NHL Quarter Mark Report: Flames falling short of lofty expectations .
This was not the start The Calgary Flames envisioned. They certainly expected to be above .500, but at 12-8 there’s a feeling this team is capable of so much more. Instead of being a defensive juggernaut leaning on the strength of their vaunted blue line, the Flames now routinely find themselves in high scoring shootouts.Their last seven games have seen an average of more than nine goals scored, which pleases fans but gives coaches fits. That said, it seems to be working for a team that has won seven of its last nine.THE GOOD: Mike Smith. Make that the The Great.
