Flames robbed. The NHL owes us.

The photo above is not a goal celebration. Let’s be clear about that. Let’s also be honest with ourselves about this season. The fact that the Calgary Flames made it this far should make fans happy. In December the thought of the Flames making the playoffs was laughable. The only team that had fewer points […]

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. The Flames ended a 3-game losing streak which started with their loss to Vancouver last Saturday and moved back into 8th place in the […]

Blue Jackets vs Flames Highlights

The Calgary Flames might just have put the final nail in the Columbus Blue Jackets’ coffin last night. The Flames held off a late push by the Blue Jackets to hand them a 4-3 loss, moving Calgary up into 5th place in the west, while leaving Columbus 6 points out of the playoffs. The Flames […]

Flames lose to Sharks in shootout but gain one point

The fans at the Scotiabank Saddledome got their money’s worth tonight, but unfortunately the Flames couldn’t send them home happy. After taking a 3-2 lead over the San Jose Sharks into the third period they held off a flurry of offensive action from the visitors only to give up a late goal to Ryan Clowe. […]

Heritage Classic final score: Calgary 4, Montreal 0

After almost a year of hype, the 2011 NHL Heritage Classic is now a page in history. The game was a sellout, with 41,022 fans braving the elements to attend, and I’m happy to say that I was a part of it. From the moment my family and I started layering-up in our warm clothing […]

Flames win 3rd straight by beating Predators

The Calgary Flames winning streak keeps on rolling. Miikka Kiprusoff stopped 34 of 35 shots, and the Flames scored 3 times to beat the Nashville Predators and win their 3rd straight game. The game was one of the most complete games they’ve played all season, and they dominated the Preds for most of regulation. Curtis […]

Red Wings come back and beat Flames in shootout

The Calgary Flames played a good game tonight. When you combine that with a poor showing from the Detroit Red Wings, it makes for an interesting match, and the Flames almost pulled it off. Unfortunatetly for the Flames, they gave up a 4-2 lead and let the Red Wings back into a game that they […]

Phaneuf’s return to the Dome spoiled. Calgary Maple Flames win!

After all the media circus surrounding this game, I suppose it is appropriate that both of the captains were relatively silent and one of the teams broke down completely and allowed 3 goals in 57 seconds. While the Flames and Leafs have both proven that they are capable of letting in 3 goals so fast, […]

Flames win. Ho Hum.

The Calgary Flames actually won tonight, but I can’t say that I’m impressed. Sure, they jumped out to a 2-0 lead and and hung on long enough to force overtime. Sure Jarome Iginla nailed the overtime winner, but that’s not enough to make me a believer. Unfortunately just getting a win isn’t enough anymore. After […]
