HD’s Gut Feeling
Hopefully the Flames can capitalize on the fact Vancouver played last night to finally beat the Whale this season. Iggy is finally heating up and Tanguay is on a 4 game point scoring streak. Multiple Flame Goals will most likely be needed with Kipper still on the shelf, MacDonald needs to stand on his head tonight. McGratton returns to the Dome and will demolish someone tonight as a gift to the fans.5-3 Flames – Iginla (X2), Hudler, Cervenka & Bouwmeester
