HD’s Gut Feeling
The Sharks played the Canucks last night and while they did squander a two goal lead they won in a SO. The Flames beat the Canucks on Sunday with Taylor getting NHL win #1. A win tonight finally lifts the boys in Red over the elusive .500 mark (this is the fifth time they have had the chance). Joey MacDonald has a new mask to wear with lots of Flames and a “Mac” truck, after tonight it will have a 1-0 NHL record.   5-3 Flames – Iginla, Cammalleri, Hudler, Stajan & Wideman
