2013-14 Flames Season Primer

In just a little less than 24-hours, the Calgary Flames will open up their first season without Jarome Iginla and Miikka Kiprusoff since 2005-06. It’s the start of a new era in Calgary, as the re-build is well under way. There are no superstars or first overall picks (yet) in the line-up; so to say it could be a long year for the Flames is a fairly accurate statement.

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. The Oilers currently sit in a tie for 10th, one point out of the playoffs, while the Flames sit 14th, just two points ahead of the 30th place Florida Panthers.

Game Preview: Flames vs Colorado Avalanche

It is the battle of the basement dwellers tonight at the Dome with the 14th place Flames playing host to the 15th place Colorado Avalanche. The Flames enter tonight’s game coming off a 2-0 loss to the Blackhawks last night in Chicago. The Avalanche on the other hand, come into Calgary on two days’ rest, not having played since Sunday when they went down to defeat to the Vancouver Canucks, 3-2.

Blackhawks put out Flames to end losing streak

 

GAME RECAP

The Chicago Blackhawks ended their two game losing streak by shutting out the Calgary Flames last night 2-0. Nick Leddy and Brent Seabrook each scored for the Blackhawks.

An added storyline to last night’s game was the trade speculation surrounding Flames Right Winger Jarome Iginla. Recently, Iginla submitted a list of four teams he would not block a trade to. The Blackhawks are on that list. Even though Iginla’s numbers are down, he can add veteran leadership to any of teams he is traded to.

Blackhawks netminder Ray Emery continued his strong play against the Flames by making 16 stops. Emery's personal win streak now stands...

Game Preview: Flames vs Chicago Blackhawks

The Flames head back on the road tonight, a place they have not been too fond of as of late, currently riding a 9-game win-less streak (0-8-1). Breaking the streak will not come easy heading into Chicago to face the league’s best team. The Blackhawks will finish off rare back-to-back home games after losing last night, 5-4 to the defending champs Los Angeles Kings.

Game Preview: Flames vs St. Louis Blues

The Flames return home from their three-game road trip, which saw their winless streak away from the Dome reach nine games (0-8-1). The Flames welcome the St. Louis Blues to town, and will look to continue their success at home, trying to extend their winning streak to seven games. The St. Louis Blues will finish off back-to-back games after defeating the Oilers 3-0 last night in Edmonton

Game Preview: Flames vs Nashville Predators

The Flames will look to end their 7-game winless streak (0-6-1) on the road when they head into Nashville to visit the struggling Predators. This is the second meeting between the clubs in less than a week after the Flames had a convincing 6-3 win over the Preds last Friday night at the Saddledome.

Game Preview: Flames vs Nashville Predators

The Flames will look for their sixth straight win at the Dome tonight when they host the Nashville Predators. The Flames are coming off a huge third period against the Detroit Red Wings on Wednesday that saw them score three goals on their way to a 5-2 victory.

Game Preview: Flames vs Anaheim Ducks

The Flames will look to continue one streak while trying to end another tonight when they head into Anaheim to face the Ducks. The Flames have not won in Anaheim in fifteen straight visits but are playing their best hockey of the season and will look to extend their winning streak to a season-high three games. The Ducks are one of the surprises so far in this shortened season, sitting in 2nd place in the West, and at the top of the Pacific Division.
