Maybe the Miikka Kiprusoff trade rumors will simmer down now that he returned from his knee injury to throttle the San Jose Sharks 4-1 after a month-long layoff.Or perhaps that stellar performance will only intensify interest in the Calgary Flames netminder, who has one year left on his current deal.Kiprusoff feels ready to shoulder a big load as his team prepares for the stretch run. “The key is you have to feel strong enough so you’re not worrying about anything,” he told the Calgary Sun. “Are you going to get hurt? Always in practice you have a chance to save yourself or think a little bit, but in a game you have to be confident.“I had my time to get ready for this game. I’ve been working pretty hard. Because other goalies play so well here I had time to get really ready. They didn’t want to push me and take the chance that I’d be hurt again.”NHL insiders will also be watching power forward Jarome Iginla closely.

During the second intermission of Wednesday night's Calgary Flames game at the Scotiabank Saddledome against the San Jose Sharks, a fan stripped down to his briefs and jumped over the glass onto the ice. The fan made it all the way to center ice before being apprehended by security. We've seen fans run onto the field at sporting events many times, but it's extremely...

Flames Activate Kiprusoff

Calgary, AB – The Calgary Flames announced today they have reassigned goaltender Danny Taylor to the Abbotsford Heat and activated Miikka Kiprusoff from injured reserve. Kiprusoff returns to the Flames line-up after recovering from a grade 2 MCL sprain suffered on February 5th against the Detroit Red Wings.

Flames 4, Sharks 1

Miikka Kiprusoff made 32 saves in his return from a knee injury to lead the Calgary Flames to a 4-1 victory over the San Jose Sharks on Wednesday night. Blake Comeau scored the tiebreaking goal early in the third period. Jarome Iginla, Roman Cervenka and Curtis Glencross (into an empty net) also scored for Calgary, which improved to 4-1-1 in its last six games. Joe Thornton had...

And here come the Jerome Iginla Rumors

It was only a matter of time before this started. Pierre Lebrun had a really good read on this today: As I reported last week and it’s been reported elsewhere, the Penguins are believed to have interest in Flames winger Jarome Iginla but just how much they’d be willing to pay on that front, or whether Iginla would have any interest in waiving his no-trade clause to go...

Calgary Flames, New York Islanders Likely to Trade Away Key Players as NHL Trade Deadline Looms

The NHL trade deadline is Wednesday, April 3, which means we’re officially less than one month away. It could be an odd trade deadline given the fact that we’re dealing with a shortened season. A lot of teams are still trying to figure out whether they are going to become competitive or whether it’s best to give up the short-term goals and focus on the future. On that note...

Over the years on Outside the Boxscore, we've posted some pretty notable fan intrusions during sporting events but this one from last night's Calgary Flames/San Jose Sharks NHL affair is pretty darn impressive.

Fan jumps on ice during Flames-Sharks game in his boxers

On Wednesday night one of the rarities occurred in hockey, when a fan climbed over the boards and glass to get onto the ice to go running around in his boxers.  How he managed to get over the boards in the corner where he was coming out from is beyond me, but he did it somehow.  At least this time it was between periods when the Calgary Flames and San Jose Sharks were playing....
