Post-Game: Your Calgary “Ocean’s Eleven” Flames!!!

  If you factor in the additions of Hanowski, the re-signing of MacBackup, the earlier additions of the likes of Sven and Max Power… even the season long astonishing rise of TJ Brodie, there are are actually like eleven new faces to track throughout the line-up. We’ve all said this before, but really? What realistic…

POST-GAME: Wild at Heart

    Now that your Calgary Flames have soundly beaten the Oilers, the goal for the rest of the season should be pretty damn clear. Play your asses off, put in a solid effort and then lose a close nailbiter. There is no shame or pride left in the final solution. The only problem with…

POST-GAME: #SpoilTheOil

  Today started off much the same as any day when it’s the Battle of Alberta. A conversation with a few of my friends that just happen to be Oilers fans (What can I say, I’m a charitable guy). The conversation involved much of the same banter that inevitably comes when the Calgary Flames and…

VOICE OF THE NATION: Red Red Whine

    I have not always been the voice of logic and reason here in FlamesNation, but have tried to remain the voice of optimism. That’s becoming pretty hard to do given the recent history of this club, even for me. The idea when we started ‘Voice of the Nation’ was to bring a forum…

POST-GAME: One For the Road?

  When the Avs announced last minute that JS Giguere was getting the start over Sergei Varlomov, it was quite apparent that they had every intention of giving your Calgary Flames a good run for thir money at just who deserved to sit at the bottom of the barrel. Calgary had already made their statement…

FGD: An Exciting Local Experiment

  There are bound to be plenty of nights in the remaining twelve games where the outcome is not of any significance or have any bearing on anything other than where the Flames will draft on June 30th in New Jersey. Tonight however, is not one one of those nights.

POST-GAME: The Hav-lats and the Have-nots

  When you’re 0 for 11 on the road and the team you are playing against is going for their seventh straight wins, you don’t have a lot to be optimistic about. Especially when you look at your roster and as Kent noted, Cory Sarich is your third best defenseman. O.o Nevertheless, Calgary still has…

FGD: One Tin Soldier – The Legend of City Yak

  After Shelbyville showed us all that even a broken clock is right twice a day, the Battle of Alberta gamethread is back where it belongs. Oh and if you don’t get the reference in the title? Google is your friend. Tonight, two teams on completely different roads will cross paths once again, where scoreboard…

POST-GAME: A New Chapter… But Same Story

  Your Calgary Flames began a new chapter in this fabled franchise, but the theme remained constant. Having to compensate for a horrific road record, the Flames have been able to provide a counter balance with eight straight wins at home. It’s the same story we here at Flames Nation have been telling for awhile…

POST-GAME: Chelsea Daggered

  Believe it or not, your Calgary Flames had already played this game before it started. Facing a team the night after they experienced a disappointing loss, and looking to make a statement. Unlike when they faced the Dallas Stars in a similar situation, the Flames needed to have a game plan ready to go…

POST-GAME: Thank You Iggy!!!

  This team needed a win! It didn’t matter how they got it, who they had to run over or who they got to score the goals to get them there, they just had to find a way to make it happen tonight. It was fan appreciation night and I don’t care who you are,…

POST-GAME: All Good Things are Wild and Free!

  They say at the moment when death is imminent there is a sort of calm that comes over the mind, that is liberating and can be described as uninhibeted  freedom. One has to wonder how enraged Flames fans were tonight, even though the outcome was expected. What would be even more interesting is how…
