I’ll admit it … with each weak effort this season I’ve had a resounding feeling of the left shoe dropping, the Flames hot start coming to an end, and reality setting in. That feeling that the jig is up.

And like every other time, tonight after a stinker in Carolina the Flames served notice that they refuse to be that top five pick team this year, out playing the Arizona Coyotes from coast to coast in a 5-3 home ice victory.

That pinch me minute will have to wait! - Full Article –

Sometimes you can get away with spotty play as long as you work hard, never give up and get a bounce or two.

The Flames found that in both Washington and Florida, giving the team four points, and in the end a successful road trip, though both games could have gone the other way and resulted in misery.

Tonight their luck and bounces ran out, as the Hurricanes skated away with a fairly easy 4-1 victory over the Flames. - Full Article –

With a tough schedule to come, and the league paying notice to an upstart team that continues to hang around the playoff race despite being written off before the first puck drop of the season, you simply have to win games like these against teams like these, in situation like these.

Wins won’t be easy to come by when the Flames try to mine ore in their own division against teams from California, so you have to make hay when the hay is available, which the Flames found a way to do by coming from behind to beat the Florida Panthers 6-4 this afternoon. - Full Article –

Heck even three goal road losses are entertaining from this group this season.

The Flames lose, finally on the road tonight, dropping a 5-2 contest to the Tampa Bay Lightning in Florida on Thursday night, and honestly the better team won. However, despite the score, the Flames were in it, they kept it close, drove the play, hit some goal posts, gave up some goal posts and competed in an interesting back and forth hockey game. - Full Article –

This just keeps going doesn’t it?

The Flames battled bad bounces against, and then eventually received one for in a come from behind 4-3 overtime victory in Washington on Tuesday night. A game that has now given the Flames 9 points in the last 11 games, and pushes the team four games over .500 in the still young season.

Winning is as contagious as Johnny Gaudreau’s flu bug. Hopefully the former and not the latter passes its way through the upstart Flames. - Full Article –
