Post Game: Scoring Isn’t So Hard!

Coming off of a game in which the Sharks had approximately 6,987 shot attempts and didn’t score a single goal, it seemed fairly obvious that the Sharks would be fairly frustrated and looking to score a pile against a vastly inferior Flames lineup. Perhaps the Flames would put up a valiant fight, similar to the…

FGD: To Catch a Predators

Ahh yes, those were the days huh? Such grit, and not a whole lot else. The Flames and Preds used to be a sneaky good rivalry, mostly because I can remember the Preds simply owning the Flames the vast majority of the time. I am sure we all remember the Vokoun/Kipper fight which was crazyness and…

Post-Game: Sharked

After that gong-show in Vancouver, which I personally attended by the way (did you know the Canucks wrote a song for this season? It’s as cool as you would think), the Flames were eager to play hockey again and head into their dressing rooms in peace. The Flames lost 3-2 to the Sharks though they…

Post-Game: Vapour Trail

pic via Roncesvalles_MP Well folks, here it is. The worst stretch of home losses in club history, seven in a row in regulation. During that stretch, the Flames have been out-scored 22-4 and been shut out four times. Yikes.  You’ll be able to tell your kids about this bunch of games, presumably cautioning them to…

Post-Game: Flames Stymie ‘Canes

Pic via tico_manudo There has been a lot of darkness surrounding the Flames as of late, a lot of glum discussions about offensive futility, frustrations at the makeup of the roster, and wringing of hands regarding the lack of roster movements. A win or loss in any one game doesn’t alleviate these concerns in any…

Post Game: Nope! No goals.

pic via Chiot’s Run Before the game, Sportsnet played the highlights of the last Flames/Blues game on December 23rd. The Flames erasing a two-goal third period deficit, Giordano scoring with five seconds left to the roar of a dome crowd, once again invested in the fortunes of a loveable but altogether out-matched team. It all…

Post-Game: Flames No Show in Glendale

pic via Chris.Chabot Boy oh boy, has everyone had a deep breath after that game?! Whew! I think I speak for everyone who was subjected to watched this game when I say, wow, this game sucked. Like, I could try to think of more diplomatic language but why mince words? A mixture of bad bounces and…

FGD: Flames Hit The Road

pic via Mod as Hell The Flames have scored exactly one time during their last four games. That is, well, not great. Especially considering that those games were at home and two of them were against their two chief rivals, games that the Flames suffered shutout defeats. Yes, now might be a good time to…

Post Game: Flames Drop Ball on NYE

pic via Simonpix Hopefully by now everyone has shaken off the effects of their festivities last night and awoke this morning ready to face 2014 with all the grit, pugnacity, and of course truculence, that one would expect of a Flames fan.  If you didn’t watch the game or drank yourself into a state of…

GDB: OMG BOA

 pic via: PremierofAlberta It is a great time of year to be a hockey fan. As is boxing day tradition, I am sure many of us set our cell-phones for a painfully early wake-up on boxing day to take in the most hallowed of holiday traditions, the Spengler Cup. As I am sure you all…

Post Game: Flames Stun Blues

Pic via PaulSh The Blues are a very good hockey team. They a strong, tough, skilled, insanely deep on defence and they have two above average goaltenders. The Flames have Chris Breen, Reto Berra, and David Jones. So, I am sure that Flames fans weren’t expecting a lot from this game.   What the Flames…

FGD: Wing Night

Pic via Ktpupp Tonight, the Flames head to a North American city where there are about 350 stray dogs per square mile. No, not Mexico City but good guess! They like to call this Mad-Maxian dystopia, "Detroit." The hockey team that plays in Detroit are always, always good. Like, frustratingly so.So much so that Mike Babcock,…
