Bet On Calgary Flames Games
In a fierce turf battle with the upstart World Hockey Association (WHA) the NHL moved quicker on expansion than they wanted to when they added the New York Islanders and Atlanta Flames in 1972. Multiple Stanley Cup winners, things worked out well for the Islanders – the same can’t be said for the Flames. Despite making the NHL playoffs six of eight years in Atlanta, the Flames were snuffed out in Atlanta largely due to poor attendance. The fact that the Southern Flames went 2-15 during their 17 postseason contests helped douse some of the fan momentum that was gained by those second season appearances. Calgary beat out Houston and Dallas to claim the franchise.
Landing in the Stampede City, the Flames joined the CFL Calgary Stampeders as the second pro sports squad in southern Alberta. During their first three seasons, Calgary played in the Stampede Corral that held about 7,240 fans and was usually packed to capacity. Attracting load and raucous crowds, the party-like atmosphere helped handicappers who bet on Calgary during home games as the Flames lost just 32 of their 120 matches played at the Corral. Constructed as the crown jewel, and part of many facilities that are a lasting legacy of the 1988 Olympic Games, the Flames moved into the Olympic Saddledome (now the Scotiabank Saddledome) to open the 1983-84 NHL season.

Three years after their inaugural NHL 1986 Championship series loss to Montreal, the Flames claimed their first Stanley Cup by turning the table and beating the Canadians in 1989. The Flames flickered somewhat after that though as they made the playoffs six times over 19 years from 1997 to 2016.
