Heading into Saturday’s meeting with the Los Angeles Kings, the Calgary Flames were focused on the same thing they’ve really dialed in on for the past few weeks: themselves. Rather than worry too much about their opposition, interim coach Geoff Ward is trying to get his crew to take care of their own business, play with structure, and stick with the program.
On Saturday night, it was mission accomplished.
“I just liked, first of all, our composure,” said Ward. “We got down 2-0, there was no panic. The guys just kept going to work. They kept talking to each other on the bench, it was real upbeat.
