What the Flames Need at the Deadline

After a 7-1 victory over the Arizona Coyotes on Jan. 13, the Calgary Flames won their 30th game of the season — seven short of their win total from a season ago — and stretching their record to 30-13-4 through 47 games. They are in the top spot of the Pacific Division as well as the Western Conference and rank second in the NHL behind the Tampa Bay Lightning. People thought the Flames would improve over their 37-35-10 record from 2017-18 and many would have said they’d be a playoff team as...

Flames’ Frolik Responds Strong

The Calgary Flames will be looking to continue their winning ways tonight when they play host to the Arizona Coyotes and attempt to maintain the positive momentum of what’s been a successful homestand so far. The Flames, led by veteran forward Michael Frolik, once again displayed their flare for third-period dramatics in their latest contest by rallying to earn a 4-3 victory against the Florida Panthers.

Backlund’s Game Rounding Into Form Nicely

The Calgary Flames have enjoyed the luxury of having major offensive weapons to rely on during what’s been an outstanding 2018-19 campaign so far. The bad news for the rest of their Western Conference counterparts is that one of their understated depth scorers, Mikael Backlund, is starting to contribute more consistently. Backlund hit the score sheet with his tenth goal of the season in a 5-3 win over the Colorado Avalanche to kick off the Flames’ latest homestand on a positive note. The 29-year...

Ottawa Senators Midseason Report

The recent 5-4 defeat against the Carolina Hurricanes marked the eighth straight loss for the Ottawa Senators, putting them last in the NHL with 35 points (from ‘GARRIOCH GAME REPORT: Senators’ eighth straight loss stings – Ottawa Sun – 1/6/19). Over those eight losses, they’ve been outscored 37-20 and allowing five goals to a Hurricanes team struggling to find the back of the net seemed to be the cherry on top. The Hurricanes rank third-worst this season with 67 goals scored, despite havi...

Is Gaudreau Making a Case for MVP?

Johnny Gaudreau is having a season for the ages. Add to the fraction that the Calgary Flames are sitting atop the Western Conference 44 games into the season — a feat the franchise hasn’t accomplished since 1993 – and the Salem, N.J. native’s campaign looks even more special. His 35 points (16 goals, 19 assists) since Dec. 1 makes him the league’s top scorer since. Similarly, in his last 25 games, he has 20 goals and 25 assists, leading Calgary to its most recent hot streak. This offensive...

Flames’ Tkachuk Blossoming as NHL’s Most Valuable Agitator

The Calgary Flames once again showcased their remarkable come-from-behind abilities in a 3-2 victory over the Philadelphia Flyers that guaranteed them of at least a .500 record on this current four-game road trip. The Flames’ latest triumph was spearheaded by Matthew Tkachuk, who continues to have a knack for producing timely goals this season. The feisty 21-year-old netted the game-tying goal late in the third period and later assisted on the game-winning marker by T.J. Brodie. Tkachuk’s her...

Top 6 Flames Comebacks at Midpoint of Season

While it was far from being a complete 60-minute team effort in Motown, it only seemed appropriate for the Calgary Flames to wrap up the first half of their 2018-19 regular season schedule with a come-from-behind triumph against the struggling Detroit Red Wings. After a lethargic start in which the Flames fell behind 2-0 after the opening 20 minutes, they rallied yet again to secure a 5-3 victory. The comeback was sparked by a brilliant four-point performance from Johnny Gaudreau as they i...

It was a late hit in the final minute by an emotional Bennett on an unsuspecting Radim Simek, followed immediately by a Bennett-Barclay Goodrow fight, that had the Sharks really simmering. And the crowd rockin’. “Predatory,” said Sharks coach Pete DeBoer of a clean, hard hit that will ...

Pending RFAs to Put Teams in Cap Hell

The first part of the 2018-19 NHL season was dominated by William Nylander talk. Talk about his contract, talk about offer sheets and talk about possible trade options.

Ah yes, the Auston Matthews, Patrik Laine draft. Who could forget what happened after their names were called first and second in 2016? I never will.

5 Flames Who Could Make the NHL All-Star Game

Flames Recent Slide: Trend or Just a Red Flag?

The Christmas break couldn’t come at a better time for the Calgary Flames. The team leads the Pacific Division with 47 points. They have lost three straight games, though. It’s their second three-game losing skid of the season. Saturday’s 3-1 defeat to the St. Louis Blues might serve as a wake up call for a common topic in recent memory: lack of secondary scoring. “We Can’t Just Rely on That Top Line” Correct. This sentence was heard many times during the 2017-18 campaign. The Flames mis...
