HD’s Gut Feeling
Even with 7 forwards out of the lineup the Flames are still in the thick of the playoff hunt. Tonight is the NHL debut of Flames prospect Sven Baertschi, Sven currently sits 9th in WHL scoring with 94 points in 47 games (avg 2 points a game) he will skate on the 3rd line with Nemisz and Kostopoulos. Glencross has scored a goal in each of his last five games, his next goal will match his career high of 24, which he set last season. Kiprusoff is one victory shy of his seventh consecutive 30-win season, Kipper has won four of five career meetings with the Jets/Thrashers.4-1 Flames – Iginla, Stajan & Baetschi
