Before losing this weekend, the Calgary Flames were nearly flawless at home for much of the past two months. It's been quite the opposite away from there.
The Flames' chances of avoiding their longest road losing streak in nearly five years don't appear promising as they'll visit the San Jose Sharks on Tuesday night.
Calgary (21-20-5) had earned a point in 11 straight home games (10-0-1) before falling 4-1 to Los Angeles on Saturday in the return of former coach Darryl Sutter, the brother of current Flames coach Brent Sutter.
Michael Cammalleri, re-acquired from Montreal on Thursday, scored late in the second period during his first game back with the Flames but that goal came after the Kings had built a 3-0 lead.
"It was a tough loss. We really wanted to win that one," Cammalleri said. "I thought we came out real strong and had a good first period and then they got a couple goals there that hurt us and we couldn't make it up."
