Follow me on Twitter: @ColinDJD Tonight the Calgary Flames head to Colorado to take on the Avalanche, a team who has come up short in the past three games but is still only sitting one point back of the Flames. If either team is serious about playoffs they will need a string of wins, and there is no doubt that the Av’s are hoping Calgary will be a springboard. In terms of match ups, the A...

Matt Stajan drilled up high by Charlie Coyle

Minnesota Wild rookie forward Charlie Coyle received a five-minute major for elbowing after hitting Calgary Flames center Matt Stajan in the head during the second period of Tuesday night's game at the Xcel Energy Center. Stajan was dumping the puck out of the Flames zone when he was checked by Coyle. Interestingly enough, it was Coyle's shoulder that made contact with...

Do The Flames Have A Plan?

from Damien Cox of Ths Spin at the Toronto Star, It's really amazing how dumb the Calgary Flames have become. A lack of strategic thinking has the Flames in a terrible spot with a disappointing record, still trying to deny all the strong evidence that they need to take a giant step back and rebuild, hanging on to veteran players beyond their due date in some faint hope...

Colin Dambrauskas: Calgary Flames Powerplay Woes...Coyle Suspension?

Follow me on Twitter: @ColinDJD The Calgary Flames took on the Minnesota Wild last night…a game which left many yawning.

Calgary Flames sign Ryan O'Reilly to an offer sheet

The Ryan O'Reilly saga has been, in a word, odd. The Colorado Avalanche haven't exactly been forking over money for the forward's talents. The forward had 18 goals and 37 assists last season for the Avalanche, and had been expecting a bit of a payday. Even his father got into the mix, taking to Twitter to air his issues with the franchise (and misspelling it in the process...
