HD’s Gut Feeling
It is the beginning of a new era! It is the Flames first game without Iggy on the roster since 1996. The Flames future direction is uncertian but tonight is step 1. On the plus side the Flames match-up against a Columbis team that is 0-2-1 on it’s current road trip and lost last night in Edmonton.4-1 Flames – Cervenka, Backlund & Giordano
