SAY WHAT: 'WE NEED TO BE BETTER IN EVERY AREA'

What the Flames were saying at their morning media availability

by TY PILSON @typilson / CalgaryFlames.com

 

BILL PETERS ON LOSS TO KINGS

"Our guys are a very intelligent group. They didn't work hard enough and they weren't disciplined enough."

 

PETERS ON SPECIAL TEAMS

"You know what, our whole game - whether our powerplay, our penalty kill, five-on-five - it has inconsistencies in it. There were some big moments in the game last night, we were on the powerplay early, that could have made a difference in the game. Then when you look at we gave up a short-handed goal and a powerplay goal. That's tough to overcome, so we need to be better in every area."

 

PETERS ON FACING DUCKS

"You know what, they're tight defensively. Both goaltenders are both sporting a 941 save percentage. That speaks to team defence, but a lot of speed in their lineup and they're playing the right way. They're checking hard."

 

Video: "We need to be better in every area."

 

SEAN MONAHAN ON SPEEDY ANAHEIM CLUB

"I think their team changed a lot from last year. I think they're quicker, obviously, they got some new guys in their roster and obviously they are hungry coming of a season like last year. Like I said, this is a big one for us tonight and we have to be ready from the start."

 

Video: "We got embarrassed there, it wasn't a good game."

 

MILAN LUCIC ON WHAT AILS TEAM

"I think our second period. I don't think our second period was great against Detroit on Thursday and again last night. You take away that second period and it's a 1-1 game so, we gotta find a way to play a complete game for a full 60 minutes. We're only 1-4 here on the road so we have a chance to go home 1-1 on a tough weekend trip here. Like I said, just play a complete 60-minute game."

 

LUCIC ON SUB-PAR ROAD RECORD

"Maybe we just need to stick to simplifying the game. I feel like at times when we get behind, like we have been when we're on the road, we try to make long plays and homerun plays instead of playing together as a five-man unit. That's when we tend to get ourselves in trouble."

 

Video: "It's a lot of games, excited to get to this mark."

 

LUCIC ON PLAYING GAME 900 TONIGHT

"It's a lot of games, you know, excited to get the mark. As long as it's been it's felt like it's gone by real fast. A lot of good things have happened, some bad things … I like the way, personally, my game is going, so try to do what I can to make these next 100 my best hundred games before I get to 1,000."
