HD’s Gut Feeling
Hopefully the Flames can capitalize on the fact Nashville played last night losing to the Canucks. Rinne allowed 4 goals on 12 shots before being pulled, before last night he was on fire so hopefully the Flames can keep him off his game. Glencross had a strong return from his wrist injury and looked good with Stajan and Stempniak (6 points and a +9 as a line), look for all three to continue strong tonight.
5-2 Flames – Glencross, Stajan, Hudler, Jackman & Bouwmeester
