HD’s Gut Feeling
The Flames are in the midst of playing five road games in a six-game stretch, with the Wild loss their only home date during that span. Offense has been a problem, with the club scoring just three times in its past three games. Calgary has lost its last nine games in Chicago, the streak finally ends tonight. Flames win 4-2 – Iginla, Backlund, Horak & Bouwmeester.
