Postgame: A Rough Night

A day after a strong performance minus the correct result in Detroit, the Flames were unable to pull things out at Madison Square Garden, falling 2-1 in their only meeting with the New York Rangers.  It was a game filled with hard hitting, chippy play…and one crushing hit delivered by Marc Staal to Calgary’s Matt…


FGD: New York, New York

Depending on how things go tonight in the Big Apple, Calgary could either be riding an impressive three game point streak, or be staring at consecutive losses once again. And the way things are right now, the perception of this team seems to swing wildly back and forth by the hour.  Nevertheless, the Flames invade Madison…


Game Day Preview: The Apple Awaits

  After last night’s unfortunate turn of events, the Flames have no time to sulk, as they head to Manhattan for a shot at the Rangers this evening. They’ll meet a team that is beginning their transition to becoming a bit younger, especially on the blueline.


Postgame: Heartbreak In Mo-Town

That one stings.  Despite carrying a 3-1 lead heading into the third period, and holding a 4-2 lead into the final half of the third period, the Calgary Flames fell 5-4 to the Detroit Red Wings in overtime, starting off a five game road trip on a sour note.  It was a game with plenty…

November 20 News and Notes

  There are weeks where finding anything that interests me enough to put a round-up together is a bit of a chore. I suspect you’ll be unsurprised to read that this isn’t one of those weeks, so let’s get to it. In this installment, the Flames make a move and bust a string, I agree…


Postgame: A Positive Result

The Calgary Flames found the back of the net, and found the back of the net often on Friday night, taking a 7-2 win at home over the Chicago Blackhawks.  It was a strong game pretty much from start to finish for the home side, and thanks in part to a three goal night from…
