HD’s Gut Feeling
The Battle of Alberta is for pride tonight. The Oilers have nothing to lose and the Flames can jump from 10th to 7th with a victory. Iginla has scored in six straight games and has eight goals in his last eight & Matt Stajan has three goals and three assists during a five-game point scoring streak. Bouwmeester played in his 577th consecutive game on Thursday, moving him into seventh on the all-time list. Leland Irving will be between the pipes tonight. 5-2 Flames – Iginla (X2), Glencross, Moss & Nemisz
