The Calgary Flames Having Trouble With Winning At Home

from Ryan Dixon of Sportsnet,

Remember back at the start of the season, when the Calgary Flames were a plucky team that scrapped for every puck despite being overpowered in all aspects of the game? Yeah, Flames fans probably don’t, either.

If Calgarians have a case of collective amnesia, it’s likely because they’ve been so horrified by watching their team on home ice. Everybody knew it was going to be a long year for the Flames, but Southern Alberta’s boys have now dropped seven straight at home, scoring a woeful four goals during that stretch. Even at the height of the Dead Puck Era, 0.57 goals per game won’t get you many victories. Taking it a step further, Thursday night’s 5-2 drubbing at the hands of the Winnipeg Jets means Calgary hasn’t posted a regulation win in its own barn since Dec. 4, when the stores were just starting to strike up the Christmas carols.
