New-look Flames can’t hold off Capitals push

It’s a new season, with an almost brand new team. Sure, there are some old faces on the Flames roster, but there are a lot of young ‘uns on the list too. The inexperience of the team was evident tonight in the Flames 2013-2014 season opener, where they blew 3-0 and 4-1 leads to eventually […]

San Jose Sharks suck, help Calgary Flames to victory

No really, with the exception of a few shining moments, the Sharks did suck big time tonight. Their horrible play definitely helped the Calgary Flames to a 4-1 victory at home. The win was a great one for the team, and especially for Miikka Kiprusoff, who made his return to the ice after nursing an […]

Danny Taylor gets his first NHL win, Flames beat Canucks

Calgary Flames goaltender Danny Taylor has his first NHL win, and it couldn’t have come at a better time. The Plymouth, UK-born goaltender stopped 29 shots to help the Flames beat the Canucks 4-2, and in doing so, becomes only the 3rd UK-born goaltender to win an NHL game. Taylor had a lot of help […]

Flames explode late in 3rd for win over Coyotes

Oh boy! It’s a win streak. It seems like a long time since I’ve said that when speaking about the Flames, but it’s true, and it came in a dramatic fashion last night. Trailing the Phoenix Coyotes 4-3 with less 2 minutes to play in the 3rd period, it seemed that the Flames would end […]

Flames outscore Wild for 3-1 win at home

The Calgary Flames haven’t had a lot of mojo at home this season. It might be too early to say for sure, but that might have changed last night, after Matt Stajan lead the Flames with 2 goals in a 3-1 win over the visiting Minnesota Wild. Alex Tanguay scored a highlight reel goal early […]

Calgary 1988 Olympic torch

Flames light it up on 25th anniversary of 1988 Olympics

The Calgary Flames found their scoring touch on the 25th anniversary of the Opening Ceremonies of the 1988 Winter Olympics as they beat the Dallas Stars 7-4 at the Saddledome tonight. Mike Cammalleri scored his 200th career NHL goal into the empty-net with 1:26 remaining in the game to seal the win in a wild […]

Ducks outpace Flames in 5-4 win

The Calgary Flames are making improvements. That much is clear after last night’s game against the Anaheim Super Ducks. They still have a little way to go to earn their first win of the season though. Ryan Getzlaf, Saku Koivu and Daniel Winnik scored early in the first period to give the Ducks a 3-0 […]

Flames start off on the wrong foot

The first period of tonight’s game was enough to whip any Flames fan in to a frenzy. They came out fast, and strong and looking like a brand new team. For 20 minutes, they absolutely dominated the San Jose Sharks on both ends of the ice and ended the period with a 1-0 lead. It […]

Calgary Flames opening day roster

The Calgary Flames have made the final cuts and have announced the roster for their opening game on Sunday night. I’m happy to see the usual names in the roster, though there are a couple nice surprises… and a couple names I’d rather not see. After what seems like too long in the AHL, Leland […]

Brent Sutter is no longer the coach of the Calgary Flames

Calgary Flames General Manager, Jay Feaster, announced today that the Flames organization has come to a mutual agreement with Brent Sutter and he will no longer be the coach of the team moving forward.
