HD’s Gut Feeling
It is a matchup of the two worst terasm in the NHL. With a regulation loss the Flames will oficially be in 30th, dark days are indeed upon us. At least it is a short season and there is a deep draft. I cannot ever pick a Flames loss, so here it is – Flames win 7-5 – Baertschi, Cervenka, Horak, Reinhart, Carson, Backlund & Hudler
