Flames narrowly avoid shutout in 1st meeting with Canucks

The Calgary Flames really sucked tonight. If the 5-1 final score doesn’t tell the story well enough, here are a couple words that may help: Stink: v. (Slang) To be of an extremely low or bad quality. Crappy: adj. Inferior; worthless. Weak: adj. Lacking physical strength, energy, or vigor; feeble. I can’t really put into […]

Vancouver Canucks come to town

After almost 5 months of investigation, the Vancouver Police have finally recommended that more than 160 charges be laid for the June Stanley Cup Riots in Vancouver. As such, it is fitting that the Canucks-Flames rivalry will heat up again tonight. Don’t expect any burning police cars in Calgary, but you should expect to see […]

Calgary Flames hand Avalanche their first road loss of the season

The Calgary Flames used Roman Horak’s first NHL goal and Miikka Kiprusoff’s birthday as motivation to come back from a 1-0 deficit and hand Colorado their first road loss of the season.

Avalanche come to Calgary, look to keep winning on the road

The Colorado Avalanche are coming to town tonight and are looking to keep their unbeaten road streak going. Though the Avs have lost both of their two home games, they remain unbeaten (6-0-0) on the road this season. This is in stark contrast to the Flames who have only won 2 games so far and […]

Flames playoff hopes end on a high note

The Calgary Flames have been the masters of their own destiny since their losing skid ended in mid-December and they began an unbelievable push for the post-season. When everyone had them pegged as last-place finishers and called for the “blowing up” of the team, the Flames proved their heart and did what everyone said was […]

Flames celebrate St. Patrick’s Day with win over Avalanche

Jarome Iginla lead the Calgary Flames to an important win against the Colorado Avalanche tonight by scoring two goals and providing leadership to a team that has been in a slump.

Flames down Canucks in the Shootout

The Calgary Flames haven’t had much luck against the Vancouver Canucks this season, but that changed tonight. After a tight battle through 60 minutes, the game went to overtime where both teams failed to capitalize on powerplay attempts. A shootout was needed and Alex Tanguay ended up scoring the winner on a controversial goal that […]

Flames lose 6-0 to the Wild. This is not a typo.

The Hockey programming executives at TSN must be kicking themselves tonight. After broadcasting the Leafs-Rangers game (final score 7-0 Rangers), they featured the Flames-Wild game which ended in a similar score: 6-0 for the Wild. There was a lot of scoring on TV tonight, but it was pretty crappy hockey all around from both Canadian […]

Canucks almost get a shutout against the Flames

I suppose it was a fitting end to the night. On an evening that had few happy moments for Calgary Flames and Team Canada¬†hockey fans, it was one thing that we could cheer about. Tim Jackman ruined Roberto Luongo’s shutout bid with just over 10 seconds left in the game by scoring the Flames only […]
