Flames keep playoff hopes alive with win over Stars

The Calgary Flames playoff hopes keep sputtering along. As they have done for the past couple seasons, the Flames are leaving the drama right to the end. Tonight’s game was the “see” end of the see-saw that has been the Flames season… as in: “See! We are still alive.” But it gives some fans some […]

Calgary Flames burn Toronto Maple Leafs 5-1

Every time the Toronto Maple Leafs and Calgary Flames play some Leafs fan pipes up about how the Leafs “won” the Phaneuf trade. Every time I read this I laugh as it seems that Leafs Nation has not come to fully appreciate the defensive liability that is their Captain… the honourable Dion Phaneuf. Phaneuf was […]

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 - Jarome Iginla scores on Ray Emery

Blackhawks’ Alberta woes continue with 3-1 loss to Calgary Flames

The Chicago Blackhawks are not fans of Alberta hockey teams this year. One night after getting smoked 8-4 by the Edmonton Oilers, the Hawks came into Calgary looking to get back to their winning ways. Unfortunately for Chicago fans, Miikka Kiprusoff, Jarome Iginla, Olli Jokinen and Jay Bouwmeester weren’t having anything to do with that. […]

Flames can’t help Irving to his first win and lose 3-2 in the shootout

Stephen Weiss scored the only goal in the 4th round of the shootout to give the Florida Panthers a 3-2 shootout win over the visiting Calgary Flames tonight. The shootout loss foiled Leland Irving’s attempt to get his first win in his first NHL start, but he shouldn’t be upset with how he played. Sean […]

The Barney Report: Flames lose to Hurricanes in shootout

We were all hoping for it. We got one fist pump from Henrik Karlsson, but we needed 2 more for the win. Unfortunately for the Calgary Flames and their fans, that didn’t happen in Raleigh, North Carolina tonight as the Hurricanes survived a late rally from the Flames and won the game in the shootout. […]

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 acquire Kotalik and Higgins

I have to hand it to Darryl Sutter. He has single-handedly created the strangest 2 days in recent Flames history. After trading Dion Phaneuf to Toronto on Sunday morning, he then went to work on Olli Jokinen. The trade rumour that leaked last night was confirmed after tonight’s game as Flames GM Darryl Sutter announced […]

Jokinen and Prust for Kotalik and Higgins

So it looks like I chose the wrong afternoon/evening to go offline. I figured the drama of the day was done after the big Phaneuf trade, but I guess I underestimated Darryl Sutter. TSN is now reporting that the Flames will announce a trade with the New York Rangers that will send Jokinen and Prust […]

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. […]

Flames Make Biggest Splash on Trade Deadline Day

In past years, the Calgary Flames have been relatively quiet on Trade Deadline Day. This year was a different story as the Calgary Flames were front and centre in the media on the last day of trades for the 2008-2009 season. They made trades with the Phoenix Coyotes and the Colorado Avalanche to improve their […]
