Post-Game: Better than the worst

The Calgary Flames won on Monday night at the Saddledome. They were playing the National Hockey League’s worst team, the Colorado Avalanche, and handed them their 52nd regulation loss of the season. The Avalanche are bad and the Flames were better than them and won 4-2. That said, it wasn’t exactly a game where the […]


FGD 76: An avalanche of points (7pm MT, SN West)

Barring a meltdown of catastrophic proportions, the Calgary Flames are going to be playing when the Stanley Cup playoffs begin on April 12. With seven games remaining in the regular season, the Flames first course of action is to make their playoff presence official by clinching a spot. After that? It’s time to work on […]


FN Mailbag – March 27, 2017

With the victory of the St. Louis Blues, the Flames’ chances of making the playoffs grew to over 99% according to Sports Club Stats. They’re in. What we’re left with now is talking about match-ups and challenges, strengths and weaknesses. There are no soft touches in the Western Playoff picture at this point, so no […]


Prospect wrap up: Brandon Hickey

Brandon Hickey has tumbled out of the NCAA tournament and (hopefully soon) into the hands of the Calgary Flames. The 2014 fourth round pick has been earmarked since draft day as a potential future stud, and had a promising draft +1 year. He slipped in year two, which raised some concern. Has he been good […]


What should we expect from Troy Brouwer in the playoffs?

Troy Brouwer’s first season as a member of the Calgary Flames has largely been a disappointing one after signing a four-year, $18 million contract on July 1. One refrain we’ve heard in some quarters, though, has been how much Brouwer raises his game come the postseason. But is that claim legitimate? With the Flames very […]


Post-Game: Brouwer Play

The Calgary Flames came into the Scottrade Center in St. Louis this evening looking for a strong finish to a fairly disappointing road trip. Having lost two in a row and facing a Western Conference wildcard contender for the second time in as many games, the Flames really needed a win to give themselves some […]


Hickey Watch is on as Boston University knocked out of Frozen Four

Folks, keep your eyes on Twitter because there may be some Calgary Flames news coming down the pike in the near future.

Prospect wrap up: Riley Bruce and Nick Schneider

Since Tuesday, we’ve been recapping the seasons of some of the Flames’ most interesting prospects. We’ve looked at Tyler Parsons, potential goaltender of the future. Dillon Dube, a young and exciting centre. Eetu Tuulola, a goal-scoring teddy bear. Matthew Phillips, a tiny workhorse. And here are, unfortunately, the less exciting prospects. There always has to […]


Flames sign college UFA Josh Healey

With the Ohio State Buckeyes eliminated in last night’s game against Minnesota-Duluth (who are playing BU and Brandon Hickey later today), Josh Healey became a free agent. This morning, the 22 year old was scooped up by the Flames on an entry level contract, and will be on an ATO with Stockton for the rest […]
