SAY WHAT: 'PUSH EACH OTHER A BIT MORE'

The buzz around the rink following Sunday's practice

by CALGARY FLAMES STAFF @NHLFlames / CalgaryFlames.com

 

NIKITA ZADOROV ON THE TEAM'S 'FOUNDATION':

"I think we have confidence. We're in kind of a tough stretch right now, but I don't think we lost the confidence, definitely. There's lots of experience in this dressing room that have been through what we're going through in their careers. If young guys didn't, then we talk about that. I know I've been through bad stretches as well. Like, all you have to do - we've got to look back at what made us so successful at the start of the year. That's checking. We've got to check.

"Obviously, we have lots of talent on our team, but we're a check-first team. We're playing heavy and you're either checking with your sticks or being physical - doesn't matter. You've got to win some battles. This is a battle league and if you don't win battles, you're not going to get the puck. We've been chasing a lot these last (few) games and that's the biggest thing.

"Our goal is to get the puck back; keep the puck, keep the possession, and get some shots through, get the shot volume back and control the game.

"We know what we need to do and I'll bet we'll bring it next game."

'THAT'S A CHALLENGE'

Coach Sutter talks about difficulty of settling into a groove with current gaps between games

by RYAN DITTRICK @ryandittrick / CalgaryFlames.com

Every good team goes through a tough stretch. 

Right now, the Flames are living theirs. 

With four consecutive losses and eight of 10 overall dating back to Dec. 5, head coach Darryl Sutter didn't mince words following Thursday night's 4-1 home loss to Ottawa.

The "emotion" - the investment in the game - has been missing of late, he said.
