Maple Leafs & Flames Need to Swap Hamonic for Kapanen

The Toronto Maple Leafs and Calgary Flames have a lot in common. Both teams suffered painful first-round playoff exits last season after thinking it may have been their year to go deep.

Dissecting the Flames’ Lack of High-End Offence This Season

The Calgary Flames relatively poor offensive production in the 2019-20 campaign has left both fans and sports journalists mystified – perhaps rightfully so. Notwithstanding several minor moves in the offseason – namely the James Neal – Milan Lucic swap and the addition of Cam Talbot in a backup goaltending role – last season’s roster has […] The post Dissecting the Flames’ Lack of High-End Offence This Season appeared first on The Hockey Writers.

At bye break, Flames optimistic they’re trending in right direction

It was a fair question. After Saturday’s loss to the lowly Ottawa Senators, a should-be free-space for any team that fancies itself a contender, Calgary Flames interim head coach Geoff Ward was asked if his squad might be fighting a bit of mental fatigue. It has, after all, been a rollercoaster campaign. So perhaps the […]

Flames struggle to find offence in loss to Senators

OTTAWA — Mark Jankowski’s season-long dry-spell is over. Finally. Now, if only the rest of the Calgary Flames could start finding the back of the net again. The Flames sputtered into their week-long bye/all-star break with Saturday’s 5-2 loss to the Ottawa Senators, a cellar-dwelling squad that had yet to win in 2020. With that […]

Hogberg’s 40-Save Performances Helps Lift Senators Past Flames 5-2

OTTAWA — Marcus Hogberg made 40 saves for the Ottawa Senators in a 5-2 win over the Calgary Flames on Saturday. The Senators (17-23-8) were outshot 42-21 and if not for Hogberg’s performance, they would have likely seen a different outcome. This marked the 25-year-old’s second NHL win in 13 career starts. The victory also allowed Ottawa to snap its nine-game […] The post Hogberg’s 40-Save Performances Helps Lift Senators Past Flames 5-2 appeared first on The Hockey Writers.

Sens Break Losing Streak, Defeat Flames 5-2

Sens Break Losing Streak, Defeat Flames 5-2

Photo by Andre Ringuette/NHLI via Marcus Högberg kept them in it, in spite of their awful defensive performance. Losing is never fun, even in a tanking season. It took a while for the Ottawa Senators to break their nine-game skid, but they did it in the scrappiest way possible against the Calgary Flames, beating them 5-2 for their first win of 2020. To say the Sens were outplayed would be an understatement. Especially earlier in the game, the lack of offensive zone time became increasingly frustrating to watch, with little effort being put in to make it past the Flames’ neutral zone...
