SAY WHAT - GETTING BACK AT IT

The Flames talk about resetting ahead of tonight's game in Nashville

by TORIE PETERSON @ToriePeterson / CalgaryFlames.com

Bill Peters on reuniting Johnny Gaudreau, Sean Monahan, and Elias Lindholm

"We're going to put Janko back in and to do that, we don't have enough room for Lindy to be in the middle. That's the easiest thing to do and it's a chance for them to get back together and start being productive."

 

Peters on Gaudreau and Monahan's long-time partnership and getting them back on the same line

"I think it's like any other type of relationship, sometimes a little bit of separation goes a long way. Now they have a chance to go back and play together but they've got to dig in. If you don't dig in, it's not going to happen. If you don't dig in and work and get pucks and win battles, it's not just going to magically happen in open ice."

 

Peters on getting back to work tonight

"A good day off, energized, playing in the Western Conference, it will be a lot of fun in the building. Time to get win. Lots of time left on this trip to have a successful trip but it starts tonight."

 

Peters on the Predators

"Real good in their last game. They ended up with a shutout in that game, a lot of shot attempts, a lot of energy from their bottom six. I thought they had a real complete game, moved the puck well, good in transition - what you expect from Nashville."

 

Mark Jankowski on his return to the lineup

"I want to get in there and prove that I should be in the lineup every night and that I can help the team win. I definitely want to go out there and prove that."

 

Jankowski on getting more physicality into his game

"I want to go out there and use my body, protect pucks, hold on to them when I can, and definitely be able to throw my weight around."

 

Jankowski on the team getting back to basics tonight

"We want to keep it simple, play a good, hard, simple game tonight. No shot is a bad shot at this point."

 

David Rittich on bouncing back from Tuesday's setback

"Every loss is tough so I'm thinking of this game as an opportunity - we have to start playing the right way. We did a good job in two periods, both of the last two games, and we didn't finish it. We have to prepare for 60 minutes, not for 40, and play the right way.

"We have to be smarter than we were - penalties, turnovers, and stuff like that. If we're can figure out these things, I think we can be successful."

 

Travis Hamonic on maintaining a positive mindset

"In times where it's maybe not going the best, that's when you practice what you preach a little bit and reset. Just take it day-by-day and, quite frankly, just period-by-period. I think that we'll start seeing some results."

 

Game time is set for 6:00 p.m. MT with Sportsnet carrying the television broadcast. The Flames will play in Columbus and Washington this weekend and will return to the Scotiabank Saddledome on Nov. 5, hosting the Arizona Coyotes at 7:00 p.m. MT. Limited tickets are available HERE.
