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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Flames keep playoff hopes alive with win over Stars

The Calgary Flames playoff hopes keep sputtering along. As they have done for the past couple seasons, the Flames are leaving the drama right to the end. Tonight’s game was the “see” end of the see-saw that has been the Flames season… as in: “See! We are still alive.” But it gives some fans some […]

Rookie sensation Sven Baertschi put Calgary ahead 1-0 just 17 seconds into the game, and they never looked back as they fought their way to a 4-1 win over the Phoenix Coyotes, earning their 5th straight victory. Baertschi’s goal was his […]

Anaheim Ducks captain Ryan Getzlaf hadn’t scored in 17 games but managed to find the back of the Flames net with 46 seconds remaining in regulation to break a 2-2 tie and give the Ducks the win. The loss was Calgary’s 15th straight at the Honda Centre, dating back to a time when Anaheim’s team […]
