Calgary was up 2-1 against Edmonton on Saturday but lost 3-2.

"We’re not happy. We’re an older group and we know good teams don’t do that," Toffoli said.

Calgary scored twice in a 17-second span starting at 1:34 of the third period for a 4-2 lead, but Seattle responded with power-play, short-handed and even-strength goals to pull ahead.
