The Calgary Flames just can’t seem to find a way to get the puck past Marc-Andre Fleury at T-Mobile Arena this season, losing every game there this season, while being outscored 2-4. Although it is tough to play a hot goaltender, the Flames top NHL offense, needs to be able to solve these types of problems so late in the season. The loss is now Calgary’s third in a row in regulation after winning the last seven. The Flames got off to a good start but shut down early because of a tough powerplay goal from Theodore midway through the first. The momentum was also lost after Johnny Gaudreau’s first period goal was waved off due to goalie interference. Hamonic tied the game up, but that would be it for Calgary. The main issue right now is scoring. The Flames have scored two or less goals in six of the past seven games. The Flames have a chance to redeem themselves Sunday when they take the Knights on in Calgary.
