HD’s Gut Feeling
The Flames may sit in 11th but are only 3 points back of 8th. We have to take advantage of these home games to climb back into the post season dance. The revolving injury door continues with Cammalleri out tonight. Injuries are not an excuse to lose to the Habs.5-1 Flames – Iginla (X2), Glencross (X2) & Jackman
