Feeling Blue: Isles Endure Another Defeat in St. Louis

Lack of pride, toughness, and skill have all added up to the Islanders latest defeat. This loss came at the hands of the St. Louis Blues at the Scottrade Center with a final tally of 5-1. The Blues proved why they are an elite team in the league and the Islanders showed that they are nothing more than a poor group of hockey players with absolutely zero confindence.

Blackhawks Host Flames in Final Regular Season Home Game

The Presidents Trophy winning Chicago Blackhawks (35-6-5) face the Calgary Flames (19-24-4) in their final regular season home game at the United Center tonight.

Calgary, losers in two straight including a 4-1 loss last night to the St. Louis Blues, will look to finish their season on a high note against the Chicago team that they nearly defeated in their first matchup back in early February. In that game, Chicago scored with less than 3 seconds remaining to force overtime and eventually won in a shootout to keep their consecutive points streak alive.

In the second matchup between the two, Chicago throttled the Flames by outshooting them 35-16 and shutting them out 2-0 for the...

Game Preview: Flames vs St. Louis Blues

The Flames will face a familiar foe tonight when they head into St. Louis to face Jay Bouwmeester and the Blues. It will be the first time the Flames will face-off against Bouwmeester since the Flames traded him to the Blues on April 1st, in exchange for Mark Cundari, goaltender Reto Berra and now their 1st round pick in this June’s draft.

Game Preview: Flames vs Edmonton Oilers

The Battle of Alberta is re-ignited tonight with the Flames heading up north to meet their provincial rivals, the Edmonton Oilers. They are connected by the same highway but that is about the only thing these two have in common with each team heading in opposite directions in the standings.

What's wrong with the Calgary Flames?

9 games into the season, and the Calgary Flames remain the NHL’s greatest enigma. Nobody can seem to figure them out – as it always has, inconsistency continues to plague this team, so whats going on?

Flames Lose in Dramatic Fashion

The Calgary Flames wasted an incredible effort last night and lost a heartbreaker of a hockey game to the Chicago Blackhawks 3-2 in a shootout.

The team and their fans deserved a much better fate...

The Blackhawks came out of Calgary with a win that they had no business winning but isn’t that what great teams do? They literally snatched a win for what certainly should have been defeat. While they were doing that, back in Chicago and Blackhawks fans everywhere were going through just about as many heart palpations as Ray Emery had logic defying moves.

The Blackhawks came into the Saddledome road weary with having played in Vancouver just 24 hours earlier to face a rested and motivated Calgary Flames. Luckily for the Blackhawks they packed their Ray Bans because it was Ray Emery banning almost everything from the Hawks net.

Flames Lose Fifth Straight: Season Over

The Calgary Flames lost their fifth game in a row on Saturday afternoon in Dallas 4-1.

The season is all but over.

What's the problem though and why did they go on this slide?

In my opinion, it's a losing mentality that's ingrained in the dressing room starting with the coach.
