Danny Taylor gets his first NHL win, Flames beat Canucks

Calgary Flames goaltender Danny Taylor has his first NHL win, and it couldn’t have come at a better time. The Plymouth, UK-born goaltender stopped 29 shots to help the Flames beat the Canucks 4-2, and in doing so, becomes only the 3rd UK-born goaltender to win an NHL game. Taylor had a lot of help […]

It’s Hockey Day in Canada! Here’s your Flames-Canucks preview

It’s Hockey Day in Canada today, so as soon as you’re finished reading this post you should go grab your skates and your stick and head to your local outdoor rink to play some shinny… unless of course, you live in Vancouver where there isn’t really a winter so this isn’t an option. CBC came […]

Flames can’t figure out how to beat Canucks

The Calgary Flames struck first, but the Vancouver Canucks countered with 5 unanswered goals to win the second match of the season 5-1. After a strong first period where the Flames kept the Canucks off the scoreboard by taking away time and space, Alex Tanguay gave the Flames a 1-0 lead with a bank-in goal […]

Flames narrowly avoid shutout in 1st meeting with Canucks

The Calgary Flames really sucked tonight. If the 5-1 final score doesn’t tell the story well enough, here are a couple words that may help: Stink: v. (Slang) To be of an extremely low or bad quality. Crappy: adj. Inferior; worthless. Weak: adj. Lacking physical strength, energy, or vigor; feeble. I can’t really put into […]

Vancouver Canucks come to town

After almost 5 months of investigation, the Vancouver Police have finally recommended that more than 160 charges be laid for the June Stanley Cup Riots in Vancouver. As such, it is fitting that the Canucks-Flames rivalry will heat up again tonight. Don’t expect any burning police cars in Calgary, but you should expect to see […]

Conference Finals: Who are you cheering for?

Yesterday, I received an email from Jeff Klein, one of the writers for The New York Times hockey blog, Slap Shot. He was looking for my thoughts on whether I (and other Canadian hockey fans) are cheering for the Canucks because they are the only Canadian hockey team left in the Stanley Cup race. He […]

Battle for the Ages: Flames host Canucks tonight

The league-leading Vancouver Canucks come to town tonight to play the Flames for the 2nd last time of the season. Vancouver is looking to keep their push for the President’s Trophy alive, while the Flames are looking to inch their way closer to a playoff spot. Calgary has played 70 games and sits in 8th […]

Flames down Canucks in the Shootout

The Calgary Flames haven’t had much luck against the Vancouver Canucks this season, but that changed tonight. After a tight battle through 60 minutes, the game went to overtime where both teams failed to capitalize on powerplay attempts. A shootout was needed and Alex Tanguay ended up scoring the winner on a controversial goal that […]

Canucks almost get a shutout against the Flames

I suppose it was a fitting end to the night. On an evening that had few happy moments for Calgary Flames and Team Canada¬†hockey fans, it was one thing that we could cheer about. Tim Jackman ruined Roberto Luongo’s shutout bid with just over 10 seconds left in the game by scoring the Flames only […]

Canada-Russia and Flames-Canucks pre-game

It’s a double header tonight and it’s fixing to be a good one as two classic rivalries heat up tonight. Starting at 5:30pm, I’ll be ready. A few weeks ago @that_angela thought it would be a good idea for some Flames and Canucks fans (read Team Canada fans) to get together to watch the two […]

Stay classy Canucks fans

This video pretty much speaks for itself, but I figured it would also be appropriate to note that Vancouver Canucks fans have been voted as some of the worst in the world. This is just more proof to throw on top of the pile. I think we should declare May 11 the new “Vancouver Canucks […]
