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."
