Changes are bound to come after being outscored 12-3 during three straight losses.

They were minor, though.

The only lineup change that didn't involve injury yesterday was a new right-winger for centre Daymond Langkow and his left-hand man, Kristian Huselius.

David Moss took Owen Nolan's former spot on the second line during drills, while Nolan joined Matthew Lombardi and Mark Smith.

"We know that the people that are scoring expect to score, and they have scored," head coach Mike Keenan said of the scoring depth that has plagued the Flames all season outside of guys like Jarome Iginla and Alex Tanguay. "We'd like that next group of players to come to a different level, a more successful level, in terms of contributing to the offensive part of the game by scoring goals. Some have done it in the past that are struggling right now, and some are learning for the first time how to score in this league."

Keenan isn't about to make drastic changes despite the lack of recent success.

"You mix and match during the games but I think we have to continue to emphasize the simple practice habits," he said. "Making sure you put the puck on net, that's the first priority. Then you start looking for more accurate shooting, harder shooting, and build it from there."
