If that's what the boss wanted, why didn't he say something sooner?

One day after GM Jay Feaster criticized his squad for failing to capitalize on their chances, the Calgary Flames were suddenly scoring at will in Wednesday's 7-4 victory over the Dallas Stars at the Saddledome -- their highest single-game offensive output since December 2011.

"It's great that we're getting the chances -- it demonstrates the system is one that leads to chances -- but we have guys that need to start finishing," Feaster complained during Tuesday's chat with the media. "We don't take any moral victories out of anything. We have to win games."

No problem, apparently.

Prior to Wednesday's puck-drop, the announced crowd of 19,289 fans took a trip down memory lane to mark the 25th anniversary of the 1988 Winter Olympics in Calgary.

For the next 60 minutes, it often seemed like Hidy and Howdy were playing defence.
