FLAMES EXTRA - THE MOTHERLAND

Growing up in East Vancouver, mom Snežana and dad Dobrivoje (Dobro) made certain Milan Lucic understood and practiced family customs, and stayed true to his lineage

by GEORGE JOHNSON @GJohnsonFlames / CalgaryFlames.com

When Milan Lucic is on your side, off the ice or on, whether in black-and-gold, black-and-silver, orange, navy blue and white or, nowadays, red and white, Canadian flag or Serbian, he's all in.

"Oh, yeah," confesses the Flames' don't-mess-with-us winger. "I cheer - hard - for (Novak) Djokovic whenever I turn on the TV and he's on the tennis court.

"All the basketball teams, the soccer teams from back there …" he paused with a soft chuckle of support, "… I've got their backs."

And Lucic, known as someone not to be trifled with, is a handy guy to have in your corner.

CAVENDISH FARMS REPORT - 18.11.19

Heat showing resiliency and ability to bounce back after losses ... team now sets out on season-long two-week roadie ... scoring not an issue this campaign

by BRANDON WEISS @WeissBrandon1 / CalgaryFlames.com

Zac Leslie stood outside of the visitor's locker-room in San Diego, fresh off a 5-1 drubbing of the Gulls at Pechanga Arena.

It was Oct. 18, and the Heat had just responded emphatically after taking their first loss of the season three days earlier.

"Good teams aren't going to lose two games in a row," he said. "We think we're one of those good teams. At the end of the day, we don't feel we should ever lose two games in a row."

A month later, that sentiment rings just as true.

FLAMES FALL TO KNIGHTS

Talbot makes 31 saves, but for the second straight night, the Flames get shut out on the road

by RYAN DITTRICK @ryandittrick / CalgaryFlames.com

It may be the ultimate team game.

But no one deserved this more than one man: Cam Talbot.

The veteran puck-stopper has been doing plenty of that lately, but has rarely been given the kind of run support needed to harvest a winning record.

Tonight, the goal for the Flames was to re-write the script that's plagued them in their previous five trips to this barn, cash in, and give their hard-working netminder some much-needed offence to fall back on.

But it wasn't to be.

PROJECTED LINEUP - FLAMES @ GOLDEN KNIGHTS

Calgary's projected lines, pairings and starting goalie in Las Vegas

by TORIE PETERSON @ToriePeterson / CalgaryFlames.com

LAS VEGAS - The Flames will be making some lineup changes this evening when they take on the Golden Knights at 5:00 p.m. MT.

Head coach Bill Peters has confirmed Cam Talbot will get the start. The 32-year-old is coming off a strong game against the Dallas Stars on Wednesday, when he stopped 29 of the 31 shots he faced.

"I just have to go out there and makes the stops I'm supposed to make tonight," he said. "I thought I had a pretty good outing on Wednesday night so I'm just going to try to go out there and build off of that and give us a chance to win tonight."

Dillon Dube has been recalled from the Stockton Heat and is expected to play. In 13 games with the Heat, he has four goals 13 points and has put up six points in his last four games.

With no morning skate, today's projected lines are from yesterday's game in Arizona. Dube is likely going to play but it has not yet been announced who will be coming out of the lineup with his recall.

SAY WHAT - FEED OFF THE ENERGY

The Flames discuss facing off against the Golden Knights tonight

by TORIE PETERSON @ToriePeterson / CalgaryFlames.com

Milan Lucic on getting on the scoreboard first

"It's always better when you're playing with the lead and not chasing the game from behind. I think we've obviously done a good job this year, when we've been down a few goals, to get ourselves back into the game. But you don't always want to play from behind. It's not going to work for you on a night-to-night basis if you're always a down a couple of goals. I think our starts have been good but right now, it just seems like, as a collective group, we don't have that finishing touch in the scoring areas. And on another note, you can't just rely on the same guys to keep scoring goals. We need more of a collective effort, as far as that goes. It starts with me, it starts with a lot of guys that could definitely get it going in that department."

 

Lucic on playing in Vegas

"There's a lot going on here. They've even got the go-go dancers on the glass during warm-ups. I'd say it's probably the hardest building to play in now, in today's NHL, because of the fans, because of what they bring to the game, what Vegas is all about. They do a good job feeding off of their crowd. Sometimes, as a road team, you kind of have to feed off the crowd as well. You can use their energy to your advantage. Hopefully we can do that here tonight."

TOUGH SLEDDING

Flames fire 35 shots, but can't solve Kuemper in 3-0 loss to Coyotes

by RYAN DITTRICK @ryandittrick / CalgaryFlames.com

Nothin' comes easy against these guys.

In their first meeting less than two weeks ago, the Flames tackled a similar script.

Down two with less than five minutes to go, they rallied to force overtime and won the game, 4-3, thanks to Matthew Tkachuk's heroic, two-goal effort.

Down two on Saturday in the desert, a much different story.
