Editorial Reviews

The Calgary Flames have played in over 200 Stanley Cup Playoff games in their history, a legacy that includes one championship and countless memories. From the earliest days when they settled in Alberta, led by legends like Kent Nilsson, Lanny McDonald and Joey Mullen, the Flames have experienced many magical moments. From rugged installments of the Battle of Alberta against rival Edmonton, to sudden-death heroics and stirring comebacks, the Flames have captured the imagination and emotion of an entire city. From Joe Nieuwendyk to Gary Roberts, and on to Jarome Iginla and Dion Phaneuf, a long line of hockey heroes have called Calgary home. Now, for the first time, the Calgary Flames' 10 Greatest Playoff Games are available in a single box set, a must-have for any hockey fan.

3.0 out of 5 stars more Lame than Flame May 7, 2011
Given the info is lacking on the listing, I'll help Flames fans out, if you're considering buying this. Here're the games in the box set (and I'm not using the dopey NHL's Conference Semi-Final, Divisional Final nonsensial overblown series monikers) with the announcers (all games the Canadian CBC or CTV telecast bar the 2004 Canuck one which was the ESPN2 'cast):

1981 Quarter-Final, Game 7 vs. the Philadelphia Flyers (Bob Cole & Gary Dornhoefer)
1986 Quarter-Final, Game 7 vs. the Edmonton Oilers (the Steve Smith own goal game--Don Wittman & Gary Dornhoefer)
1986 Semi-Final, Game 7 vs. the St. Louis Blues (Dan Kelly & Ron Reusch)
1989 1st round, Game 7 vs. the Vancouver Canucks (Bob Cole & John Garrett)
1989 Final, Game 6 vs. the Montreal Canadiens (Bob Cole & Harry Neale)
1991 1st round, Game 6 vs. the Edmonton Oilers (the Theoren Fleury crazy celebration goal--Chris Cuthbert & Jim Peplinski)
2004 1st round, Game 7 vs. the Vancouver Canucks (Dave Strader & Brian Engblom)
2004 Quarter-Final, Game 6 vs. the Detroit Red Wings (Don Wittman & Glen Healy)
2004 Final, Game 5 vs. the Tampa Bay Lightning (Bob Cole & Harry Neale)
2008 1st round, Game 3 vs. the San Jose Sharks (Mark Lee & Craig Simpson)

The title of the box set is "10 Great Games" so they are not the "greatest" games but at least they should be exciting and entertaining you'd think. The choices are more the "10 Significant Games" as after watching some they are not all that great.

Although, the first year in Calgary brought an unexpected run (with Pat Riggin in goal!) to the semi-finals, the clinching game in the quarter-finals is a penalty-filled borefest in Philly.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great for Flames fans November 11, 2009
Verified Purchase
This is a great DVD set for any Calgary Flames fans with ten games, one on each disc.

Quality is very good considering the age of the earlier games, though disc 3 is a bit grainy. Commentaries are excellent but why was ESPN chosen for disc 7?

There are no special features: a short intro for each game would have been nice and maybe some interviews.

Beware that watching disc 9 against Tampa Bay, as good as it was, only serves to remind fans that the Flames did go on to lose the next two games and not win the Cup. That's why disc 5 is the precious one.

Enjoy!

4.0 out of 5 stars Flames November 17, 2009
Verified Purchase
I just got this DVD set to honour the memory of my late father, who was a Flames fan since they were in Atlanta. It brought back alot of memories of some of the forgotten games that my father and I watched, especially the game against the Edmonton Oilers.

4.0 out of 5 stars Calgary Flames Fans Get 10 DVD Collection September 22, 2013
You get 10 great playoff games (each on their own DVD). There are five Game 7's, three Game 6's, one Game 5, and one Game 3. The games are in standard definition (a format preserving the aspect ratio of its original television exhibition). My only complaint is that no special features (interviews, bonus supplements) are provided.

1981 Quarter-Final, Game 7 vs. the Philadelphia Flyers (Bob Cole & Gary Dornhoefer)
1986 Quarter-Final, Game 7 vs. the Edmonton Oilers (Steve Smith own goal game; Don Wittman & Gary Dornhoefer)
1986 Semi-Final, Game 7 vs. the St. Louis Blues (Dan Kelly & Ron Reusch)
1989 1st round, Game 7 vs. the Vancouver Canucks (Bob Cole & John Garrett)
1989 Final, Game 6 vs. the Montreal Canadiens (Bob Cole & Harry Neale)
1991 1st round, Game 6 vs. the Edmonton Oilers (Theoren Fleury crazy celebration goal; Chris Cuthbert & Jim Peplinski)
2004 1st round, Game 7 vs. the Vancouver Canucks (Dave Strader & Brian Engblom)
2004 Quarter-Final, Game 6 vs. the Detroit Red Wings (Don Wittman & Glen Healy)
2004 Final, Game 5 vs. the Tampa Bay Lightning (Bob Cole & Harry Neale)
2008 1st round, Game 3 vs. the San Jose Sharks (Mark Lee & Craig Simpson)

Buy this DVD. It is now out of print but well worth it to track down a copy as it has held its value. Eagerly awaiting Volume II.
