HD’s Gut Feeling
The Coyotes have lost 6 of their last 8 and should be tired after a game last night in Vancouver. Iggy reached 30 goals for the 11th straight season last game against Minny, look for the Captian to stay hot tonight. Glencross should be out for blood after the bad game misconduct call he received last game. Look for Scoreface to be back on the scoresheet.4-1 Flames – Iginla, Glencross, Baetschi & Sarich
