QUOTABLES - FLAMES @ DUCKS

A rundown on what was discussed during this morning's media availability

by TORIE PETERSON @ToriePeterson / CalgaryFlames.com

On the Flames' losing skid at the Honda Center:

"To me, that doesn't bother me. I think it's because I haven't been here long enough where it's a real issue for me. What I do know is our focus, and in that locker room, isn't really on that streak. You've got guys who weren't a part of it, guys who have won in the building. We're really focused on trying to get our game back. We recognize the importance of playing well in a potential match-up building but the streak isn't on the forefront of anyone's mind." - Glen Gulutzan

"That's the last thing on our mind - the history thing. Obviously, when it's over and you get the win, you can think about that but you can't really focus on that aspect of the game. You've got to go in with the right mindset like you always do, to play well as a team and play our game regardless of where we are or what the circumstances are. You just want to play well as a team and play the right way." - Chad Johnson

On the Flames' game against the Ducks on Sunday:

"We got heavily outchanced. I said this before - I give our guys a lot of credit. We hummed at a high level for a long period of time and I thought that game was one game where we did kind of take a breath after clinching. We have to get right back in the saddle today as far as not losing that edge going into the playoffs." - Gulutzan

"It's an important game for us. We want a little bit of a bounce back from last game. We know it wasn't our best. We've got a chance to redeem ourselves and try to get a big win on the road." - Johnny Gaudreau

Gaudreau on possibly playing Anaheim in the playoffs:

"We've been kind of circling this game, thinking we might be playing these guys in the playoffs. It'd be nice to get a win here and get ready for playoffs because they're a potential match-up and you've got to win games on the road in playoffs. Hopefully we can do that tonight."

Nick Ritchie on the Ducks winning streak over the Flames in Anaheim:

"Most people know about the streak we've had against them here. It's no secret now. It's not something we're necessarily worried about in the game. We're just looking to play our game … it's a big game for us, it's a big game for them. Both playoff teams and we could end up meeting in the playoffs at some point. It's a big game on that front and for us to get ready for the playoffs."

Ritchie on the Flames-Ducks match-up on Sunday:

"That was a good game up there in Calgary. It was the second of a back-to-back for us. We played a good game … we battled back and that's not easy to do on the road sometimes. It was a big confidence boost for us, coming home and seeing these guys again."
