By Deb Chrisohou Dear Mayor Naheed Nenshi.  Please mark me down as part of the .000003 per cent of Calgarians who would like to see a new sports/event centre in Calgary. I am a born and raised Calgarian who has supported amateur and professional sport in this city throughout my life. I am also an avid supporter of the arts and have attended professional and amateur theatre and music concerts. I am fortunate that I have been employed in a modest position that allows me the means to be a season ticket holder for both the Calgary Flames and the Stampeders, in addition to Theatre Calgary. I love sports and the arts and I make it a priority to support both by purchasing tickets and volunteering for various events and fundraising efforts.

The Washington Capitals had no trouble handling the red-hot Calgary Flames and came out of Verizon Center with a 4-2 win Tuesday. With the victory, the Capitals moved back into their lone first place spot in the Metropolitan Division and the NHL. They also ensured that the Flames remained in the top wild-card spot in the Western Conference, as they stay fourth in the Pacific Division. First Period The Capitals opened the scoring about six minutes into the opening frame. As the Flames tried to make it through the neutral zone, Andre Burakovsky stepped up and stripped the Flames of the puck. Then, he fed a nice pass to Evgeny Kuznetsov, who sent it past Brian Elliott to give Washington a 1-0 lead. Burakovsky picked up his 20th assist of the season and has points in two consecutive games since returning from injury.

Beating top teams on the road is a tough task, a task that comes with a pretty firm game plan. Paramount on that bullet list is to stay out of the box when you’re playing the Capitals as their 8th ranked powerplay is ultra dangerous with the soft passing Niklas Backstrom, the rocket launcher in […]

WASHINGTON — Alex Ovechkin had a goal and two assists, T.J. Oshie scored his 30th of the season and the NHL-leading Washington Capitals defeated the surging Calgary Flames 4-2 on Tuesday night.

Calgary Flames Outmatched by Washington Capitals, Fall 4-2

I would not even say that Trotz’s Capitals were gaming their Corsi, either. After a tight first period, the Washington Capitals took over with a completely dominant second period which saw them get 20 shots and 2 goals. The Calgary Flames played better in the third but it was not enough and they fell to the Capitals by a score of 4-2. First Period The Flames were facing a big test against a very good Washington Capitals squad who have been dominant at home this season. Calgary were down a couple of key contributors for this matchup. Matthew Tkachuk was missing his first of two games due to his suspension for his elbow on Drew Doughty. Meanwhile, Micheal Ferland was still out with what may or may not be the mumps. As a result, Curtis Lazar was back in for his secon

Eastern leading Capitals double up playoff-pushing Flames 4-2

The Washington Capitals were the first NHL team to clinch a playoff spot and it didn’t take long for the Calgary Flames to realize why. The Capitals scored two goals in the second period to take a 3-1 lead, while Alex Ovechkin punctuated the 4-2 victory by ripping a rocket of a shot with 2:51 remaining in the final frame. Deryk Engelland and Troy Brouwer teamed up to cut the Capitals’ lead to one goal with 4:56 remaining in the third period but they simply couldn’t contain No. 8 who, by the way, entered the game with 20 points (nine goals and 11 assists) in 13 career games against Calgary. The loss ended the incredible run of Flames netminder Brian Elliott, who had his personal 11-game win streak snapped, leaving him tied with Mike Vernon for the longest spree in franchise history. The last time Elliott had an L tagged to his name was Feb. 18’s 2-1 overtime loss to the Vancouver Canucks. And, for the most part, this loss could not be tagged on th

Tkachuk's 'going to have to learn' from suspension

Matthew Tkachuk served the first game of a two-game suspension on Tuesday against the Washington Capitals. And, like it or not, the Calgary Flames are forced to deal with the 19-year-old rookie’s absence after the NHL’s Department of Player Safety handed out the sentence for an elbow to the head of Los Angeles Kings defenceman Drew Doughty. “While we are disappointed with the league’s verdict, we nonetheless respect the process and that the league has issued its ruling,” Brad Treliving said in a statement released by the team. “Both the Flames and Matthew accept the decision. Our sole focus now is on preparing for our game tonight in Washington, while Matthew will spend the next few days getting ready to return to the line-up on Saturday in St. Louis.” Consider it a lesson learned for the hard-nosed left winger who went into Tuesday’s action sitting fifth in team scoring with 13 goals and 33 assists. “He plays hard and plays in the corn
