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 […]

Phil Kessel and Miikka Kiprusoff

Toronto Maple Leafs are unbeaten. Calgary Flames are not.

The Toronto Maple Leafs are still unbeaten to start the 2011-2012 season thanks to Phil Kessel’s 3-point night. He scored 2 goals, including the game winner 41 seconds into the 3rd period, as Toronto came back from a 2-0 deficit to beat the Calgary Flames 3-2 last night. Leafs fans may want to take a […]

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 […]

Zero-zero. Final after Flames-Leafs shootout. Almost

If it were possible to have a zero-zero tie as the final score in an NHL game in 2010 (after OT and the shootout!), this would have been it. The Calgary Flames played in Toronto for the first time since the big Phaneuf and Aulie for Stajan, White, Hagman and Mayers trade and it was […]

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, […]

Dion Phaneuf comes to Calgary to face his old team

Riding a two-game winning streak and feeling like the world is their oyster again, Captain Dion Phaneuf and the Toronto Maple Leafs come to Calgary tonight to face the Flames. This will mark the first time that he will play as a visitor in the Saddledome since Dion Phaneuf was traded from the Flames to […]

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, […]

Primeau Traded to Leafs for Stralman and Stuart

The Calgary Flames have freed up some necessary cap space by trading forward Wayne Primeau to the Toronto Maple Leafs in exchange for defenceman Anton Stralman and forward Colin Stuart. The Flames will receive Toronto’s 7th round draft pick in 2012 and the Leafs will receive Calgary’s 2nd round pick in 2011. The trade frees […]

Toronto Beats Calgary in Wild East Shoot Up

The Calgary Flames ended their 7-game roadtrip on the wrong end of an old-time hockey-style shoot-up with the Toronto Maple Leafs. The Flames dropped their 4th game of the road trip 8-6 to the home team in a game that looked more like a shinny game than an NHL game that could affect the Flames […]

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 […]
