Win and you’re in. That’s the early message for the goaltenders in the first week of the Calgary Flames season. Head coach Bob Hartley said Joey MacDonald will be in the net when the Flames meet the Vancouver Canucks in Sunday’s home-opener at the Saddledome (6 p.m. Sportsnet West Sportsnet FAN 960). Karri Ramo was between the pipes for Thursday’s season-opening 5-4 shootout loss to the Washington Capitals while MacDonald came up with 29-save performance in the 4-3 win over the Columbus Blue Jackets the next night. In fact no lineup changes are expected for the Flames with forwards Michael Cammalleri (hand) and Matt Stajan (leg) on the shelf. Cammalleri’s been sidelined since the first pre-season game while Stajan was hurt in the season-opener with no hard-and-fast return date for either having been set.

NHL 14 accidentally leaks Calgary Flames new third jerseys

This is not the first time a video game has spilled the beans on a team’s new jerseys and it probably won’t be the last time.  The Calgary Flames third jersey had previously been “locked” so all you saw was a jersey with a lock on it, but a new roster download made these third jerseys appear.  The Calgary Flames had done a good job keeping the secret, but it looks like...

Calgary Flames third jerseys leak online

These appear to be the Calgary Flames’ third jerseys for this season, brought to us by NHL 14. The red jerseys feature ‘Calgary’ in script across the front with the flaming “C” logo right below it. I think the jersey would be a lot better without the “C” underneath and , though they’re not the worst, I’m not a huge fan of these unis. [Phil Hecken] The post Calgary...

Flames’ Stajan out week-to-week with leg contusion

Rumor: Flyers Are Interested in Flames’ Glencross

Frank Seravalli of the Philadelphia Daily News is reporting that the Flyers are interested in acquiring forward Curtis Glencross from the Calgary Flames.

Canucks-Flames Preview

Though it's still early, the Calgary Flames are proving the naysayers wrong. Promising rookie Sean Monahan is a big reason why. The Flames try to build on an encouraging start in Sunday night's home opener against the Vancouver Canucks. Picked by many to finish at the bottom of the Pacific Division, Calgary (1-0-1) has surprised in the early going. After picking up a point...

Flames blow two three-goal leads, lose 5-4 in a shootout to Capitals

It served as the ideal place for a coach’s cop-out. To mumble something about a moral victory. About taking out positives about finding silver linings. About his group taking manly strides — in a hostile environment in the first appearance of the regular season. But Bob Hartley in the morning had insisted that he would not take the easy way out this winter. And hours later...
