Flames Don't Like Disneyland

The Flames streak of losing in Disneyland continued as they fell 3-2 in a shootout to the Ducks.

Despite having a PP in the last half of the third, and glorious opportunities in the OT and the shootout, they still came up short.

They got one point, but desperately needed another.

Game Preview: Flames vs Anaheim Ducks

Each and every game continues to get more and more important for the Flames as they head into Anaheim to face the Ducks tonight. This is the second of four meetings between the clubs, with the Flames winning the first game 1-0 in overtime. It’s easy to say tonight is a must win for the club but tonight is a MUST WIN. The Ducks have been playing much better hockey of late but any team that is lower in the standings, the Flames have to beat in order to give them any sort of chance erasing the 4 point gap between them and 8th place. Saying that tonight’s task won’t be easy as the Flames haven’t won in Anaheim in nearly 8 years. They have lost 13 straight games at the Honda Center with their last victory coming on January 19, 2004.

Game Preview: Flames vs Chicago Blackhawks

The Flames enter tonight’s game against the Blackhawks much like they did against the Red Wings. For the second straight game they host a team that will come into the Dome coming off an embarrassing loss. That is the case for the Blackhawks who surrendered a 2-0 lead to lose 8-4 to Sam Gagner and the Edmonton Oilers last night. The Flames will have to take advantage of the Hawks playing back-to-back games. This is the 4th and final meeting between the teams with Chicago leading the series 2-1. Both teams victories have come on home ice, so if that trend continues, the Flames are in good shape heading into tonight’s match-up.

Making the Case: Three Reasons Why the Flames Will or Won’t Make the NHL Playoffs

Will the Flames make the playoffs or not?

Flames bloggers Greger Buer and Brad Windsor give differing opinions as to where the Flames will be come mid- April.

Wings dispose of Flames

The Flames continue to have trouble scoring goals as they lost for the second straight game at home and the second straight in regulation, failing to register any points.

The 3-1 loss to the Red Wings means the Flames have now scored one goal or less in 6 of their 7 games.

Yikes!

Game Preview: Flames vs Detroit Red Wings

The second half for the Flames kicks-off tonight and it doesn’t start easy as they host the Detroit Red Wings, who are 1st place in the Western Conference and lead the league with 67 points. Tonight’s match-up will be the 4th and final one between the teams as the Flames have won 2 of 3 thus far.

Brendan Morrison Traded

The Flames did a bit of house cleaning prior to the All Star break dealing Morrison to the Blackhawks for up and coming AHL All Star defenceman Brian Connelly.

A good move by the Flames as Morrison was aging and not seeing any ice time as a result of the youth movement in Calgary.

Flames shut out by Sharks

The Flames head into the All Star break by losing 1-0 to the San Jose Sharks.

Through 50 games they sit in exactly the same position as last season.

Game Preview: Flames vs San Jose Sharks

It was a good road trip for the Flames as they managed 5 of 6 possible points, including another dominating, 6-2 victory over the Oilers on Saturday night. The Flames will look to get back on their winning ways at home as they host the San Jose Sharks tonight at the Dome. The Sharks sit third in the Western Conference but are currently on a 3-game losing skid being outscored 10-6 during the span. The Sharks also come into town playing on back-to-back, losing in a SO last night in Edmonton.

The Future of Kipper

Since being traded over in 2003, Miikka "Kipper" Kiprusoff has been tremendous for the Calgary Flames.

His acrobatic and show-stopping highlights have proved him to be a top goaltender in the league. With another strong season underway, his age doesn't appear to be slowing him down.

But, like every athlete in this world, his time will end. Unfortunately, that time is creeping close and Kipper's future with the Flames is as uncertain as ever.
