Calgary Flames Information
The Calgary Flames entered the NHL in 1972 and play in the Northwest Division of the Western Conference. In their franchise history, the Flames have won three Conference Championships, and won their first and only Stanley Cup in the 1988-89 season.
Since the 2004-2005 NHL Lockout, Calgary has produced winning seasons but has failed to make it past the Conference Quarterfinals. In May of 2009, head coach Mike Keenan was fired and Bret Sutter was named to replace him just one month later. That season, the Flames were eliminated from playoff contention just one week before the postseason started. They didnâ€™t make the playoffs again in the 2010-11 season or the 2011-12 season.
