Dennis Wideman scored twice in the Flames 4-3 SO win over Anaheim on Tuesday.

The goals were the veterans’ sixth and seventh of the season and came back-to-back in the third period of a whale of a game against a good Ducks team. Jiri Hudler scored the other goal for the Flames who are the leaders in the NHL when it comes to third period scoring. Markus Granlund stayed hot in picking up two assists in the win as well.

Dennis Wideman lit the lamp for the Flames, but they still lost to the Capitals on Saturday night 3-1.

Wideman is on fire, with goals in four straight games, to give him five goals and six points on the year. While he is an offensive defenseman -- he recorded his 300th career point -- he won’t be shooting 31 percent for the entire season. Around 15 goals and 45 points is certainly possible with such a hot start. Kris Russell and Jiri Hudler got the assists. Brandon Bollig had 14 penalty minutes, while Curtis Glencross picked up 12.

Dennis Wideman has gotten back on Flames head coach Bob Hartley's good side.

Hartley surprised a lot of people when he decided to make Wideman a healthy scratch a couple weeks back. Wideman has been hot lately though with three goals and four points in four games. "Wides has been unbelievable," Hartley said. "He's playing great. He's jumping in the play. He's generating some good offence while playing good defense, and that's what we need."

Dennis Wideman scored the lone goal for the Flames in a 2-1 OT loss to the Lightning on Tuesday night.

Wideman opened the scoring for both teams on an early power-play for the Flames in this contest. The veteran d-man potted a one-timer opportunity set up by the whiz kid rookie Johnny Gaudreau. Kris Russell also picked up a helper on what would be the lone goal of the night for Calgary.

Dennis Wideman has returned to the Flames' lineup.

Wideman was a healthy scratch Thursday night. He had 21 points in 46 games last year. Raphael Diaz will take a seat.
Oct 11 - 7:14 PM

Calgary Flames coach Bob Hartley said Dennis Wideman was scratch on Thursday at his discretion and not due to an injury.

Just two games into the season and Hartley is already making statements. It worked though as Calgary went on to earn a 5-2 victory over Edmonton, so it will be interesting to see if Hartley immediately puts Wideman back into the lineup.

Dennis Wideman will surprisingly be scratched for the Flames on Thursday night.

He posted a minus-1 rating in 16:30 of ice time in Calgary's 4-2 loss to Vancouver in Wednesday's regular season opener. Wideman may have been banged up in the contest, but for now we'll assume he's healthy enough to play and this is a coach's decision.

Dennis Wideman is looking to hit the ground running after a disappointing season in 2013-14. To that end, he assisted on Sean Monahan's ripper of a snapshot in the third.

Wideman sent a cross-ice blue-line to blue-line pass to lead Paul Byron, who'd give Monahan the drop-pass before the goal. It was a thing of beauty start to finish. Wideman led the team in ice time with 23:02, including 5:36 on the powerplay and 2:30 on the kill.
Oct 3 - 1:54 AM

Dennis Wideman revealed that his previously undisclosed injury at the end of the 2013-14 campaign was a neck problem.

Wideman missed the final 20 games of the season because of it. He's feeling better now though and is a solid candidate to reach the 40-point mark if he stays healthy.

Dennis Wideman has recovered from the upper-body injury that caused him to miss the last 20 games of the 2013-14 campaign.

Wideman had four goals and 21 points in 46 games in 2013-14. He could reach the 40-point mark this season if he can stay healthy.

Dennis Wideman (upper body) won't return before the conclusion of the season.

Wideman will consequently finish the 2013-14 campaign with four goals and 21 points in 46 games. This was the second season of his five-year, $26.25 million contract with Calgary.
Apr 9 - 1:35 PM

Dennis Wideman is dealing with an upper-body injury.

The Calgary Flames have ruled Wideman out for Friday and Saturday's games. He has four goals and 21 points in 46 contests in 2013-14.
Mar 7 - 1:36 PM

Dennis Wideman recorded two assists in Calgary's 4-1 victory on Thursday.

Wideman didn't record a point in his previous five contests. He has a solid 17 points in 38 contests, but fantasy owners have also had to endure his minus-15 rating. Despite the Flames current four-game winning streak, Calgary is likely to resume its descent in the not too distant future and Wideman's plus/minus rating should go down further before the campaign's over.

Jan 31 - 9:20 AM

Dennis Wideman logged 38:05 minutes of ice time in Calgary's 3-2 shootout loss on Saturday.

That's what happens when you engage in a line brawl just two seconds into the contest. The officials, in an effort to prevent the game from devolving further, booted four Flames players immediately following the massive melee. That force the remaining players to be leaned on extensively and Wideman was one example of that. Of course, Calgary never needs an excuse to lean on the veteran defenseman, as they already ask him to log 24:59 minutes during an average game.
