Postgame: Home Cooking

It’s funny how perception changes…you could look at Calgary’s five game road trip and say they lost four of five games, or you could look more recently and see two wins in three games.  Regardless, the Flames took a 3-0 win Monday night over the Minnesota Wild as Miikka Kiprusoff made 32 saves to post…


FGD: Wild Visit

The Minnesota Wild make their first appearance in Calgary tonight as the Flames return home from a lackluster five game road trip through the Eastern Conference where they went 1-2-2 (7 pm, Sportsnet Flames and The FAN 960).  Overall, the Flames find themselves three games below .500 once again, and they’re four back of the…


Gameday Preview: Minnesota

      The Flames head back to action this evening against the Wild, after getting a lengthy trip east out of the way and managing to do so without any casualties. Tonight, Calgary hosts a squad that is absolutely hanging on because of their powerplay and goaltending.  


In Living Colour

I know this is a Calgary Flames site, but I’m just home from Edmonton after watching the 98th Grey Cup…and seeing as how the result saw the Saskatchewan Roughriders lose, I thought I’d post some pictures of the experience for the Flames fans who can’t stand that shade of green.  The final score saw Montreal take out…


November 28 News and Notes

Postgame: Crosby 3 Calgary 1

Our Kent Wilson commented on today’s FGD by saying the Penguins have "limited depth up front, but Crosby is so good it almost doesn’t matter."  How prophetic are those words?  The Calgary Flames finished a five game road trip with a 4-1 loss in Pittsburgh, but it wasn’t JUST Crosby on Saturday.  The Penguins were…


FGD: Try For Two

After a really impressive win over the Flyers on Friday morning, the Calgary Flames will try for back to back wins today against the red hot Pittsburgh Penguins (11 am, Sportsnet West and The FAN 960).  The Flames looked solid for 65 minutes against a strong Flyers team, and a similar game in Steel Town…


Postgame: An Entertaining Win

We don’t hear that very often, but a strong game for the Calgary Flames resulted in an exciting 65 minutes of hockey and a real fun shootout…when it was all said and done, the Flames would top the Flyers 3-2 in a shootout, snapping a three game losing skid and giving Calgary their first win…
