SAY WHAT: BOUNCING BACK

A rundown of what was discussed at the team hotel in San Jose

by RYAN DITTRICK @ryandittrick / CalgaryFlames.com

 

SEAN MONAHAN ON GETTING A W:

"We've got to be better. We've got to win this one. This is the end of the trip and last night wasn't good enough. We've got to come in tonight and be ready to go."

 

MONAHAN ON EFFORT:

"We've got to put 60 minutes together. Not just 20, 30, 40 minutes. It has to be a 60-minute effort and when we do that, that gives us a great chance of winning."

'PUT A LOT OF GOOD WORK IN'

Talbot to make Flames debut as club finishes road trip in San Jose

by RYAN DITTRICK @ryandittrick / CalgaryFlames.com

SAN JOSE - 'The Dungeon,' as it was called, was actually more like a refuge.

It was home.

The foundation for it all.

Caledonia native Cam Talbot spent every off-season there in the shadow of the QEW, developing his game with longtime tutor Pat DiPronio at the Grainger Training Centre.

That is, until he opted for a different approach and spent the previous two summers - prior to signing with the Flames - at his home base in Edmonton.

"They were, statistically, my worst years," Talbot recalled earlier this month.

"So, it seemed like the right choice to go back."

TOUGH DEAL

Andersson and Gaudreau have goals, but Flames drop a 6-2 decision in Vegas

by RYAN DITTRICK @ryandittrick / CalgaryFlames.com

LAS VEGAS - This isn't the front desk of an overly garish, five-star resort.

There are no comps in this place.

It's the only jazzed-up joint around here with worse odds than a Bellagio blackjack table.

SAY WHAT: 'IT'S A HOSTILE ENVIRONMENT'

A rundown of what was discussed at the morning skate in Vegas

by RYAN DITTRICK @ryandittrick / CalgaryFlames.com

 

MICHAEL STONE ON FACING BROTHER MARK:

"I spent a little time at his house yesterday afternoon, and then went for dinner. We don't get a lot of time to do that, so it was nice that it fell on a day like that. You don't get that time - even in the summer - because we're not the same city, so we don't get a lot of time to spend together. That's what I look forward to the most. … Probably our parents, too."

 

TRAVIS HAMONIC ON PLAY OF THE D MEN:

"I thought we had a good game (in Dallas). For us to play to our strengths, as a group of defencemen, I think it helps when the forwards play the way they did. They made our job a lot easier with tons of back pressure. We try to stay up at the lines and have a good gap, and when you know when you've got the support from the forwards coming back immediately, it gives you that opportunity to A) try and stop the puck at the blueline, redline, whatever it is, and B) getting in transition and giving the puck back to our forwards. They're so skilled and we want the puck in their hands, so you have to work as a five-man unit and when that happens, we're at our best here."

BROTHERLY LOVE

Stone boys can't wait to hit the ice against each other: "We were competitive with everything growing up. I'm looking forward to it."

by RYAN DITTRICK @ryandittrick / CalgaryFlames.com

LAS VEGAS - Parents Rob and Jackie aren't tied to one team or the other.

When it comes to the wardrobe choice when their two boys, Mark and Michael Stone face off against each other, they prefer to stay neutral.

"They won't be wearing anything," Michael said with a laugh. "No affiliation."

You could say this goes back.
