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're closest to and that's a good thing. So I think we'll get together here again tonight (Thursday night) at the team meal and hash it out, and hopefully, we can get some real positives from hearing guys speak and go from there."

Calgary head coach Bill Peters understood why the team resorted to the private discussion.

"We're frustrated, obviously," he said postgame."You can see that. You can tell by the fact that they had a little meeting after the game that you're well aware of. So, frustration would be the right word and we've got to stay together and work our way through it and become the team that we know we're capable of becoming, but it starts with the work ethic and the attention to detail and that's (required) each and every day."

Peters gave the players credit for speaking their minds.

"That's good that they did that here tonight (Thursday night)." the bench boss said. "It's all about accountability ... and the only way we can get out of it is by holding each other accountable, working together, and finding solutions. So we've got to be solution-based and we've got to stay with it."

The Flames are 10-12-3 this season after posting the best record in the Western Conference in 2018-19.
