Now, they are giving up 30+ shots a game routinely, and turning the puck over, and giving up TONS, and I mean TONS of odd man rushes. Sure, Turek hasn't been great, but team infront of him should be taking just as much of the blame in my opinion.

Alot of those odd man rushes came late in the game when the Flames were down, and pressing. That's gonna happen and the goalie expects those. Point is we should never have been trailing.
