More about Calgary Flames tickets
 
Though they've been calling Calgary home since the early 1980's, this now proud Canadian franchise actually has its roots in Atlanta, GA. The Atlanta Flames began play in 1972, and remained in the southern United States until the beginning of the 1980-81 NHL season.

The fans of Calgary were obviously ready for an NHL franchise, and the city embraced the team unlike the way they snubbed the unfortunately Calgary Cowboys, a WHA franchise that had previously been given the cold shoulder by fans in the western Canadian city. Fans snapped up season tickets in droves, and the miniscule 7,000 seat Corral was full to bursting every night.

The Flames wouldn't waste any time endearing themselves to their new fanbase. Fueled by a spectacular 131 point season by Swedish superstar Kent Nilsson, the club made the playoffs it very first season in the city. The would go on to beat both the Chicago Blackhawks and the Philadelphia Flyers that year, before eventually bowing out to the Minnesota North Stars in the semi-finals.

Though they had a couple of tough years after that, GM Cliff Fletcher was busy making moves, improving his team dramatically by bringing in such talent as Joel Otto, Gary Suter, Lanny McDonald, Al MacInnis, Mike Vernon and Dan Quinn. This core group gelled quickly, and in the 1986 playoffs pulled off one of the most stunning upsets in NHL history when they knocked out Wayne Gretzky and his Edmonton Oilers teammates in seven games. Oilers fans blame Steve Smith's own goal on Grant Fuhr for the loss, but it wasn't though the series was single game elimination. Calgary had already won three other games before Smith's gaff ever occurred.

That group of players, with a near perfect blend of grit and talent, made it all the way to the Stanley Cup Finals that year, before finally bowing out to the Montreal Canadiens in five games.

Calgary Gets Their Stanley Cup

Over the next few seasons the Flames would prove that 1986 playoff run was no fluke. Joining the aforementioned crew in Calgary Flames jerseys was Joe Nieuwendyk, who became only the second rookie in league history to that point to score 50+ goals, netting 51 in the 1986-87 season. In 1988-89 the diminutive, but brash and supremely talented Theoren Fleury would join the mix. An unsurpassed agitator with a slick set of hands, Fleury would make a huge impact in the latter half of the season. Perhaps the most crucial move was the monumental trade engineered by Cliff Fletcher that season. The six player deal brought Doug Gilmour to town. Gilmour would score 85 points in 72 regular season games and add 22 points in 22 games in the post-season during their 1989 playoff run.

With skill to burn up front in Gary Roberts, Theo Fleury, Joe Nieuwendyk, Doug Gilmour, Joel Otto and an aging Lanny McDonald the Flames had the most balanced attack in the league. With Al MacInnis and Gary Suter manning the point their powerplay was lethal. In net Mike Vernon was at the peak of his ability, and on the rare occasion the opposing team got a chance to counterattack, Vernon was there kicking out puck after puck. In short the Flames were a powerhouse team.

The Flames captured their second straight President's Trophy in 1989, earning a franchise record 117 points in the regular season. The timing couldn't have been any more perfect for a deep playoff run. With the powerhouse Edmonton Oilers reeling following Gretzky's trade to the Los Angeles Kings the Campbell Conference was ripe for the picking, and the Flames took full advantage. After surviving a first round scare in which the Vancouver Canucks took them to a full seven games the Flames walked through the second and third rounds, defeating the Los Angeles Kings and the Chicago Blackhawks in four and five games respectively.

In the finals they faced their toughest opponent. The Montreal Canadiens had finished second overall in the league, just two points shy of the Flames with 115. The Habs were once again led by standout netminder Patrick Roy, who had stymied the Flames three years previous en route to earning a Conn Smythe Trophy as playoff MVP. This time the Flames would not be denied. Their pinpoint passing, their balanced attack, and their grit and determination was in the end, too much for the Habs, who would lose the series 4 games to 2. Ac MacInnis was all but unstoppable during that playoff run, leading all scorers with 31 points, setting an NHL playoff record for a defenseman by scoring points in 17 consecutive games and capturing the Conn Smythe Trophy. Appropriately, aging veteran Lanny McDonald, one of the most beloved characters in the game, scored the Stanley Cup winning goal.

The 2004 Cup Run

Over the next few seasons the Flames would slowly start to sink out of the picture among the league's elite, giving way to teams like the Pittsburgh Penguins, New Jersey Devils and New York Rangers. As they slipped in the standings, attendance dipped. Stars like Doug Gilmour and Joe Nieuwendyk left for greener pastures with the Toronto Maple Leafs and Dallas Stars respectively. However, the departure of Nieuwendyk, though a dagger through the hearts of Flames fans at the time, would prove to be one of the most significant moments in the history of the franchise. The deal that sent Nieuwendyk to the Stars brought a young star by the name of Jarome Iginla, and though it was a risk to deal a proven star for one that had yet to make a name for himself, in hindsight the deal has turned out to be a pretty darn good one for the Flames.

Iginla has since gone on to assume the captaincy of the Flames, and has been one of the most feared power forwards in the game for a decade now. In 2004 Iginla led the Flames to the very cusp of glory. Reminiscent of a 1994 Mark Messier, Iginla willed his team through the playoffs, sacrificing himself physically and delivering on the scoreboard, doing whatever it took to win. His teammates emulated Iginla's brash style, and their workmanlike approach, coupled with world-class goaltending by Finnish netminder Miikka Kiprusoff, helped the Flames make it all the way to game 7 of the Stanley Cup Finals that year.

The Flames would lose that fateful game 7 against Vincent Lecavalier and the Tampa Bay Lightning, though any diehard Flames fan will tell you that the series should have ended in OT of game six in Calgary, when a Martin Gelinas-directed puck certainly appeared to cross the line. The miracle run marked the last hockey for the better part of a year and a half, and the Flames and their fans were forced to wait to see if they could take that final step when the puck finally dropped after the NHL lockout of 2004-05.

Today's Calgary Flames

As it turned out, they couldn't. Though highly touted blue chip defensive prospect Dion Phaneuf pulled on a Calgary Flames sweater for the first time following the lockout, the team just couldn't seem to recapture the hard-working spirit that had got them to within a waved off goal of Stanley Cup glory. Bringing in star players like Alex Tanguay, Olli Jokinen, Jay Bouwmeester and Kristian Huselius, and coaches like Mike Keenan and Brent Sutter hasn't worked either. The Flames are still a very good team on paper, but have been unable to put it together come playoff time. In a tough conference where they are matched up against teams like the defending Stanley Cup champion Chicago Blackhawks, the Vancouver Canucks, Detroit Red Wings and San Jose Sharks the task won't be any easier this season. However, with arguably the game's best leader in Iginla and a goalie that is as good as anybody when he's on top of his game, the Flames still remain a threat, and though they may be a darkhorse it certainly isn't inconceivable they have another long cup run in them.
