STAYING DISCIPLINED

After a run to the box over the past few games, the Flames are focused keeping penalties to a minimum

by GEORGE JOHNSON @GJohnsonFlames / CalgaryFlames.com

VANCOUVER - Previous little good ever comes of bad behaviour.

"If you look at the last three games, honestly,'' critiqued Calgary coach Glen Gulutzan, casting an unflinching eye towards a major malady for his Flames early in this young season, "we've taken too many penalties.

"When you take 17 minors the last three games, the league doesn't let you off the hook.

"It just doesn't.

"I don't care how good your penalty kill is. Eventually they're going to break through."

Translation: Clean up your act(s).

Turning things around is.

"Any time you have an off-night as a team and as an individual,'' the Flames' combative goaltender was saying late Saturday morning, "you want to get back in there, right the ship and help be a part of that.

"You can't wait to get the bad taste out of your mouth.

"So the good thing is we get a chance to redeem ourselves right away."
