CALGARY, Alberta (Ticker) -- The Calgary Flames will try to erase the painful thoughts of an unsuccessful four-game road trip when they open a three-game homestand with the slumping Phoenix Coyotes on Tuesday.

The Flames are coming off a trek in which they went 1-2-1, absorbing three straight losses by one goal.

The latest was a 3-2 setback at Boston on Thursday. Daymond Langkow and Alex Tanguay both scored while goaltender Miikka Kiprusoff made 27 saves for Calgary, which is just 3-for-44 on the power play this season.

The Flames have not dropped four straight games since the 2002-03 campaign.

The Coyotes have been struggling of late as well. They endured their third consecutive loss, a 5-2 setback to the Edmonton Oilers on Monday. Jeremy Roenick and Mike Comrie both tallied, preventing Phoenix from being shut out for a third straight contest.

Netminder Curtis Joseph turned away 34 shots for the Coyotes, who split four meetings with the Flames during the 2005-06 season.

Calgary has come away victorious in four of the last five encounters here.
