Avalanche come to Calgary, look to keep winning on the road

The Colorado Avalanche are coming to town tonight and are looking to keep their unbeaten road streak going. Though the Avs have lost both of their two home games, they remain unbeaten (6-0-0) on the road this season. This is in stark contrast to the Flames who have only won 2 games so far and […]

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 […]

Final Game Plan: Smash Henik Sedin #ABS

The Calgary Flames play their last game of the season tonight in Vancouver, and there’s really only one thing that matters now: keep Henrik Sedin off the scoresheet. The Canucks pretty boy is in the race for the Art Ross Trophy, trailing Alexander Ovechkin by one point. They both have one game left, so it’s […]


November is Friendly to the Flames

I haven’t written anything since the blowout loss against Chicago last Saturday, but the Flames have been on a tear so it’s time for a little summary. The Flames played 5 games last week, taking 9 of 10 points and heading into Grey Cup Sunday on a seriously high note. Last Saturday, the Flames put […]

Flames 1 Win Away from Home-Ice in the Playoffs

Other than the fact that the Flames are back on a 1 game winning streak and now in sole possession of first place in the NW division, I can’t really take too much pleasure in a 4-1 win against the Los Angeles Kings tonight. Sure, the Flames regained a bit of their scoring touch. Sure, […]

Thank You Lowly Colorado…

…For knocking off the Canucks 4-1 tonight. I love how every sports broadcaster calls them “the lowly Colorado Avalanche” since they’re not making the playoffs. They do that to every team that is “mathematically out of the post season”. But lowly doesn’t mean they can’t stun the beloved hometown boys and *almost* shut them out… […]

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. […]


Roberto Luongo, Captain Canuck

I’m sure you all remember the photo of the 2007 Vancouver Canucks playoff team that were passed around the internet shortly after they made an early exit in after the 2nd round. It featured a photoshopped Canucks team photo that left one player in the middle of the bench all by himself. The player was […]

Flames Head to Playoffs on a Win

Calgary……7Vancouver…1 Jarome Iginla netted his 50th goal of the season as the Calgary flames rolled to a 7-1 victory in Vancouver for their final game of the season. Iginla double, and triple-shifted with almost every line on the team, and eventually got his 50th on a close-in shot. He added 2 assists to bring his […]

Avalanche Beat Flames in Overtime

Calgary…..2Colorado…3When are the Calgary Flames going to stop letting the Colorado Avalanche come back late in the game to steal points? With a 2-1 lead, and less than 5 minutes left in the game, the Calgary Flames self-distructed and handed 2 points to the Avalanche by letting them score to tie the game, and once […]

Another Win for the Flames in Vancouver

Calgary…..3Vancouver..2Seeing the Colorado Avalanche so close behind has scared the Calgary Flames into playing their best hockey of the season. Daymond Langkow had a goal and two assists, and Miikka Kiprusoff made 32 saves as the Flames moved closer to clinching a playoff spot with a 3-2 victory over the Vancouver Canucks on Saturday night. […]

Calgary Still Can’t Win on the Road

Calgary……1Vancouver..3 The Vancouver Canucks took a stand against Calgary, helped by the fact the Flames were playing on the road. Henrik Sedin put the Canucks ahead late in the second period and Brendan Morrison added an insurance goal 8:40 into the third to lift Vancouver to a 3-1 victory over the Flames that was viewed […]
