Flames beat injury-ravaged Avalanche

The Calgary Flames turned down the suck for long enough to beat an injury-depleted Colorado Avalanche last night. I suppose I should be happy that they got the 2 points instead of giving them to a divisional rival, but it will take a lot more than this to make me happy again. Since their 7-2 […]

Six Goals Pushes Avalanche Past Flames

In a game that was all kinds of weird, the Calgary Flames gave up 3 different leads and two important points to the visiting Colorado Avalanche who defeated the Flames on a night that should have been a celebration. With Colorado goalie Craig Anderson out with a knee injury, the Flame should have rolled through […]

Oilers Flames Highlights

Highlights from the Edmonton Oilers vs. Calgary Flames on Tuesday, October 26, 2010. In the 3rd edition of the Battle of Alberta for the 2010-2011 season, the Flames jumped out to a 4-1 lead before backing off and letting the Oilers back into the game. It was an exciting game for fans, but it was […]

Flames hang on for OT win over Oilers

Brendan Morrison scored 2 goals, one on the powerplay and one short-handed, for the Flames tonight as they celebrated goaltender Miikka Kiprusoff’s 34th birthday with a win over the Edmonton Oilers. The Flames relied on their goaltender again tonight as they blew a 4-1 lead and needed the shootout to beat the Oilers at Scotiabank […]

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 […]

Flames bounce back with 5-3 win over Oilers

So this may sound like deja vu, but here it is. “The top line for the Calgary Flames silenced their critics with an offensive outburst tonight at the Saddledome. The Calgary Flames top trio of Jarome Iginla, Olli Jokinen Matt Stajan and Alex Tanguay combined for a total of 8 points as the Flames beat […]

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 […]

Flames – Oilers Highlights

Sometimes a video can say more than a blogger ever can. In this case, 2 videos can pretty much tell the entire story of last night’s game. We got spanked. The first piece of evidence: Jordan Eberle’s first NHL goal… The second piece of evidence: MacIntyre vs Ivanans. TKO. I hope that’s the last time […]

Eberle comes out shooting. Oilers beat Flames

The Edmonton Oilers came out shooting in the season opener tonight and blanked the Flames 4-0 at Rexall Place. The Flames couldn’t get anything going and gave Oilers fans something to cheer about both on the scoreboard and on the ice. Gilbert Brule opened the scoring for the Oilers, but it was Jordan Eberle’s first […]

Opening Day

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 […]

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 […]

Final Game Plan: Smash Henik Sedin #ABS

The Calgary Flames play their last game of the season tonight in Vancouver, and there’s really only one thing that matters now: keep Henrik Sedin off the scoresheet. The Canucks pretty boy is in the race for the Art Ross Trophy, trailing Alexander Ovechkin by one point. They both have one game left, so it’s […]
