HD’s Gut Feeling
Last meeting the Preds stole a “W” despite being outshot by the Flames 32-14. Iginla has 28 goals and 24 assists in 45 games vs Nashville, if the Flames are going to crawl their way up the standings Iggy has to lead the charge. – another 5 goal game for Calgary results in a 5-1 victory. Iginla (x2), Stempniack, Byron & Bourque.
