Cammy's 20th leads Flames to victory over Sabres

There’s more than one NHL GM giving himself a well-deserved swift kick to the posterior. Michael Cammalleri was available at the trade deadline earlier this month. But Calgary Flames interim-GM Brian Burke wasn’t willing to part with the pint-sized sniper for anything less than market value. All Cammalleri has done since the deadline is pile up a half-dozen goals — including...

Clarke MacArthur smokes Jiri Hudler and a scrum ensues

The fact that no one was given a major penalty is kind of puzzling, to me. Senators forward Clarke MacArthur smokes Flames forward Jiri Hudler with a nice clean, crisp, body check and then the melee ensues. This is what the boxscore looked like after the scrum was over.00:19 CGY Chris Butler Roughing - 2 min against Clarke MacArthur 00:19 CGY Chris Butler Roughing - 2 min...

Flames’ trade deadline primer: Burke has some pieces to move as rebuilding process continues

History, now, are the Olympic Games. Next up? The Obvious Games. Because for rebuilding outfits, such as the Calgary Flames, the days leading up to the National Hockey League trade deadline hold little mystery. Their motivation is selling. There’s no other way. Brian Burke, back from Sochi, has until March 5 — a little more than a week — to transform outgoing assets into...

Rebuilding In Calgary

from Eric Francis of the Calgary Sun, ... ever since Christmas, the Flames, with a nod to NFL coach Dennis Green, “are what we thought they were.”  It’s no knock on the current cast of characters caught in the state of flux the Flames will likely find themselves over the next two or three years.

Chris Butler lifts Calgary Flames over Carolina Hurricanes in overtime

“The mentality on the bench was very different after we gave up that goal than it’s been in the past,” Butler said. “We’ve been a little bit fragile, but I thought guys did a good job stepping up right after we gave up that goal. “We didn’t panic, we didn’t go into a shell and I think that’s a positive step for us.” Flames netminder Karri Ramo finished the night...
