As he reached his dressing room stall, Curtis Glencross was asked if he wanted to take a moment to catch his breath before talking to the media.
Not necessary, the Calgary Flames left winger replied.
“That’s the easiest day I’ve had in months,” Glencross said with a smile.
Considering how this season has gone — actually, the past 12 months — Glencross deserves to have reason to smile.
Having missed the last 29 games due to a high-ankle sprain suffered just before Christmas, he’s expected to be in the lineup when the Flames play host to the Anaheim Ducks Wednesday night.
“It’s gonna be good,” said Glencross.
“I’ve put in a lot of hours on the ice bag-skating and a lot of hours in the gym.
“It’s not the year I’ve wanted, injury-wise, I’ve only played 21 games this year, so I want to take these last games and make the best of them to take strides for next year.”
Glencross also missed 15 games early in the season due to a knee injury.

Sean Monahan is skating with a heavy heart.
The Calgary Flames rookie is mourning the loss of former minor hockey teammate Terry Trafford, a member of the Ontario Hockey League’s Saginaw Spirit who was missing for more than a week before Tuesday’s tragic news that his body had been found.

It’s common practice in sports for athletes to keep souvenirs from their career milestones to appreciate and relect on later in life. For NHL players, they usually choose to keep the pucks that were used to achieve those milestones. Unfortunately for Calgary Flames’ rookie Corban Knight, that task becomes a little tougher when a linesman unknowingly tosses the special puck into...

One of these games, if the situation arises, Calgary Flames head coach Bob Hartley is finally going to use the gritty right-winger in his list of shootout candidates.
At least, he hopes so.

There has been one certain aspect of this Calgary Flames team which I simply have not been able to decide upon when it comes to their successes, and that is whether the team has really developed a strong chemistry together, or if other teams simply take them too lightly.
I know I have likely discussed it a few times too many this year, but...
Congratulation to Former Fighting Sioux forward Corban Knight, who scored his first NHL goal of his career, in his fifth NHL game. Knight played on the Flames fourth line logging a total of 9:39 tonight. If you look at the Flames roster, you will see a nice representation of former college hockey players.

The trade deadline has passed, in surprisingly spectacular fashion. As the dust settles on the moves that were, focus returns to the traded players as, well, hockey players, as opposed to as trade chips. With regard to those that did not move, however, and whose contributions as players will mean nothing to a Stanley Cup pursuit, there is a...
An official’s error almost robbed Calgary Flames rookie Corban Knight of the opportunity to take home proof of his first NHL goal.
The goal itself was never in doubt — it clearly beat dejected Anaheim Ducks goalie Frederik Andersen in the final minutes of the Flames’ 7-2 rout Thursday night. But as the 23-year-old Knight celebrated his milestone, linesman Lonnie Cameron scooped...

Bruce Boudreau knew what they were in for.
“They don’t play like they’re trying to end the season,” the head coach of the Anaheim Ducks was saying of the Calgary Flames at the morning skate prior to an 8 p.m. contest at the Scotiabank Saddledome. “We’ve played them six times since I’ve been here. Five of them have been one-goal games and then the 5-2 game last time...

Expected to be another tough game for the home team, the young Calgary Flames will be challenged with the Anaheim Ducks tonight as they look to secure another win since giving up two recent losses.
That being said, the Ducks themselves have had difficulties stringing together wins of late, having recently dropped a game to the Toronto Maple...
The only way to describe how the Ducks started off their three game road trip was disastrous. The 7-2 loss to the Calgary Flames was also embarrassing.
"We played like sh**," said Andrew Cogliano, who got his career high 20th goal of the season. "I think every guy in the room should be completely embarrassed about how they played tonight. Every single person...
