As that old Bobby McFerrin song goes, “Don’t worry, be happy.” The Flames have one point in the last two games and have dropped to 9th spot in the Western Conference standings, two points behind the Dallas Stars with a game in hand. With what has transpired over the last couple of games, it is like the world has come to an end and there is no chance of turning this thing in the right direction. I have been around this team a long time, and over the last few years I have never seen a team take losses so hard and not enjoy the wins when they come. I know you are not to accept losses, but you have to understand that you are not going to win every game and the next game is always the most important. What has everyone upset is the uninspired play against the Oilers and Coyotes, but that can easily be corrected by the players putting on their work boots and bringing a blue collar approach to every game. General Manager Jay Feaster has come down on his veteran players stating they are not giving enough. I know they have not been consistent enough in their play, and challenging them may be the right thing to do,but I am not convinced. This is a funny group and I am not sure what gets them inspired, but if this team is going to make the playoffs, it will fall on the shoulders of the leadership group. For a team that is not as skilled as many in the NHL, the Flames have gone 5-1-4 over their last ten games, a record I would think any team in the league would take. Not many expected big things form the Flames at the start of the year, and with the injuries they have suffered through, I give them kudos for remaining in the hunt.
