No way could there be any talk of moral victories.

No chance the Calgary Flames could speak of near misses, bad breaks or a determined effort coming up shy.

Not in the manner with which they were thumped 5-2 by the Winnipeg Jets on Thursday night.

So often this season, even amidst some of the defeats during this franchise-record seven straight home-ice losses — all in regulation — they could at least hold their chins high for giving their all.

On this night, everything could be questioned, especially the defensive play that allowed the Jets to look like the Harlem Globetrotters seemingly with every tally.
