Crazy Game Report: Flames beat Hurricanes 7-6. No really.

I can’t remember the last time I saw a hockey game that featured 13 goals. I also can’t remember the last time that an empty net goal was the game winner, especially when that empty netter gave the winning team a 3-goal lead. But such was the case in this crazy game as the Calgary […]

Calgary Flames Superskills Competition
