Post-Game: Flames beet Oilers

It’s been said quite a lot over the past few seasons that the Battle of Alberta doesn’t mean what it used to. That’s definitely true in regards to the standings and playoff contention, as Saturday night’s installment featured a pair of teams a combined 30 points out of any playoff spots. But something was in…


Flames recall Oliver Kylington on emergency basis

After having recalled David Rittich, Rasmus Andersson, Jon Gillies, and, finally, Spencer Foo, the Flames are out of regular recalls. That doesn’t mean they can’t make an emergency recall, though. To that end, Oliver Kylington has been brought up, on a just in case basis.


FGD 79: The sadness bowl (8pm MT, CBC/SN West)

Misery loves company, they say, and so few will enjoy company as much as the two Alberta hockey clubs. The Calgary Flames (35-33-10) are 12 points out of a playoff spot and will host the Edmonton Oilers (34-38-6), who are 18 points out. Since their last meeting the Flames have won once and Edmonton four…


FlamesNation prospect wrap-up: Zach Fischer

The Flames have been sorely lacking in right wing depth since Iggy left, which is pretty dang sad considering all the time they had to fix that one specific problem. Free agency hasn’t really worked out and neither has trading. The team, throughout various management regimes, is seemingly adverse to drafting at that position, having…


Giordano and Hamilton head and shoulders above the rest

With so much negativity surrounding the Flames currently, here’s a positive for you: this team’s top pairing is having another stellar season. After going through our report card exercise at forward earlier this month, our look at the blueline is a little more stark. Calgary’s top pairing has been very good, but the drop off…


Post-Game: Locals take their lumps against Columbus

Things haven’t been going great for the Calgary Flames lately. Entering tonight’s date with the Columbus Blue Jackets, they had some trouble scoring goals and some trouble keeping pucks out of their own net. That trend continued on Thursday night at the Saddledome. A familiar combination of porous defensive play and a snake-bit offense contributed…


Flames recall Spencer Foo from Stockton

The Calgary Flames have made possibly their final roster move of the 2017-18 season. The club announced that it has recalled forward Spencer Foo from the American Hockey League’s Stockton Heat.


FGD 78: Playing for pride (7pm MT, SN West)

The Calgary Flames (35-32-10) are back at home and officially starting to play out the string, having been mathematically eliminated from post-season contention with a loss against Los Angeles on Monday night. But the games keep coming and the undermanned Flames face a big, big challenge in the form of the Columbus Blue Jackets (43-29-5)….


FlamesNation prospect wrap-up: Dillon Dube

The final steps of the Flames’ rebuild likely happened at the 2016 draft, where the Flames came up loaded with draft picks and returned with a handful of very, very promising prospects. One of them is already trending towards being an elite NHL player, and there are two or three that look to at least…


WWYDW: What holes in the roster need to be fixed?

With the way the Flames have played this season – to say nothing of how they ultimately bowed out of the postseason dance – there’s little to look forward to but next year. So, while the corpse is still fresh, we ask: what changes need to be made to this roster so that this time…
