LHJMQ Second Round Preview

The town lives and breathes for that league, one of three leagues that constitute the CHL (With the Ontario Hockey [...]

Calgary Flames: Final Push For The Playoffs (a bit late…)

All right, first of all I’ve been MIA for the last couple of weeks, and i’m sorry for that readers. My life’s been a Roller Coaster lately and when I did catch a break, the flames kept on loosing. Just didn’t feel like it. To be honest, I’ve also been really pissed at the team [...]

Calgary Flames: Shutout VS Philly = Trade!

The first game against Colorado, which [...]

Calgary Flames: Is This The Year???

Welcome to the Calgary Flames blog. I’ll be following the flames for you this season, right until the Stanley Cup I hope.
First a little about me, I’m from Quebec City, and when the Nordiques left town in 1995, I had to choose another team to cheer for. I had two conditions, it [...]
