Flames 4, Jets 1: Special teams prove pivotal in Game 1 victory

August 2, 2020 - 9:58 AM ET

Follow me on Twitter @ToddCordell A few takeaways from G1 of Calgary vs Winnipeg: 1) I don’t think the game was as one-sided as the scoreline would make you think. In particular, the Flames struggled at times during 5v5 play. They did outshoot the Jets by four, however, that was also mislead...

The Calgary Flames are going to the (actual) playoffs

August 7, 2020 - 9:42 AM ET

Follow me on Twitter @ToddCordell Five notes from Calgary’s series clinching win over Winnipeg: 1) They say you need your best game to eliminate a team from the playoffs. The Flames definitely brought it last night. They were all over the Jets from the get go and mostly able to sustain that...
