The road trip is over, and that’s a relief cause it did not look pretty. Even with the CBA-mandated day off today, the Flames need to take time to regroup at home and ask some tough questions. Namely: what’s up with the start of their season?
Now that the Calgary Flames have actually completed a comeback, do you think they’ll stop putting themselves in a position where they need to come back? Magic eight ball says unlikely, but hooo boy was that a fun ending.
Last season, it was up for debate who was truly the number one goalie. That was a mistake. Thankfully, that mistake has been rectified because that’s exactly the kind of game you want from your number-one goalie to inspire a season’s worth of dreams. All aboard the David Rittich train.
It was a goal from Brandon Prust, assisted by Fredrik Sjostrom and Eric Nystrom. That goal from Prust, which took place on Oct. 1, 2009, was the last game-winning goal by a Calgary Flames player in a season opener. It came against the Vancouver Canucks, and was the fourth goal in what would end up…

The Calgary Flames announced today that Andrew MacDonald, fresh off of being bought out this summer by the Philadelphia Flyers, will be joining training camp on a professional try-out agreement.
Adam Ruzicka is an interesting project. There’s no doubt that he has talent, which is why he ended up eighth on the FlamesNation Top 20 prospect list.
