Hawks Take Game 5

Ugh. What else can I say after the Flames came out and handed Chicago game 5 on a silver platter. Sure it would be a huge dis-respect to say that the Blackhawks didn’t earn the win in game 5… but Calgary pretty much laid down and said, “Here. We won’t really play defense, or hit […]

Its a Best of 3 Series Now

(Sports Network) – The Calgary Flames and Chicago Blackhawks will both be seeking an edge tonight, when the Hawks host a pivotal Game 5 in the best-of- seven Western Conference quarterfinal series at United Center. The series is tied at two games apiece and the home team has won every game so far in the […]

Havlat Goal in Overtime Stuns Flames

Mike Cammalleri and Martin Havlat had a good battle, but it was Martin Havlat who had the last word. And it was a noisy last word. After taking a hi-stick (that was really more of a punch in the face) from Cammalleri, Havlat scored a late 3rd period goal to tie the game and eventually […]

Welcome to the Playoffs!

I’d like to bid a hearty “Welcome to the Playoffs” to the 9 Calgary Flames players who will be making their first post-season appearance this spring. Now you’ll really know what the “C of Red” is all about, and with that knowledge comes the pressure of the 1 Million residents of the city of Calgary. […]

Playoff Race: What’s The Difference?

What’s the difference between 5 wins, anyway? The way the standings sit right now, for the Flames, the difference between 5 wins means missing the playoffs or winning the Northwest Division title. If that doesn’t seem right, allow me to explain. The only team that has secured a playoff spot as of today is Detroit. […]

Boogaard Suspended 5 Games for Elbow to the Head

I got back from vacation earlier this week and had a chance to watch the Wild-Flames game on Friday night. It was a great game to watch until just under 2 minutes left in 3rd period when Minnesota goon Derek Boogaard ran Flames winger Brandon Prust into the boards with an ‘elbow to the head’. […]

Flames vs. Blue Jackets

After 2 disappointing losses to teams that the Flames should have beat – on paper – they will play host to the Columbus Blue Jackets tonight at the Saddledome. Look for the Flames to come out with some vigor in this game as they seek to get back to their winning ways after losing 2 […]

Halfway Update

It’s been a while since I last posted, but I’ve got a good reason… since this is a hockey blog, I’ll save it for another time, since I’m sure you don’t really want to read about it… While I’ve been off doing my regular life thing since the end of December, the Flames have been […]

Kipper Saves a Breakaway

Ducks End Flames Win Streak With 3-2 Victory

Todd Bertuzzi scored a nifty 3rd period goal against his old team, but it wasn’t enough to keep the Flames win streak alive. Bertuzzi’s team leading 7th goal of the season brought the Calgary Flames within one goal of the Anaheim Ducks, but the Flames could not catch up to the Anaheim Ducks who held […]

Capitals Flames Hockey

Flames Earn Win #2, Beat Washington

Miikka Kiprusoff and the Calgary Flames held Russian sniper Alexander Ovechkin to one assist on the way to defeating the visiting Washington Capitals 2-1 tonight. The win is their 2nd of the season. Jarome Iginla scored his 2nd goal of the season, and Matthew Lombardi netted his first goal to win the game for the […]

Eastern Blog

I had the chance to watch the opening 2 games of the season this year. I say ‘chance’ because I am not always fortunate enough to get to watch each Flames game, either on TV or in person.I am not a season ticket holder, and I am lucky if I get to go to one […]
