Sergei Belski-USA TODAY SportsThe potential on this team could make for some good hockey this year. The pre-season has ended and the regular season has started. Throughout the first few games of the regular season, I have some thoughts. 1. It’s quite clear to me now that the Flames were preparing Rasmus Andersson to take over the hole that was left in the defence by the departure of Mark Giordano. And Andersson has stepped up. He pushes the boundaries of defense, he steps up for his teammates, and he sacrifices himself in front of his goalie. He’s young, strong, and has integrated himself easily into the Flames lineup since the beginning which has led to his defensive prowess. Hopefully he can keep the pace thro

The Calgary Flames just keep on keeping on. The recipe has been pretty simple. Start on time, get up early, weather a storm, and then get back to solid road hockey and secure the two points. We saw it in Detroit. We saw it in Washington, and then again in Manhattan but could they pull […]

The Calgary Flames have not trailed in a hockey game since the season opener. Flames fans may have a hard time comprehending that little nugget, given the team’s history of poor starts to games and seasons. But then, who would expect anything less from a team that possesses two lads atop the NHL’s scoring lead? Yes, another hard-to-fathom fact, as Andrew Mangiapane and Elias Lindholm tied Alex Ovechkin with their seventh goals of the year in Tuesday’s 5-3 win in New Jersey. While both Flames snipers have played a significant role in the team’s four-game win streak, scoring first has done well to pave the way. Milan Lucic scored early Tuesday, marking the fourth-straight game on this road trip the Flames have struck first. It allowed the Flames to closely f

Photo by Bruce Bennett/Getty ImagesThe poor NJ goalie’s first shot faced was a streaking Andrew Mangiapane. Highlight Of The Night Calgary Flames 5 - NJ Devils 3 Listen, Andrew Mangiapane is good, so be prepared for him to be the HOTN many times this season. And let’s be honest: I don’t think anyone has a problem with that. Mangiapane deposited two more goals in the back on an NHL net tonight and both of them were worthy of being in this spot, but his second goal was a thing of beauty. He was positioned perfectly. Patient with the puck. Waited out Devils goalie Scott Wedgewood. And finally tucked the puck past him to give the Flames a 4-0 lead. Che
