On the verge of being eliminated in the math from the playoff race, the Calgary Flames did not provide much motivated hockey on Wednesday night against the Winnipeg Jets. Head coach Daryl Sutter blamed his latest players shortly after beating them 4-0.
“Of their four goals, we have first aid,” Sutter said after the game, referring to the many turnovers Flames made.
“I do not know if emotion has anything to do with turnover. We pass the puck on them. Three [des joueurs qui ont commis les revirements] Defenders with less experience. I imagined how they would learn. My opinion is that there are some players who pull us back. “
“The team was not disappointed enough tonight and it reflects on their performance,” Sutter added, whose comments were reported by SportsNet.
The Jets took advantage of this duel against the Flames and ended up losing seven games. After losing their previous meeting with the Edmonton Oilers, the fires will be officially extinguished if the Montreal Canadians know another point thanks to victory or defeat after 60 minutes of control.
With their backs to the wall, and an interesting chance to bounce back from the struggling jets, the Flames frustrated.
“This is not the game we wanted,” Michael Backland agreed. We were not disappointed enough. We have five games left and we have to give as much as we can. ”
“We approached this game as a duel to win,” said Flames captain Mark Giordano. But you can not give too many quality chances and hope to win. They scored twice at 5-5, a shorthand goal and a powerplay goal. Every time this happened [donner autant de revirements], You’re not really that lucky. “
