Flames steal two points in 4-3 road win over San Jose

It was a busy night in the shark tank as milestones, Mcmeal jokes and a cogent team effort solidified Calgary Flames with a 4-3 win over San Jose last night. It was a dominant solid right from the first 20 minutes, as the Flames consistently played their offensive game — one that seems to be […]

Calgary Flames lose 14th straight game in Anaheim

The Honda Center has not been a friendly place for the Flames for a long time.
