It’s Game Day. Flames at Senators

In the past (aka when the Flames and Senators were playing well) Calgary and Ottawa were notorious for having low-scoring, high energy games when they met each other on the ice. It was usually a goaltenders’ battle, and although the Senators always seemed to have a new goaltender standing in front of their net they […]

Canada-Russia and Flames-Canucks pre-game

It’s a double header tonight and it’s fixing to be a good one as two classic rivalries heat up tonight. Starting at 5:30pm, I’ll be ready. A few weeks ago @that_angela thought it would be a good idea for some Flames and Canucks fans (read Team Canada fans) to get together to watch the two […]

Dion Phaneuf comes to Calgary to face his old team

Riding a two-game winning streak and feeling like the world is their oyster again, Captain Dion Phaneuf and the Toronto Maple Leafs come to Calgary tonight to face the Flames. This will mark the first time that he will play as a visitor in the Saddledome since Dion Phaneuf was traded from the Flames to […]

Gameday: Flames vs. Capitals

The Washington Capitals (6-4-0) are in town and will face off against the Calgary Flames (6-4-0) tonight at the Scotiabank Saddledome. This is the first time the Caps have been to town in 2 years, and they will be looking to get back into the win column, just like the Flames. Both teams lost their […]

Game Day: Oilers at Flames

Nineteen days ago, the Edmonton Oilers and Calgary Flames opened the 2010-2011 regular season with a Battle of Alberta that left Oilers fans with a strong sense that their path back to the post-season would be paved with goals and shutouts. Backed by an unbeatable Nikolai Khabibulin, the Oilers capitalized on a Flames team that […]

Gameday: Flames host Sharks

The San Jose Sharks (3-2-1) swim into the Scotiabank Saddledome tonight for the first of four matchups with the Calgary Flames (4-3-0) this season. The Sharks are coming off a 6-1 win in Edmonton last night, and will be gunning for their 3rd consecutive win. The Flames will be looking to extend their winning streak […]

Game day: Oilers at Flames. Please, please, please, please!

It’s game day again and this time I’m sure I’m not the only fan who is nervous. That’s why I’m praying to the Hockey Gods that something happens inside the Flames dressing room. I’m hoping for some kind of magical switch to flick whereby Jarome Iginla miraculously believes that the start of November is actually […]

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 […]

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 […]

Game Day Flames vs Coyotes

The Calgary Flames take to the ice in the ‘Dome in 90 minutes time, and fans are looking for more big performances, not just from the young Flames, but also the top line of Iginla, Tanguay and Jokinen. The toast of the town so far this pre-season has been T.J. Brodie, who continues to impress […]

Bragging rights to #Flames fans

In a move that I don’t ever remember seeing in the NHL before (correct me if I’m wrong) the Flames played 2 games in one night against the Vancouver Canucks; one game in Calgary and one game in Vancouver. The Flames split their top 2 lines between the teams and chose to dress Miikka Kiprusoff […]
