HD’s Gut Feeling
Kipper will be watching tonight’s game from the pressbox, that means Irving will get the start with newly signed Taylor as backup. Keeping the puck in the Columbus end is key to getting 2 points tonight. The Blue Jackets are the 2nd most peanalized team in the league so Calgary has to stay composed and not get lured into dumb penalties and fights. Flames win 4-2 – Iginla, Cervenka, Cammalleri & Stajan
