Flames – Oilers Highlights

Sometimes a video can say more than a blogger ever can. In this case, 2 videos can pretty much tell the entire story of last night’s game. We got spanked. The first piece of evidence: Jordan Eberle’s first NHL goal… The second piece of evidence: MacIntyre vs Ivanans. TKO. I hope that’s the last time […]

Eberle comes out shooting. Oilers beat Flames

The Edmonton Oilers came out shooting in the season opener tonight and blanked the Flames 4-0 at Rexall Place. The Flames couldn’t get anything going and gave Oilers fans something to cheer about both on the scoreboard and on the ice. Gilbert Brule opened the scoring for the Oilers, but it was Jordan Eberle’s first […]

Opening Day

The Calgary Flames open the 2010-2011 regular season tonight by renewing the Battle of Alberta. The game starts at 8pm in Edmonton and will be broadcast on CBC. While your choices for watching the game are varied, it looks like THE place to be is Flames Central. In addition to watching the game on the […]

Perfect schmerfect. It means nothing

As we’ve heard from many Oilers and Canucks fans, a perfect record in the preseason means nothing. Sure, they’re whining a bit since we beat both of their teams twice, but they do have a point. Mark this day on your calendar. I’ve just agreed with Coilers and Cant-nucks fans. After beating the Oilers 5-2 […]

Oilers at Flames. Final game of the preseason tonight

The Flames host the Oilers at the ‘Dome tonight for their final game of the preseason. The Oilers will be looking to improve their preseason record, while the Flames hope to finish the 2010 preseason with a perfect 7-0 record. The Flames handed the Oilers their only preseason loss when they beat them 5-1 in […]

Hockey Day in Canada: BoA

It’s hockey day in Canada, and I’ve been enjoying our national game all day long. I put the skates on and shot some pucks at the outdoor rink at the park close to my house, and now it’s time to put on the Flames jersey and head downtown to prep for the Flames vs Oilers […]

Battle of Alberta #3 no Snoozer

Earlier this week I overheard someone say, “Do you think Iggy has finally woken up?” This question came on Wednesday after Jarome’s best game of the season when he scored a goal, added an assist and more importantly, lead his team to victory over the Columbus Blue Jackets. It was a thought that had also […]

Four and Oh. Go Flames Go.

Holy Cr@p! That’s a comeback that I’ll remember for a while! The Flames used some kind of magic tonight in Edmonton to come back from a 2-0 deficit, tie the game at 3-3 with 1.5 seconds left in the 3rd and then win it in the shootout. With the win the Flames go 4-0 to […]

Battle of Alberta v 2.0

How lucky are we?!! Two Alberta battles in 5 days! The Flames will head down the road to Edmonton again tonight to face their provincial rivals at Rexall Place. The Flames are riding a 3 game win streak while the Oilers are 1-1 to start the season. This is the first time that the Flames […]

The game will be streamed live on, and begins at 7:00pm and there are still tickets available. There will be a […]

Flames Drop 2 in Battle of Alberta

The Calgary Flames gave up the lead 2 times in 2 days to hand the Edmonton Oilers their 3rd and 4th straight wins to start the 2008-2009 season. With the losses, the Flames now sit at 1-3-1 and have started the season in a very lacklustre style that makes it hard to be a Flames […]

Flames Win Home Opener Against Oilers

Marcus Nilson scored on a rebound with less than a minute left in the 2nd period to win the the Calgary Flames’ home opener tonight. Dwayne Roloson stopped Stefan Yelle’s first shot on net, but left a huge rebound for Nilson, who made no mistake in scoring his first goal of the season. Alex Tanguay […]
