In the Calgary Flames’ inaugural season they made the playoffs and won their first two series. In the 5-game preliminary round the Flames swept the Chicago Blackhawks. In the Quarterfinals they needed all seven games to eliminate the Philadelphia Flyers. In the Semifinals they fell in 6 to the Dallas Stars. Five years later, having been in the playoffs six years in a row, they went all the way to the 1986 Stanley Cup Final, losing in five to the Montreal Canadiens after handing walking papers to the Winnipeg Jets, Edmonton Oilers and the St. Louis Blues. Three years later they worked their way through the Vancouver Canucks, Los Angeles Kings and Chicago Blackhawks to a rematch in the Finals with the Montreal Canadiens. This time they won it all. The team did not return to the Finals for fifteen years, missing the playoffs eight times and losing in the first round six times. When they did return to the Finals in 2004 the Calgary Flames battled past the Canucks, Detroit Red Wings and San Jose Sharks before falling to the Tampa Bay Lightning in a punishing 7 game series.
In the three seasons since the 2004-05 lockout the Calgary Flames have always made it to the playoffs and never made it out of the first round, losing to the Anaheim Ducks in 2006, the Detroit Red Wings in 2007 and the San Jose Sharks in 2008.
