This NHL franchise also became the first hockey team in Calgary to compete for the Stanley Cup since the 1923-24 Calgary Tigers team. All the hard-work and persistence of the Flames paid off when they won their only Stanley Cup championship to date in the 1988-1989 NHL season. Aside from their lone Stanley Cup crown, the Calgary Flames have also won two Presidents' Trophies and five division championship crowns.
