FGD: Beantown Battle

Pic Via Beetlebrox For the second consecutive Tuesday, the Flames will take on the Bruins (22-9-2) and this time, thanks to more casualties from the flu and Bob Hartley’s crazed worldview, the roster looks as though it will be held together with duct tape.  The last time that the Flames visited Boston, it was uh,…

FGD: Flames Take Broadway

pic via Krandolph I think I speak for all Flames fans when I say that we all knew the Chris Butler/Paul Byron connection was deadly. It was just a matter of time.  As a result, the Flames are entering tonight’s game on a two-game winning streak with a pair of OT wins against Carolina and…

Post Game: Oilers Hudwinked

Well, no regular season win feels quite as good than one against the Oilers. Except maybe the Canucks. No wait, in the wake of their "rebuild at all costs, the next six years mean nothing" arrogance, definitely the Oilers.

FGD: Flames Host Roy’s Boys

Consequently, the Avalanche will likely not be in a great…

FGD: Return of the Mark

Tonight’s game features the Pacific Division’s most inexpensive team…

Post-Game: Duck Dynasty

  January 19th, 2004, a simpler time. The jerseys, baggy. The goaltenders, bloated. The Flames, loveable. A time when men were men and most of the Edmonton Oilers were teething. This was the date of the last Flames victory in Anaheim. 18-straight games. Some of those were close games with dramatic late-game heartbreaks. Some games,…

Post-Game: Kane Enabled

The Flames took on the NHL-best Chicago Blackhawks tonight and, well, provided fans with the illusion that they could beat them in regulation before collapsing in the third period again, this time with no chance of extra-time heroics. On the strength of two third period goals from Patick Kane, one of which coming with 18…
