The Flames, meanwhile, have now fallen to 15th place in the Western Conference standings, behind both the Columbus Blue Jackets and the Edmonton Oilers. If the objective is to bottom out this season, then the events of the past three games will go a long way to meeting that goal.
“Definitely, we took a step in the wrong direction,” said Flames’ captain Jarome Iginla. “We have to go home and we have to win games, but this trip definitely put us a way’s back.”
Iginla was asked: Is there enough time to right the ship?
“Well, we’re going to keep going and keep trying, but we’ve got to get better too,” he answered. “We have to find ways to out-compete the other teams, to find ways to win. This was a close game today, the last goal into the empty net, but they found a way to win it. That’s what we haven’t been doing enough of lately.”
