Postgame: Brutal

Due to a very, very long locker room session and a long wait to hear from the Head Coach of the Calgary Flames, I’ll be unable to put a full post up following Calgary’s 7-2 debacle of a loss at the hands of the Washington Capitals.  I’ll put one up later, but I figured discussion…


FGD: Look Who’s Here

FGD: Conroypalooza

  He’s Craig Conroy.  He’s played in 497 career games with the Calgary Flames, and tonight he’ll be honored for playing game number 1000 of his NHL career.  It’s the overwhelming storyline heading into Calgary’s tenth game of the season, a meeting with their Northwest Division rivals in the Colorado Avalanche (7:30 pm, TSN and The…
