HD’s Gut Feeling
Persistace paid off last night, with 3 similar rushing the net 3rd period goals. Joey MacDonald got his first win and will probably be between the pipes tonight. Whoever is in nets will have to be sharp as Mike Smith is 5-2-1 during February. Calgary has not faired well in Phoenix lately, however they did win 4-2 last time to the desert. Iggy has 54 points in 59 games vs the Coyotes, tonight is good time for the Captain to show up. Flames win 4-2 – Iginla, Cervenka, Cammalleri & Stajan
