Ill give periodic updates as to the Flames throughout this year. I know you all can't wait for them too.

Started out with a 3-2 loss to a new, improved Philly squad. The Gangne/Briere/Knuble line was a the goods. 2 goals for Briere in the season opener. Their line went for a combined +6/ 3 goals/ 3 assists. And its not often a team comes into the Saddledome and gets a victory.

Despite that, the Flames played two periods of better hockey. And its the season opener.

Kipper was on today. Thats a bad sign for opponents.

Haven't really had time to watch too many games lately, but over the past two games, our play has improved dramatically. Iggy and his line are starting to heat up. Aucion looks like he can adequately fill the hole in the D left by Brad Stuart in the offseason. And although Kipper's stats are not up to his usual, his play has been solid.

I'm not really sure why Keenan hasn't been playing Regehr as much as he should be. He's only averaged 19:46 minutes so far this year compared to his career average of 22:28 minutes. That's almost a good three to four shifts. For all I know though, it could just be Keenan is easing him into the season and testing out his knee that he injured last playoffs.

And so far Phaneuf has averaged 27:48 minutes ice time. That's just ridiculous. He has played 28 minutes or more in 3 of 5 games. I hope Keenan doesn't wear him out.

Looking for our third win in a row tonight against a hot Dallas squad.

Go Flames, Go!

My biggest issue with Calgary is Keenan. IMO, they are as talented as anyone in the West but I believe Keenan will wear on his players in due time. Hockey is one of the few sports that is worse then the NFL or MLB when it comes to recycling head coaches.

Yeah, not really a big fan of him either. I like his hardass attitude and the discipline he brings, but he's not really a good coach. I think he is here for two reasons: get them to the playoffs and teach Playfair how to coach like a hardass.

I expect Playfair to be handed the job as soon as Sutter feels he is ready, because he was def not ready last year. And I could see a last year's Devils kind of coaching situation with this year's Flames. Keenan gets them into the playoffs, and Sutter takes the reigns once they're in.

And Flames blew a 4 goal lead last night only to lose in the shootout. Dissapointing, but its all apart of the ebbs and flows of hockey.

Battle of Alberta tonight. For those of you who enjoy hardnosed, physical, passionate hockey watch this. The BoA is always entertaining and clearly demonstrates why hockey is better when ugly and gritty.

Flames went on to win the BoA 4-1.

Some impressive wins after that against Minnesota and Nashville. Although also some dissapointing losses to Detroit and San Jose and Colorado in OT. Game against Minnesota on the 24th was a great win. Down 3 goals after the first. Phaneuf fights Veilleux at the end of the first. From then on we were a different team. We ended up scoring 5 answered goals in the second and third. The fight was the definite turning point in the game.

Iginla is playing at a worldly level right now. He looks like a man possessed each shift.

Tight game with the Wild currently going on. 3-1 Wild are up with 15 minutes left in the 3rd. Iginla scored the Flames lone goal and with that has 21 points on the season.

We've been playing decent hockey but can't seem to put it all together lately. Some kinks to work out, but I like what I'm seeing so far.

Oh, boy. We've had a tough stretch for the past couple weeks. In fact, I was waiting for a couple rebound games to post an update, but looks like that won't happen.

10-12-3 overall record and 4-6-0 in our last 10. Lost a tough game to the Red Wings 5-3 on the 27th. Can't blame anything on the refs, but they sure seemed to swallow the whistle. A couple definite penalties which went uncalled. Biggest positive out of the game was Dion's hit on Jiri Hudler. Absolutely leveled him. Andreas Lilja, being the good teammate, dropped the gloves with Dion. It was a terrible fight, though. Lilja seemed content in only hugging Dion. Andreas....if you're gonna drop 'em, go all out.

Jarome still is playing at an insane pace. He's currently on a 108 point pace.

Hopefully better news next time.

Sidney and the Pens came into the Saddledome tonight and escaped with a shootout victory. Final 3-2.

Iginla with another two goals in the losing effort. Kipper was solid tonight, but still not himself. He made a couple amazing saves, but also was out of position a couple times. He's taking longer than I thought to right the ship, but I have no doubt that he eventually will.

Shootouts continue to be a weak spot for this Flames team. Kipper might be one of the worst shootout goalies in the league and after Huselius and Tanguay we really lack guys who can dangle with the puck.

In Sidney's first trip to Calgary he was rather unimpressive. Registered zero points and only two shots on net. Still, it was good to see him play in one of the best hockey atmospheres in the league. He was even cheered when he first stepped onto the ice (only to be booed later during the shootout).

Robyn Regehr took a shot off his foot early in the game and didn't return. If he is out for a prolonged period, that could be terrible news.

Overall, good to see Sid and even better, good to get a point when we desperately needed it.

It wasn't a very good move having Keenan paired with Huselius again...it was Keenan after all that buried him in Florida and basically ran him out of there to Calgary. The guy finally has a breakout season last year and now he has to deal with Keenan again? Supposedly they are having issues, as if anyone couldn't have seen that coming.

BTW, Regehr has a broken ankle. Looks like he'll miss 4-6 weeks. This is a huge loss.


Nevermind on that. Jumped the gun. Looks like just a bad bruise and he is listed as day-to-day.

Whew!!! That's a huge relief.

Jarome Iginla = Mr. Clutch

In the Panthers-Flames game on December 11th, he scored the game tying goal with 10.2 seconds left. The Flames went on to win in the shootout with Huselius getting the only shootout goal.

Iginla has 17 goals and 22 assists on the season.

Kipper is back to playing like his usual self. Bad news for the rest of the league, great news for the Flames. As important as Iggy is for us, Kipper is ten times more important. Without him, the Flames are bottom-feeders.

Good news on Regehr. He played 22+ minutes in the Florida game.

Good game a week ago against Carolina, but Calgary needs to give credit to Cam Ward for their win. Ward was not good at all, and after a hot 1st month has been pretty mediocre for the last 30 or so days.
