PHILADELPHIA - The devil is in the details.
In Wednesday's 8-2 loss to the Red Wings in Detroit, the Flames' failure to execute their gameplan led to the lopsided loss that kicked off their lengthy road trip.
But rather than dwelling on the negatives and letting that loss linger in their minds, the team is set on using that outing as way to get their game back in order.
"Things were going pretty well for us, we had won five of seven at home, but … we feel like we were a little loose defensively in a few of those wins at home," captain Mark Giordano acknowledged. "A game like that, we've got to tighten up. We've got to play for the 2-1, 3-2 games. That's our style. We have the guys in here to do it. Obviously we have a great team but we've got to tighten up. We can't be giving up goals and chances like we were the other night."
