Jarome Iginla has had a 500lb monkey on his back for the past few games. He shed that monkey at 8:33 of the third period tonight when he scored the 500th goal of his NHL career to lead the Calgary Flames to a 3-1 win over the visiting Minnesota Wild. While breaking in on the […]

Jarome Iginla scored his 497th career goal in the second period and added an assist on Curtis Glencross’ first period goal to lead the Flames to a 2-1 win against the Minnesota Wild tonight.

Stephen Weiss scored the only goal in the 4th round of the shootout to give the Florida Panthers a 3-2 shootout win over the visiting Calgary Flames tonight.

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 […]

Crazy Game Report: Flames beat Hurricanes 7-6. No really.

I can’t remember the last time I saw a hockey game that featured 13 goals. I also can’t remember the last time that an empty net goal was the game winner, especially when that empty netter gave the winning team a 3-goal lead. But such was the case in this crazy game as the Calgary […]

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 […]

Late penalties give Red Wings 5-3 win over Flames

Pavel Datsyuk and Valteri Filppula scored goals 1:14 apart to break a 3-3 tie and give the Detroit Red Wings a 5-3 win over the Calgary Flames tonight. All told, Detroit capitalized on 3 of their 4 powerplay opportunities, and the Flames have nobody to blame except themselves for taking stupid penalties late in the […]

Flames team effort puts up a 5-2 victory over red hot ‘Hawks

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.

The Calgary Flames jumped out to a 4-0 lead and Miikka Kiprusoff stopped 35 shots to give the Flames a 4-3 win in Denver tonight. Paul Byron opened the scoring for the Flames early in the first period on a hard-working drive to the net. He worked a nice give-and-go with Derek Smith, who had […]
