HD’s Gut Feeling
Trade deadline day, does the same team take to the ice that we saw on Saturday? The Flames sit 11th in the Western Conference and will struggle to gain any ground if they can’t turn some of theese recent single-point losses into victories. The Blues have two top goalies so scoring will be difficult for both teams.

2-1 Flames – Iginla & Cammalleri
