HD’s Gut Feeling
Butler joins the ranks of the Flames Hospital Gang, however 2 key players in Glencross and Smith may be back on Thursday (game-time decisions). Derek Smith appears likely to replace Butler in the lineup. Smith and Scoreface practiced with the team on Wednesday. A loss to Edmonton always stings but Tuesday counldn’t have happened at a worse time. Add to that loss the OT loss a week ago to these Coyotes and look for an angry Flames team to come out strong tonight.

3-1 Flames – Iginla, Cammalleri & Bouwmeester
