While they failed to follow that mantra during a three-game losing streak in late November, the Flames have gone 4-1-1 in the six games since. "It shows that were playing more consistently," said forward Brendan Morrison, who had two goals and two assists to lead Calgary to a 7-6 win at home over the slumping Carolina Hurricanes on Tuesday. "Were playing better hockey overall. Were finding ways to get points and we have to continue to do so." With their recent streak, the Flames have pulled to within four points of the eighth-place Los Angeles Kings in the Western Conference. Theyll continue their three-game homestand on Thursday with a game against the Colorado Avalanche followed by a Saturday-night affair against the Edmonton Oilers, two teams just ahead of them in the standings. "This is a prime opportunity for us to gain some ground on these guys," said Morrison, who returned to Calgarys lineup after being a healthy scratch for five games. "We cant ask for anything more. Weve got two games here at home. Weve got divisional opponents. As they say, youve got to make hay when the sun shines and its time for that now." Although he wasnt pleased that the Flames surrendered a pair of late goals to the Hurricanes on Tuesday, Calgary coach Brent Sutter was nonetheless happy his team hung on for the win. "The ending isnt the way youd like to finish a game obviously, but there was a lot of good things ... a lot of positives," Sutter said. "If thats a lot tighter of a hockey game, you dont get away with that. I dont want any bad habits creeping in. When you have leads, youve just got to really nail it and finish it off the right way." The Flames have played nine games in the past 16 days, six of them on the road, so Sutter was pleased to have the chance to run an intense practice on Wednesday at the Scotiabank Saddledome. "We wanted to have a good practice day today," said Sutter. "We havent really had an opportunity to practice too much with the way our schedule has been. Its good to go through a few things and just really get a little more awareness in some areas that we need to get better at.&qquot; Forward Olli Jokinen, who had a goal and two assist in the win over the Hurricanes, admitted that Sutter voiced his displeasure with the way the on-ice session started. "We had a pretty sloppy start for our practice," Jokinen said. "Our coach told us that every time you come here, youve got to be prepared to get better and do things right and not get any bad habits." Although Calgary has won eight games in a row against the Avalanche, including all three times theyve played Colorado this season, Jokinen warned that the Flames cant take any team lightly. "Weve got to get back to doing things right and understand how important every shift that you get out there is," he said. "Its a crucial time. If you take one shift off, it could cost youre team two points." Defenceman Derek Smith agreed with Jokinens assessment. "Weve got to stick to our game plan and play a simple game and get pucks deep and not turn pucks over," Smith said. "Its definitely something we didnt do late in the game (against Carolina) and it almost cost us. We just have to keep playing with structure and emotion and think the game well. When we play a full 60 minutes, we can play with anybody. When we dont, its going to be tough for us." While the Flames have bought into the "every game matters" motto, forward Alex Tanguay said the players have to stay even keel through a long season. "Its like a marathon," Tanguay said. "You cant let the highs get too high over a win and you cant let the lows over a loss get to where you dwell on them and then you lose another few. We certainly know that weve got to play better in order to find success more consistently and thats what were going to try to do." In his time with the Flames, Sutter has always taken a game-by-game approach and hell continue to do so in an effort to get his team back into a playoff spot. "Every game does matter to us," Sutter said. "(Thursday) night is the biggest game to date, but not to the point where its life or death. Its to go play well and lets do it the right way and lets give ourselves a chance to succeed. When that games over, well start getting ready for the next one." cheap jerseys cheap nfl jerseys ' ' '
