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 […]

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: Tanguay-Iginla-Stajan

Flames earn 5th straight victory with 4-1 win over Coyotes

The Calgary Flames have chosen a great time to go on a win streak. Rookie sensation Sven Baertschi put Calgary ahead 1-0 just 17 seconds into the game, and they never looked back as they fought their way to a 4-1 win over the Phoenix Coyotes, earning their 5th straight victory. Baertschi’s goal was his […]

Calgary Flames vs Anaheim Ducks

Last-minute Getzlaf goal sinks Flames in Anaheim

Anaheim Ducks captain Ryan Getzlaf hadn’t scored in 17 games but managed to find the back of the Flames net with 46 seconds remaining in regulation to break a 2-2 tie and give the Ducks the win. The loss was Calgary’s 15th straight at the Honda Centre, dating back to a time when Anaheim’s team […]

Flames give up 3-goal lead, lose to Philly in the shootout

It was another frustrating night for loyal Calgary Flames fans as the team got out to a great start only to blow a 3-goal lead and end up on the wrong side of the shootout loss column. It was retro night at the Saddledome and the only thing good about this game was the music […]

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 […]

Calgary Flames lose 14th straight game in Anaheim

The Honda Center has not been a friendly place for the Flames for a long time. Thanks to Niklas Hagman’s 8th-round shootout goal, which gave the Ducks a 3-2 win tonight, it continues to be the worst place on earth for Calgary to visit. Calgary hasn’t won a regular season game in Anaheim since 2004 […]

Battle of Alberta report: Flames come back and defeat Oilers 2-1

On a night meant to celebrate victories, both on the ice and in the lives of cancer survivors around the world, the Calgary Flames didn’t disappoint. After trailing for much of the game, the Flames scored two goals in 1:29 to take the lead and the important two points in this opening round of the […]

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 […]

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, […]

Tanguay Trade Rumours Start Again

The “Trade Alex Tanguay for Alex Kovalev” rumours have started again. After Calgary’s 5-4 shootout loss (and Kovalev’s post-game comments about Montreal head coach Guy Carbonneau) rumours started to circulate at RDS about the possibily of a Kovalev-Tanguay trade between Montreal and Calgary. This trade rumour is not a new thing… it’s been rumour-ed about […]
