It's worth noting ...

Rangers G Henrik Lundqvist was devastated by the poor showing from his teammates in Montreal Thursday night.

He was pelted by 39 shots courtesy of the Canadiens, and had some strong words after the display, saying "It was like an NHL team against ... a non-NHL team." Lundqvist was shelled for six goals by the Habs ... Both C Scott Gomez and RW Markus Naslund were on the ice for four goals against in Montreal , and Gomez shouldered a lot of the blame afterward, saying "I was horrible out there. It's my responsibility. You can't go minus-4 in a road game. I've got to set the example. The first goals were partly me being lazy and not getting back." ... The Flames gutted out a win in overtime against the Blues in St. Louis, but things get tougher the rest of the way through their four-game road trip. Tonight in New York, then back-to-back nights in Montreal and Detroit should offer huge tests. But the Flames aren't thinking too much about their opponents. "I think we like our team, so I think the plan is to play our game as effectively as we can," said LW Michael Cammalleri. "Show our opponents respect, but beat them with our game." ... Cammalleri notes one big difference between the hockey hotbeds in Calgary and New York. "People in Calgary are so polite. They're so supportive. They're so nice," he said. "In New York, it's the opposite. They'll throw a hot dog at you at the drop of a hat." ...

Flames LW Curtis Glencross' offensive tear continues. He added two more helpers against the Blues to run his numbers to three goals and a dozen points in his past 10 games. In 26 matches with the Edmonton Oilers last season, he had nine goals and 13 points. In the same number with the Flames so far, he's got five goals and 17 points and is well on his way to a career year ... LW Todd Bertuzzi's goal slump has reached 14 games, but he's still on pace for a 20-plus goal season. More troubling is his team-worst minus-11 rating.
