'IMPORTANT - IN SO MANY WAYS'

Tkachuk's impact on the ice goes far beyond just points and hits

by RYAN DITTRICK @ryandittrick / CalgaryFlames.com

By now, Matthew Tkachuk could teach a master class. 

He didn't score, log an assist or chalk up a 'touch' on the game-winning strike in Monday's victory over the Vancouver Canucks. 

But great players don't always blow the doors off. 

Not every night, anyway.

SAY WHAT: 'BUILDING IN THE RIGHT DIRECTION'

Quotes from the rink as the Flames return to practice and begin prepping for the Leafs

by RYAN DITTRICK @ryandittrick / CalgaryFlames.com

 

GEOFF WARD ON HOW HE'S APPROACHING THIS WEEK:

"We'll get some rest, obviously. That's going to be huge for us. We want to make sure we stay on our work, we stay on our compete, we stay on our execution. We'll build another day off in here, just so we get our rest because we're going to play an awful lot of hockey after this break here. ... These days are good for us with how many players we're trying to assimilate into our lineup. That allows us to reinforce a lot of things and allows us to evaluate more things, and allows our players to become more comfortable with each other. For us, it's business as usual."

SAY WHAT: 'HE'S FEELING IT'

The buzz around the rink following an impressive win over the Canucks

by RYAN DITTRICK @ryandittrick / CalgaryFlames.com

 

GEOFF WARD ON HOW THE GAME TURNED:

"I thought we were out-worked, out-skated in the first period. They were really strong and came out with a good, hard push. We knew they were going to be better than they were the other night and they were, for sure. But I give credit to our guys. They re-grouped after the intermission, found a way to tie the hockey game and then take the lead. That's a really good sign of growth for our hockey team to step up at key times like that."

SAY WHAT: 'GOING TO GET THEIR BEST'

Quotes from the Scotiabank Saddledome as the Flames get set to face the Canucks

by RYAN DITTRICK @ryandittrick / CalgaryFlames.com

 

MARK GIORDANO ON FACING CANUCKS AGAIN:

"I think it's a lot different. It feels like a playoff atmosphere, where you know after we got Game 1 there, Game 2, you know you're going to get their best. They're going to have that desperation. It's been good to go over some video clips - it's fresh and you can see some of their tendencies. But one thing we're aware of is that we have a desperate team that's going to come in and play with lots of intensity. We've got to be ready to match that."
