Flames top trio looking to ‘get line going again’

Slowed down. But not shut down. It’s been that kind of a few weeks for the Calgary Flames’ No. 1 line of Johnny Gaudreau, Sean Monahan and Elias Lindholm. Since the NHL All-Star Game, it hasn’t seemed as easy for the team’s top forward unit to find the target behind opposition goaltenders as it was […]

Calgary Flames (3) @ Vancouver Canucks (4) (SOL): Markstrom steals the show

Canucks tender makes 44 saves in lopsided game Calgary Flames 3 - Vancouver Canucks 4 (SO) Recap Saturday saw the Flames lose a frustrating game to Pacific rival, the Vancouver Canucks.

The Flames Defence Is Up In The Air For Tonight

Travis Hamonic skated yesterday, but Calgary is still unsure of his status, which means the D pairings are all over the place.

5 Forwards the Flames Could Target at the Deadline

On their way to unexpectedly leading the Western Conference, the Calgary Flames have leaned on five dominant 50-point players: Johnny Gaudreau, Sean Monahan, Matthew Tkachuk, Elias Lindholm and Mark Giordano. Meanwhile, their secondary scoring is another question. Their bottom-six has been inconsistent, coach Bill Peters has yet to find a second-line right winger he likes and […] The post 5 Forwards the Flames Could Target at the Deadline appeared first on The Hockey Writers.

First Game Back And Mike Smith Is In Net

Mike Smith gets the call after the LONG break. In a somewhat surprising move Bill Peters has decided to go with Mike Smith in net as the Flames visit the Washington Capitals Friday night in their first game back from the 9 game break. One reason could be that Bill Peters is saving David Rittich for the Carolina game on Sunday afternoon. Here's the rest of the Flames lineup for Friday night: FORWARDS Johnny Gaudreau - Sean Monahan - Elias Lindholm Matthew Tkachuk - Mikael Backlund - Michael Frolik Sam Bennett - Mark Jankowski - James Neal Andrew Mangiapane - Derek Ryan - Garnet...
