 to Wings

With the game off to an emotional beginning (with a well-deserved Brad McCrimmon tribute), the Flames jump-start into the first period with a full tank of gas, ready to gain the 2 points they so desperately need. Howard, a northwest division goalie we’ve always struggled to score against, was an absolute wall in the first. […]

Cammalleri broke his silence in a tough 4-1 loss against L.A. at the ‘dome

The Flames have been a force to reckon with at the Scotiabank Saddledome winning their last eight straight at home. With only 3 points between the L.A.

Out with the underachieved, in with the hope-to-achieve. Welcome back Cammalleri, we needed you.

Let the fan flags fly as we bid farewell to René Bourque in exchange for Montreal Canadiens, and former-Flame’ Mike Cammalleri, goaltender Karri Ramo and a fifth-round draft pick in the 2012 draft. This all in exchange for the struggling number 17, last year’s fifth-round draft pick Patrick Holland and a second-round draft pick in […]

43 Kiprusoff stops not enough: Preds burn out Flames 2-1

Quality scoring chances add up, but are not enough for the Flames as Nashville finds a way to squeeze an extra past Kipper, in the 3rd, to make it a 2-1 win. The low-scoring was set by two battling Fins for a win, and with two outstanding butterfly saves before the first 10 minutes, it […]

Kipper shutout scores Calgary the first back-to-back win of the season

D-man Derek Smith scored his first-ever NHL goal in last minute of the 1st, leaving Nashville scrambling to match the Flames throughout 40 minutes. But time-and-time again Miikka shuts the door on all 26 — giving the star net-minder his first recorded shutout of the season. And though it was a quiet and conservative play […]

A solid, early effort by Miikka Kiprusoff gave the Calgary Flames a massive confidence boost in a 5-2 victory over the top team in the NHL tonight.
