When you spend too much time in the box, fail to convert on your own powerplay, and make shoddy mistakes in your own end...things like this are going to happen.  And that's exactly what happened on Wednesday night, as the Calgary Flames gave up four third period goals to fall 7-2 at the hands of the Vancouver Canucks.
