Flames outscore Wild for 3-1 win at home

The Calgary Flames haven’t had a lot of mojo at home this season. It might be too early to say for sure, but that might have changed last night, after Matt Stajan lead the Flames with 2 goals in a 3-1 win over the visiting Minnesota Wild. Alex Tanguay scored a highlight reel goal early […]

Jarome Iginla's 500th NHL Goal.

Jarome Iginla’s 500th goal leads Flames to 3-1 win over Wild

Jarome Iginla has had a 500lb monkey on his back for the past few games. He shed that monkey at 8:33 of the third period tonight when he scored the 500th goal of his NHL career to lead the Calgary Flames to a 3-1 win over the visiting Minnesota Wild. While breaking in on the […]

Calgary Flames- Jarome Iginla, Scott Hannan, Derek Smith, Olli Jokinen, Curtis Glencross

Flames outlast Wild for 2-1 win at the Saddledome

Jarome Iginla scored his 497th career goal in the second period and added an assist on Curtis Glencross’ first period goal to lead the Flames to a 2-1 win against the Minnesota Wild tonight. It seems that Iggy likes playing the Wild as he has scored 33 career goals against the Wild, more than any […]

Flames lose 6-0 to the Wild. This is not a typo.

The Hockey programming executives at TSN must be kicking themselves tonight. After broadcasting the Leafs-Rangers game (final score 7-0 Rangers), they featured the Flames-Wild game which ended in a similar score: 6-0 for the Wild. There was a lot of scoring on TV tonight, but it was pretty crappy hockey all around from both Canadian […]

Flames Back in 5th After Shutout in Minnesota

After briefly regaining 3rd place in the Western Conference with a 2-1 win in Dallas, the Calgary Flames find themselves back in 5th place after being shutout 4-0 in Minnesota last night. Due to ‘cap space issues’ the flames iced a roster of 16 players, minus some big names. Adrian Aucoin was out of the […]

Flames Win 3-2 Over Minnesota

It looks like Calgary Flames fans have a new least-favourite referee in the NHL. By disallowing 2 Flames powerplay goals within 60 seconds, Eric Furlatt did a lot to move beyond Kerry Fraser as my #1 most-hated referee when the Flames are on the ice. Furlatt waived off the first goal, a shot from the […]

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 Hand Wild Their First Loss of the Season

Calgary……5Minnesota…3 Alex Tanguay has finally stepped up and scored, helping the Calgary Flames give the Minnesota Wild their first loss of the regular season. Tanguay’s first goal of the season might have been an easy one, but it tied the game at 3-3 nonetheless. His 2nd goal of the night put the Calgary Flames ahead […]

Flames Keep Streak Going in Minnesota

Calgary….4Minnesota..2Jarome Iginla and the Calgary Flames have found some consistency down the stretch, and there’s no better point in the season for it. Iginla scored his first hat trick of the season to move Calgary closer to clinching the final playoff spot in the Western Conference, and the Flames beat the Minnesota Wild 4-2 on […]

Flames Tighten Grip on 8th Spot

Calgary…..1Minnesota…0Goaltenders normally don’t like to talk about rebounds, but this was a good one for Miikka Kiprusoff. He was roundly criticized the last time he faced the Minnesota Wild, giving up four goals on 26 shots in Calgary’s 4-2 loss on March 17, and didn’t have to wait long to redeem himself. Kiprusoff was perfect […]

Flames Tame the Wild

Calgary……5Minnesota…2 Jarome Iginla was at his best against Minnesota, and the Wild were no match for the Calgary Flames captain. Iginla had two goals and two assists, tying a career high with four points, and the Flames earned a franchise-record 10th straight home victory by beating the Wild 5-2 Tuesday night. “In the standings, it […]
