HD’s Gut Feeling
A trip to Chicago is not the remedy the Flames are looking for to break this road losing streak. With 11 stright defeats in the Windy City the Flames are poised to take another tough loss, however this usually means they win so who knows??? – I still predict a Flames win 3-1 – Iginla, Glencross & Bouwmeester
