Surprisingly, no one booed Nazem Kadri in his first Calgary appearance since turning down a summertime trade to the Flames.

The question was whether they’d boo the Flames.

They didn’t, which doesn’t mean the city isn’t full of Flames fans as frustrated as the players.

What spared the lads from significant post-game derision was a late, third-period flurry that had the Flames pressing hard for an equalizer that never came in a 3-2 loss to Colorado on Tuesday.

Flames’ Matthew Tkachuk on feeling in locker-room: ‘It’s disgusting’

  Flames’ Matthew Tkachuk on feeling in locker-room: ‘It’s disgusting’ The Calgary Flames were left searching for answers again Sunday night after dropping their fourth-straight game and being shutout for the past two matchups. The post Gurley and Brown gets Rams over Bears appeared first on latest was a 6-0 defeat against the Vegas Golden Knights to drop their record to 10-10-3 on the season.

We often can't control circumstances but we can always examine how we react and how we proceed.

The Calgary Flames will shoot for their first three-game winning streak in over a year when they visit the reeling Dallas Stars in Monday's battle at American Curtis Glencross led the offense in the most recent triumph, as he notched the second hat trick of his career to pace Calgary in Friday's 6-3 over

It masked the fact that after giving up the first goal for the 16th time in 24 outings, the Flames then saw the Avs add to the lead later in the first with Andre Burakovsky’s second perfectly placed rocket of the evening.

Midway through the second it was, gulp, 3-0.

Morale is at a playoff low in Calgary these days, but even though the hosts lost for the fifth-straight time, no one kicked garbage cans, no one read the riot act and no one pointed fingers.

Somewhat surprisingly, the approach to their latest setback in a season full of them was measured, and lined with hope.

Not what fans want to hear.

Even Matthew Tkachuk, who shared some serious frustration two nights earlier in Las Vegas, took a more muted approach to their latest loss.

“We’re not happy with the way the results are going, but this was a better effort,” said Tkachuk, whose club takes its 4-8-1 road record to St. Louis, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh and Buffalo starting Wednesday.

Flames hold players-only meeting after 6th straight loss

  Flames hold players-only meeting after 6th straight loss The Calgary Flames talked it over amongst themselves after suffering their sixth consecutive defeat in a 5-0 loss to the St. Louis Blues on Thursday night. Flames captain Mark Giordano didn't go into specifics but said the closed-door conversation was productive. "Just a lot of honesty between guys," he told reporters postgame. "We all love each other in here, but at the end of the day, sometimes you've got to be honest with the guys you'reFlames captain Mark Giordano didn't go into specifics but said the closed-door conversation was productive.

CALGARY , AB - NOVEMBER 13: Calgary Flames ' head coach Glen Gulutzan in an NHL game against the St. Louis Blues at the Scotiabank Flames fans, prior to Jan. 30, could rest easy with the lead going into the third, knowing their team were almost certainties to secure the win, evinced by

Calgary Flames Daily: Game day, trying to stay positive by Ramina Shlah. Heading into this game on a six-game losing streak, the Calgary Flames are looking for any kind of jump tonight vs. the If they can keep their momentum high for the full 60 and not get overconfident, that’s all we can ask for.

“I thought we were more engaged than other games, but it’s tough playing from behind all the time. We’ve got to change this because this is a very, very, very important road trip for us. We want to play better on the road.”

How can they possibly prevent the negativity of a furious fan base from creeping in?

“Just know we’re a good team, don’t make excuses, play for each other and believe in ourselves,” explained Tkachuk.

“It’s a tough road trip against some really tough teams, but we’re a tough team too and we have to believe that.”

Many believe that’s been part of the problem – the belief this team can get by on talent alone.

Clearly not.

Granted, the engagement issue was addressed well by the Flames on Wednesday, but meant little once the Avs had built a 3-0 cushion.

“It’s physically exhausting, it’s mentally exhausting,” said Derek Ryan of leading the league in chasing the lead.

“You’re down on the bench. Before the game, we have a lot of energy and you’re pretty vibrant. All of a sudden they score one and two goals, it’s pretty tough to still have that energy. I thought we stuck to it well, as much as we can, but we have to start scoring the first goal of the game.”

  Flames’ T.J. Brodie skates for first time since collapsing in practice The Calgary Flames say they are optimistic defenceman T.J. Brodie will return to game action soon. The post Leafs’ Tyson Barrie has new lease on life with Sheldon Keefe at the helm appeared first on“T.J. has been working out for the past several days and today skated on his own under the supervision of our medical staff,” Flames general manager Brad Treliving said in a statement. “Over this past week he has had consultations with appropriate specialists in Calgary.

Read into what you will, but Ryan’s line alongside Milan Lucic and call-up Dillon Dube was the Flames’ best of the night.

That says plenty about where the Flames are at.

The closest to boos from the thinned-out crowd was a series of “Looooch’s” aimed at one of the team’s lone bright spots in Tuesday’s defeat.

Following a near-miss in a goalmouth scrum late in the second, Lucic won a wall battle and dished it to Ryan, whose shot caromed fortuitously off a defenders’ stick and past Philippe Grubauer to end the Flames’ scoreless string of 167:44.

It was their first even-strength goal in 224:23 for a team sitting 29th in goals per game, down a full goal from last year when they sat second.

“I think the last two games we’ve managed to find some immediate chemistry between the three of us,” said Lucic, who registered six shots, but is still looking for his first goal as a Flame.

“We’ve just got to stick with it and the results will come. Especially for myself, it’s easy to get frustrated at this point. We just have to keep playing, being hard on the puck and make plays and it’s just a matter of time before they’ll go in.”

Replacing Sean Monahan on the top line with Mikael Backlund had no effect offensively, and only served to set into motion more line changes as the deficit widened.

Andrew Mangiapane, playing on a revamped line with Monahan and Elias Lindholm, got the Flames within one with four minutes left, when he corralled an Oliver Kylington point shot that hit him in the slot, backhanding it past Grubauer.

It set the stage for an intense push that ended with the Dome Groan that’s become all too familiar this year for the 10-11-3 Flames.

Johnny Gaudreau – the fans’ biggest whipping boy this season – was minus-2 with just one shot on goal.

Stockton call-up Zac Rinaldo did, in fact, inject energy with big hits in two of his first three shifts, finishing the night with four.

Alas, none of it mattered as the Flames continue losing.

Something the fanbase here is now starting to wonder if its something they need to start getting used to.
