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 […]

Leafs host Flames tonight

Jarome Iginla and the Calgary Flames are in Toronto tonight for a match-up with Dion Phaneuf and the Toronto Maple Leafs. While both teams are looking for two points, the story of a Phaneuf-Iggy matchup will always come down to pride and ego. The Leafs are still unbeaten this season, though that really only means […]

Buh-Bye Dion Phaneuf

So it’s official. Dion Phaneuf is no longer a member of the Calgary Flames. The rumours that have been circulating for the last week came true today as Dion was shipped to the Toronto Maple Leafs with Freddie Sjostrom and Keith Aulie in exchange for Matt Stajan, Niklas Hagman, Jamal Mayers and Ian White. In […]

Flames Win in Toronto for First Time Since 2000

I suppose that Flames fans should be happy that they won tonight, taking their first 2 points away from Toronto since 2000. But after the way they played, I’m not sure we can be so happy. Sure the Flames took 5 of a total 6 points on their 3-game road trip through the eastern conference, […]

Kipper Shuts Out the Canadiens

The Calgary Flames had not won a game in Montreal in 9 years, but that changed tonight when Miikka Kiprusoff shut out the Habs for his first shutout and 10th win of the season. The Flames goaltender has been the team’s best player for the past few games and made some spectacular saves to maintain […]

Phaneuf Hit on Okposo – In Case You Missed It

Sure it’s a week old, but today was actually the first time I stumbled across the video of Dion Phaneuf’s hit on Kyle Okposo on September 17. I was in the Saddledome that night and saw the hit live. There has been much discussion of whether it was clean or dirty, justified or unjustified, and […]

Flames End Sharks 11-Month Home Win Streak

Dion Phaneuf chose the perfect time to end his 25-game goal drought and hand the San Jose Sharks their first regulation loss at home in 11 months. Phaneuf’s goal, with 3:57 left in the 3rd period, gave the Calgary Flames a 3-2 victory in a playoff-like game between the 2 division leaders. Calgary came from […]

Flames Burn Leafs

Dustin Boyd had 2 goals and Jarome Iginla and Dion Phaneuf added a goal and assist each to give the Calgary Flames a 4-3 win over the visiting Toronto Maple Leafs. The Flames, who had dropped 4 of their last 5 games were looking for a win against the Maple Leafs to get some of […]
