The Calgary Flames date back to 1972 when they were started as the Atlanta Flames. On the ice, the Flames were a success, reaching the playoffs in six of their eight seasons in Atlanta. Financially, however, they struggled due to poor attendance, and in 1980, they were sold and relocated to Calgary. Following the move, they maintained their on-ice success by qualifying for the postseason in their first 11 years in Calgary, which included winning the 1989 Stanley Cup as well as a trip to the 1986 Stanley Cup Final. Since winning the 1989 Stanley Cup, the team has reached one more Stanley Cup Final—in 2004, which they lost to the Tampa Bay Lightning.
