HD’s Gut Feeling
The return of the Mossman may be the shot in the arm the Flames are looking for. With the reunion of the OMG line the Flames should have two legitimate scoring lines for the first time in quite a while. The Coyotes are hot, not having lost in regulation over the whole month of February. It’s time to put the Dogs down. 4-2 Flames – Iginla, Jokinen, Moss & Smith
