Calgary's plans remained in search of answers again on Sunday night after interrupting their fourth game and dropping out of the last two games.
The most recent was a 6-0 defeat to the Golden Knights of Vegas to drop their record to 10-10-3 on the season.
The subject of the flames, Matthew Tkachuk, said after the game he felt the dressing room feeling was not good.
"It's disgusting," he told reporters. "It's bad, now it's bad. We need to change this around. "
Takachuk has said many times that during the interview, Calgary's current bid is "quite old". The Flames come from the season where they had the best record in the Western Conference in 2018-10, before being bounced back in the first round of the playoffs.
On Sunday, Takachuk said his team let goalkeeper Kam Talbot dry. Talbot gave up 31 of 37 shots in his fifth start of the season.
The 21-year-old Takachuk leads Flames with 10 goals and 10 assists through 23 games played this season. He is hoping for a home match on Tuesday night against a opponent in last round's first round, a lab in Colorado, to help the team before embarking on four journeys.
"Something has to change here. We have to go back to the old way and get rid of this little fun we have here because it's not fun, "he said.
"It's not fun to be in games and it's not fun to let your goalkeeper dry like that."
