HD’s Gut Feeling
Both teams have started on the wrong foot. Hopefully the Flames are the team to turn that around tonight. Glencross and Stempniak are playing well with 3 points each. Time for the others to showup against the Vancouver Netminding Circus.  Kipper steadies in himself in the Flames crease. Flames win 5-2 – Iginla, Stajan, Giordano, Tanguay & Butler
