SAY WHAT: 'IT SUCKS, ESPECIALLY AT HOME'

What was talked about in the dressing room after last night's game

by TY PILSON @typilson / CalgaryFlames.com

Matthew Tkachuk on losing at home:

"It sucks, especially at home. Like I said earlier, we want to make this place a really tough place to play and for some reason, right now, we're just not having success. I can't put my finger on it. If I could, we would change it. But you know what, the good thing is we're in the race and we had a great road trip that kept us in it and we have to take care of business at home, we didn't tonight, but have to Monday. Have to take care of it."

Elias Lindholm on being without key injured players:

"Obviously they are two great players (defenceman Mark Giordano and Travis Hamonic), two key players for us, going to miss players like that, but overall I think the players that come in here have done a really good job and I think today it was everyone. All the details were off. We have to be better."

 

Video: "I think obviously our details are way off at home."

 

Sam Bennett on watching video after this game:

"It's not going to be fun. That wasn't a pretty performance. I think everyone knows it. It's part of it, though. So, we just gotta learn from it. We're not going to dwell on it, we're gonna move on, look at the tape and move on and just worry about Monday."

 

Video: "It's a little frustrating right now."

 

Bennett on 'Dome defeat:

"I mean, we just came off a huge road trip for our team and it's frustrating, for whatever reason, we're not getting the wins we should be at home. But we're going to figure it out, we're still fine here."

 

Interim coach Geoff Ward on giving up first goal again:

"It's a concern for sure. It's way too many times. We have to be more dialed in there. ... that's a lot of times to be giving up first-shot goals. We have to fix it, but saying that, you know the truth about competition is that it brings out the best in you or it brings out the worst in you and tonight it brought out our worst."
