Game Day: Flames Facing Struggling Blackhawks

Every time the Flames faced the Blackhawks last year, I cringed, curled up into the fetal position, and rocked back and forth in a corner praying for it all to end. This season, things are a bit different, and I’m […]

Calgary Flames Game Day: Let’s Make It Seven?

After surpassing Colorado and moving up to 11th place, the Flames are currently tied with both Chicago and Los Angeles with 58 points. So while it may start to sound redundant, yes, tonight’s game against the Kings is a big one. […]

Calgary Flames: Give Me Five!

Just like I do with my nephew, I’m relentlessly pestered the Flames to give me five until they gave in and did it in the most mediocre way possible. Five games, that is. Against Nashville….always a thriller. That’s right, the […]

Break Out the Crown! The Flames Are Only Two Points Back

WOOOO!

If there’s anything I’ve learned in my time as a Flames fan, it’s to get my hopes up way high and expect only excellence! WOOOOO CUP RUN! OK, that’s a lie. But if there’s one thing I could say at […]

Do I Stand Corrected? Flames, Please Go Ahead and Prove Me Wrong

I’m not one to eat my words often. Well, that’s mainly because I’m never wrong! Besides that though, I’m far too damn stubborn, and I’m OK with that. But when it comes to the Flames, if they want to go […]

Calgary Flames: Sigh….What Can I Say?

If last night didn’t convince you, nothing will. Playoffs, though mathematically still possibly, are pretty much out of the picture. While the Flames have accomplished what they set out to do – playing around .666 hockey – it’s only good […]

Calgary Flames Seek Third Straight Win Tonight in Montreal

It’s been a relatively successful Eastern road trip thus far for the Flames (collecting five of a possible six points), most recently including a shootout defeat of the Toronto Maple Leafs. That one was a huge win for the Flames, […]

Dear Sports Fans: There Is Not A Conspiracy Against Your Team

It’s inevitable. You’re going to hear it from every sports fan. “Why does the league hate my team?” While I’m mainly a hockey follower, I don’t doubt that this is a common statement from every professional sports league. “Well maybe […]

Calgary Flames Rally But Suffer Shootout Loss to Carolina Hurricanes

After what looked like a promising first period against the Carolina Hurricanes, despite the scoreboard, the Flames absolutely collapsed in the second, leading to four unanswered goals by the ‘Canes. Miikka Kiprusoff got pulled in the second after allowing four […]

Flames Got Skills

On this cold (and I mean COLD) Sunday afternoon, many of the Flames players took part in the annual Danone Calgary Flames Superskills competition. After a heartbreaking and undeserved loss to the Detroit Red Wings on Friday, and a general […]

Flames Seek To End 2-Game Skid Against Red Wings…Yay

Well, as most of you saw, the Flames, nor Superman, listened to me and the Canucks were able to score their 10,000th NHL franchise goal. Stupid Sedins. On the plus side, the Flames put up a much more valiant effort […]

Game Day: Flames at Canucks? Here we go again

After an abysmal effort against the Islanders, the Flames have to face the top team in the league (in case you haven’t heard it 500 times already), the Vancouver Canucks at Rogers Place. …or as I like to call it, […]
