HD’s Gut Feeling
Time to win a few on the road, the Flames are 0-6-1 onve the last 7 away games, during this they have allowed 3 or more goals in each loss. Kipper is back tonight (after the birth of his 2nd child) and expected to get the start. – Flames will win 4-1 – Iginla, Glencross, Backlund & Giordano
