CALGARY - It’s hard to say whether the Calgary Flames are at rock bottom.

After all, the NHL season isn’t even one-quarter in the books, so the Flames have all kinds of time to go through a slew of highs and lows.

The way things are trending right now, though, it would appear more lows than highs will be in the future.

Still, the Flames are facing a mettle test right now. They’ve lost six straight games, fallen in eight of nine clashes and managed just a paltry 2-9-1 record in the last dozen tilts.

Those results can’t be ignored. It’s been ugly for a month now, and there are no guarantees things will be better soon.

Then again, maybe a winning streak is just around the corner.

Could it happen Monday against the Winnipeg Jets?

In time, we’ll find the answer to that question and others, but here are some other burning questions heading into this week.
