Current home stand huge for Calgary Flames

At the start of the 2014-15 season, most hockey fans and pundits believed the Calgary Flames would be in the running for generational talent Conner McDavid rather than in a battle for a playoff spot come February. The Flames were entering just the second full-year of a rebuild which truly began with the trade of […] The post Current home stand huge for Calgary Flames appeared first...

Good, Bad and Ugly: Sabres vs Calgary Flames

From Hometown Hockey: Following every Sabres game, we’ll be taking a little look at the previous night’s action with a little segment called “good, bad and ugly”. Expect a loooooooot of ugly. I damn near nailed the score on the head (I predicted 4-2 Flames), so there’s that. But for the rest of the not-so-good […] The post Good, Bad and Ugly: Sabres vs Calgary Flames...

Calgary Flames midseason report card

We have arrived at the NHL All-Star break not only with the Calgary Flames fully intact, but actually in the running for a playoff spot.

Dennis Wideman scores in overtime to lift Flames over Kings

  At first glance, Dennis Wideman thought his overtime shot beat Jonathan Quick. By the time he got to the Flames' bench, the defenseman decided he was mistaken. Wideman was thrilled to learn his first instinct had been correct and Calgary had just roared past the defending Stanley Cup champions in the standings. Wideman scored 4:08 into overtime, and the Flames rallied past Los...

GIFs: Joni Ortio makes two incredible glove saves

The goaltending situation in Calgary is a pretty confusing one. There’s a possibility the Flames will roll with three goaltenders (Jonas Hiller, Karri Ramo and Joni Ortio), but head coach Bob Hartley has said that he hates the idea of using roster space on a third netminder and will play the situation by ear. Well, Ortio may have made that decision a bit more difficult with two...

Mikael Backlund hits ground running in return to Flames’ lineup

It’s usually pretty tough to come back from a long break like Christmas, especially when you’re writing about a whole new team. It was easy to write about the Oilers; underachieving teams give lots of discussion points and lots of great stories. But here I am on a somewhat less controversial path, writing about the […] The post Mikael Backlund hits ground running in return...

Calgary Flames Rookie Johnny Gaudreau Is Attempting To Patent “Johnny Hockey”

Calgary Flames rookie Johnny Gaudreau has a radical idea in mind for what people should refer to him as. In the spirit of Johnny Manziel and “Johnny Football”, Gaudreau is looking to patent and trademark “Johnny Hockey” according to TSN. Gaudreau had 32 points in his first 42 games and is now afraid that people are going to abuse the name without him getting anything out...

Johnny Gaudreau files trademark for “Johnny Hockey”

A word of advice to pro athletes everywhere: following in Johnny Manziel’s footsteps might not be the best idea in the world. Apparently, no one told this to Calgary’s Johnny Gaudreau. Still, this time it might not be the worst idea in the world. Take it away, from TSN: After NFL quarterback Johnny Manziel turned heads while winning the Heisman Trophy and made headlines by...

Mikael Backlund, 2015 Second Half Fantasy Sleeper

In seven seasons since the Flames took Mikael Backlund 24th overall he has failed to live up his draft position or the hype that followed. Not once has he topped 40 points or 20 goals, so it might seem odd to peg him as a second half sleeper now, but after he returned from an abdominal injury recently he’s been on fire. Since January 7th he’s put up three goals, two assists,...

Flames Score Own Goal After Pulling Goalie For Delayed Penalty (Video)

When it rains, it pours, and there’s a torrential downpour extinguishing the Calgary Flames right now. After a hot start to the season, the Flames recently have fallen on hard times. Calgary lost 3-2 to the Vancouver Canucks in overtime on Saturday night, and the Flames have now lost eight of their last 10 games. Saturday’s loss was even worse given how it all came to be. The...

Video: Calgary Flames score on themselves during a delayed penalty

Here’s another classic case of a team scoring on itself during a delayed penalty. It almost always happens the same way. A forward passes it back to the point and the puck usually bounces off the boards, down the ice and into the open net. The Flames ended up losing to the Canucks 3-2, making this goal that much more painful.
