Follow Colin on Twitter!: @ColinDJD Its game day and the Calgary Flames will take on the New York Islanders tonight for their second of a three game road trip. With a recent increase improvement in play from certain players and success which ensued, the Flames are 5-4-1 in their last ten games play and most, if not all, of their recent success has been at home. With that established, the la...

GIF: Emile Poirier Highlight Reel Goal vs Sherbrooke Phoenix

Emile Poirier, forward on the Gatineau Olympiques, and a 22nd overall Calgary Flames draft pick, had a four goal night yesterday in the QMJHL and scored a highlight reel goal in the third period of a contest between the Olympiques and Phoenix. "Émile Poirier has a long way to go before validating the Calgary Flames when it chose him No. 22 overall at the last NHL draft, but...

Jiri Hudler shoots and misses ... again and again

Jiri Hudler, who played seven seasons in Detroit, is doing well for the Calgary Flames these days. In 57 games this season, he has 14 goals and 29 assists, and it was complete shocker that he was left off the Czech Republic Olympic hockey team that will compete in Sochi beginning next week. Hudler should stick to hockey, though. Donned in his Flames uniform, minus skates, cameras...

Kris Russell in Contract Negotiations With Flames

Kris Russell has been one of the most surprising players for the Calgary Flames. After being acquired in the off-season for a fifth-round pick from the St. Louis Blues, he has been a force on the Flames blue line. In 42 games with the Flames, Russell has amassed four goals and 15 assists for 19 points. Not Earth-shattering totals but in Calgary, that type of production from a defenseman...

Jones scores late, helps Flames beat Islanders

David Jones scored the tiebreaking goal late in the third period and rookie Reto Berra made 28 saves as the Calgary Flames beat the New York Islanders 4-2 Thursday night. Jones banked the puck off the Islanders goalie Evgeni Nabokov from a sharp angle at 14:28 to lift the Flames to their sixth victory in seven games and their first at Nassau Coliseum since 2004. Mikael Backlund...

Mike Cammalleri, Callahan, Hemsky, Gagner, and Briere have been updated on Eklund's Trade Rumor Chart on Cammallleri... Hearing Calgary is trying to sign Mike, but there is interest out of LA, Phoenix, New Jersey and Columbus. Not as much interest as some might be saying, but interest. on Callahan... The Sharks and the St. Louis Blues are the two teams most interested...

Colin Dambrauskas: Flames Boost Carey Price's Confidence in Loss to Canadiens

Follow Colin on Twitter!: @ColinDJD Well, the Calgary Flames winning streak has ended at five straight home games. I find it a little comical that the Flames had a stronger road record prior to this streak and would find their first loss in six games on the road with the addition of veteran Mike Cammalleri. For those of you who may have read my Leafs blog from this morning...

WATCH: Flames' Jiri Hudler shoots hoops with Lakers in hockey gear

Your browser does not support iframes. Jiri Hudler must have taken notice that the Los Angeles Lakers were shorthanded the other night, so the Flames forward practiced with the team in hopes of making the squad. Dressed in full pads the hockey player worked on his free throws with Lakers coach Larry Lewis at the Wells Fargo Center. However Lewis was not about to give up any freebies...

Calgary Flames edge host New York Islanders

For a while, there were suspicions that Reto Berra was billing extra for overtime. On this night, the Calgary Flames netminder got the job done in regulation. Berra, who made NHL history by earning the first seven victories of his career in overtime or shootout situations, kicked aside 28 shots in only 60 minutes of action to backstop the Flames to Thursday’s 4-2 triumph over...

Flames-Islanders Preview

As good as the Calgary Flames have been at home lately, they've had plenty of trouble winning on the road. The New York Islanders are having the opposite problem. The Flames can avoid a season-high fifth consecutive road loss by extending the Islanders' skid at Nassau Coliseum to four games Thursday night. Calgary (21-28-7) totaled 21 goals during its recent 5-0-0 homestand...

Colin Dambrauskas: Team Sweden Picks Johansson Over Backlund; Post Game vs Islanders

Follow Colin on Twitter!: @ColinDJD As yesterday’s blog alluded to in an obvious fashion, only one of the two teams playing last night could improve upon their poor home/road record, and it would be the Calgary Flames who came out on top. Having now won six of their previous ten games played, the Flames have been turning a few heads given their roster depth. Not considered...

Dan Petriw: Isles/Flames Preview

The Islanders return home tonight to take on the Calgary Flames at the Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum. With the Olympic roster freeze going into place tomorrow this could be the last game for Thomas Vanek and Andrew MacDonald in Islanders’ uniforms. It was reported earlier today that MacDonald turned down a four year extension worth 4 million dollars a year. Both Amac...

Price stones Flames in 2-0 Hab win

The skinny: Michael Cammalleri has been more productive than Rene Bourque since they were traded for each other two years ago, but Bourque’s goal at 16:15 of the second period was the icebreaker as the Canadiens defeated the Calgary Flames 2-0 Tuesday night at the Bell Centre. Bourque went to the net and was rewarded when Brandon Prust’s centring pass caromed off his leg. Carey...
