The Flames began as the Atlanta Flames in 1972 before moving to Calgary in 1980. They have reached the Stanley Cup Finals 3 times in 1986, 1989, and 2004. Winning two Stanley Cups in 1986, and 2004 on Martin Gelinas no-called goal in game 6.
The Calgary Flames' biggest rival is the Vancouver Canucks. Edmonton Oiler fans seem to think that the Calgary Flames are their rival, however, they can only really have rivals once they have achieved a level of playoff status that has been relatively unheard of in Edmonton for almost a decade (save a run in 2006, of whom, all the star players have left the team shortly thereafter).
Also synonymous with: perfection, achievement through hard work and sacrifice, and an Oilers fan's nightmare.
Calgary Flames Fan: How about we set our
differences aside and enjoy a shot of
whisky so we can live in peace, finally, as Alberta hockey fans?
Edmonton Oilers Fan: Sounds good
