Luck not with Flames in Sunday loss to Toronto Maple Leafs

Sometimes, the puck just doesn’t bounce your way. It certainly felt that way on Sunday for the Calgary Flames (2-1-1) in their 3-2 loss to the Toronto Maple Leafs (5-2-0) at the Scotiabank Saddledome. All things considered, there really wasn’t all that much that separated the two teams. On all three Leafs goals, though, luck just didn’t seem to be on the Flames’ side. ...

Brodie's understated return to Calgary with Leafs feels just right

After spending a decade manning the blueline for the Calgary Flames, TJ Brodie deserves a polite standing ovation from fans at the Scotiabank Saddledome.   If it was a normal year, Calgary fans would have the opportunity to show their appreciation for all that Brodie did for the Flames on Sunday afternoon when he and his new teammates with the Toronto Maple Leafs took to the ice. ...

Mavericks: Back To Back!

KC Picks Up Wins in 2-of-3 Against Utah When we last checked in with the Flames ECHL affiliate, they were off to a rocky start on the split-season 2021 campaign. They managed to sneak out a pair of back-to-back wins in the last two of their three games this week, so perhaps things are turning around! Nothing official has been announced regarding the realigned Kelly Cup playoffs format, aside from the fact that seeding will be based off of the regular season win percentage. Either by points or win percentage, though, the Mavs are in 5th place coming out of this week. It still...

Flames defenceman Andersson proving he was ready for workhorse duties

Rasmus Andersson sure looks like a guy who was ready for a primetime role. That won’t count as breaking news for anyone who has been tracking the ascent of the 24-year-old blue-liner. But it’s exactly what the Calgary Flames were banking on when Mark Giordano’s longtime defence partner departed as a free agent this fall. TJ Brodie and...

Mangiapane moved to Flames' top line in practice with Dube battling injury

It’s still too early to set your fantasy hockey lineup for Sunday. But it’s worth noting, with Dillon Dube battling a lower-body injury, Andrew Mangiapane is currently taking twirls with the Calgary Flames’ top forward unit. During Thursday’s practice at the Saddledome, Mangiapane was skating in Dube’s usual slot alongside Elias Lindholm and Matthew Tkachuk. ...

Flames newcomer Simon hoping to strike chemistry with Gaudreau, Monahan

This isn’t the first time that Dominik Simon has sidekicked for a star. During his days with the Pittsburgh Penguins, he sometimes skated as a linemate to Sidney Crosby. You’ve undoubtedly heard of that dude. After signing as a free agent with the Calgary Flames, Simon is now getting a look alongside Johnny Gaudreau and Sean Monahan, another prime perch. ...

Flames optimistic that Dube’s injury is only minor

This extended break could be beneficial for Calgary Flames winger Dillon Dube. The 22-year-old is officially day-to-day with a lower-body injury, but with the Flames idle until Sunday’s matinee against the Toronto Maple Leafs, it’s possible that he won’t miss any official action. “There’s nothing there that we feel is serious,” said Flames coach Geoff Ward. “We have a long way to that game, so...

Marky’s mark: Flames goalie has made immediate impression at Saddledome

Elias Lindholm had an opportunity to compliment his buddy. And he did. In the same breath, Lindholm also complimented his boss. Smart man. Moments after the Calgary Flames completed a two-game sweep of the Vancouver Canucks, Lindholm was asked about his puck-stopping pal Jacob Markstrom, who has already made a heck of an impression at the Saddledome since arriving on a six-year, US$36-million deal as a...

Analytical Analysis — Game 3 — The Second Shalacking of VanCity

Photo by Gerry Thomas/NHLI via The Flames overcame a slow start for the first time since Donald Trumps inaugeration and cruised to a dominating 5-2 victory I sent a tweet out in the first intermission (@Flash_33 if you want to tweet along) describing my belief that the Flames had what it took to bounce back in this game. The first was very one sided, but that came from the Flames 4th line getting stuck in their own zone twice, and the struggle to regain momentum after a PK. The top guns were still dominating they just hadn’t had the opportunity to get ice time. Cue...
