HD’s Gut Feeling
Irving’s play last game vs Vancouver was better than the result on the scoreboard, look for him to continue to play strong in Kipper’s absence. The Wild’s scoring has dissappeared, they have 5 goals over thier last 4 games. Parise leads the Wild with 10 points but is ice cold with 1 point in his last 6 games. Ryan Suter is a -7 on the season, lets drop that by a couple more. Iggy has 64 points in 67 games against Minnesota, look for the Captian to hit the scoresheet tonight.4-1 Flames – Iginla, Cervenka, Giordano & Jackman
