The Calgary Flames haven’t won a game at the Honda Center since January 19th, 2004. What was happening the last time they won in Anaheim?
The Calgary Flames lost against the Anaheim Ducks Sunday evening in a disappointing 4-1 loss. Why this game in particular was disappointing was because they broke an NHL record for most consecutive regular season losses in one building. It was previously held by the Pittsburgh Penguins at the Spectrum, the arena in Philadelphia at the time, with 23 consecutive losses.
The last time the Flames won a regular season game at the Honda Center was January 19, 2004. So what was happening on January 19, 2004? Well, people were interested too, and took to Twitter to talk about the last time the Flames won in Anaheim.
Fun fact: Twitter wasn’t invented yet.
Another fun fact: That was the year Flames were Western Conference champions. The first time since 1989.
We actually put out an article on this here on Flame for Thought, mentioning what the players on the Flames were doing in 2004, and vice versa, if you’d like to have a read. That was when I was happier in life. Before the Flames’ 24th consecutive loss.
Here are some notable tweets people came up with:
Now that the record has been broken, that means the curse is also broken, right?
