The Calgary Flames’ slide continued on Friday night. They were scored on in the first period and chased the rest of the way. They lost 3-2 to the Winnipeg Jets to extend their current skid to four games – and five of their last six games.
Here are some selected quotes from the post-game media addresses.

Milan Lucic

Lucic was a factor in the third period for the Flames, both good and bad. He had a goal, but he also had two penalties that sapped momentum and led to Winnipeg’s eventual game-winner. He broke down the third period.
Got ourselves back in it. It’s not like I’m trying to hit anyone from behind. I’m not a huge fan of the roughing call, especially when Pionk engages me and gives me a cross-check first. But it ends up being costly. We got got one six-on-five, weren’t able to get the other one. Lose another one goal game. It sucks because, you know, running out of time, running out of games. Gotta start getting in the win column if we’re going to have any type of chance.

Darryl Sutter

Sutter was asked about the disappointment of losing another close game. He pointed to the team’s start putting them behind the eight-ball.
It doesn’t matter. We had some real dopey players in the first period. So, it cost us the hockey game… The start of some of our players. As I said, we had some dopey players who didn’t wake up until we were down a goal which is unfortunate.
