If you go back to the middle of January, the Calgary Flames have been shut out four times at the Saddledome.
This team is really struggling offensively on home ice, so it's interesting to note that whatever it was that Brent Sutter said in practice on the ice on Thursday is taking hold.
The entire Sutter clan and the entire Flames organization is feeling the heat.
Sutter talked about the lack of offence, acknowledging the fact that you cannot score goals consistently in the NHL from 40 or 50 feet out. You've got to be able to have that willingness, that determination to get into the dirty areas, ten feet in front of the net, five feet in front of the net, and continue to battle.
The heat is on, and it's directly targeted at Darryl Sutter, the general manager there, based on the fact that he's fired his bullets already.
He fired Mike Keenan and his assistants at the end of last year after a disappointing conclusion in the opening round of the Stanley Cup playoffs.
Very recently, he made the big deal with the Toronto Maple Leafs for Dion Phaneuf, so now the locals are getting restless in Calgary.
If the Flames don't make the playoffs, then ultimately someone is going to have to pay the price and wide speculation, of course, is that it's falling on the general manager.
