The Calgary Flames suffered another embarrassing loss to the Ottawa Senators on Monday, and veteran forward Milan Lucic is holding his teammates accountable despite recent speculation that head coach Geoff Ward could be on the hot seat.
"You hear a lot of outside noise talking about coaching and all this … style of play and all this bullshit," Lucic said after Monday's 5-1 loss, according to Sportsnet960's Pat Steinberg. "But that has nothing to do with the coaches. That has everything to do with the guys that are playing."
Ottawa, currently sitting last in the North Division, routed Calgary 6-1 last week as well. The Flames have only three wins in their last 10 games and tallied just one goal in each of the seven losses during that span.
