There’s no points for how you look while winning, which is good because this was an U_G-L-Y win for the Flames. But a win is a win. Brian Elliott looked like the goalie they traded for tonight as Calgary beat the Flyers tonight 3-1 at the Saddledome. The Flames were down 1-0 early, but didn’t cave and they managed to get 2 points in a game where they probably didn’t deserve them. But hey, they all can’t be pretty. Time to Rate The Flames!

Recap: Calgary Flames (3) vs Philadelphia Flyers (1)

There’s the Brian Elliott the Flames traded for! Calgary Flames 3 Philadelphia Flyers 1 The Flames welcomed the Flyers to the Saddledome for their only visit to Calgary on the heels of their BRUTAL loss to the Coyotes on Monday 5-0. The Flames are, by some miracle, only 1 point out of the final playoff spot in the West and they looked to close the gap a little as they entertained the always tough Flyers. It wasn’t pretty, but there’s no spot on the score sheet for style points. 1st Period The Flyers opened the scoring early in the first period, like 90 seconds in early, as Nick...

Brian Elliott or Chad Johnson? What Would You Do?

Brian Elliott or Chad Johnson? What Would You Do?

Looking at two portions of the year that feature interesting numbers Back in training camp, things seemed so simple. The Flames had two shiny new goaltenders coming into the organization after last season’s debacle and things were looking up. Brian Elliott and Chad Johnson were to be two solid goaltenders that could steal games for the team, and help get the Flames over the hump. Elliott was the undoubted #1 goalie, with Johnson to serve as his backup. Then the season began. The Flames opened with two poor performances from Elliott where he allowed nine goals in the two games on a total...
3 Things from Week 17

3 Things from Week 17

Bad Dennis Wideman, Sean Monahan scoring at will, is Elliott still the #1? Photo by Matthew Stockman/ Dennis Wideman, Not The Best Week Dennis Wideman has had a bad season and this week was about as bad as it gets. The veteran defenceman had only 1 point this week and played some suspect defence and that’s being kind. Wideman (I was there) was on the ice for at least 2 of the Devils goals Friday night and a penalty he took lead to NJ’s game tying 3rd goal. Fast forward to Sunday and Wideman semi screened Brian Elliott on a soft goal that Elliott probably should...

Flames Need to Capitalize on Goalie Market

Throughout the season, there have been some bright spots for the Calgary Flames’ Elliott-Johnson goaltending duo, but you would be hard-pressed to say they’ve been good. The pair has been inconsistent, and though Calgary’s defence has been more of a liability than an asset, the Flames’ goaltenders haven’t helped. Brian Elliott came into the season as a […]

Calgary Flames complete season sweep over Ottawa Senators with 3-2 overtime victory

Wingels scores in his Ottawa debut The Senators probably should’ve done better against the faltering Flames, but then again, they probably should’ve played better to get a better result. They earned a point they probably didn’t deserve in a 3-2 OT loss. The Flames actually came into the game sounding like the Senators of yore. Their stars were struggling, they had lost four in a row, they had let in the first goal of the game nine games in a row, and they featured Brian Elliott, Alex Chiasson, and Dave Cameron. The first period was pretty boring. Ottawa had the better run of play,...

Is bringing back Brian Elliott nuts or what?

Is bringing back Brian Elliott nuts or what?

Thank you very much, Matt Larkin. Your Hockey News piece sparked a conversation, a few short walks around my block, and a whiskey sip at noon. Should the St. Louis Blues pull the “what in the ass” move of the year by bringing back Brian Elliott six months after trading him away? It’s not a terrible idea, as Larkin thoroughly points out. Let me tell you what I think. I wouldn’t be against it, and it may be a rightful kick in the ass to the Blues. Is it going to happen? No way, but who are we to work in the shadows of common sense at such a fun hour of hockey speculation. Elliott is...
