HD’s Gut Feeling
After 3 losses to end the road trip the Flames look to beat the Sharks tonight on Dome ice. Lee Stempniak is inching closer to a return, as he participated in a full practice on Sunday. The right wing, who has been sidelined since Oct. 24 with a broken foot, possibly could be in the lineup Tuesday. “I felt pretty good,” Stempniak said after practice. “I’m that much closer to playing in a game, hopefully.” Stempniak has recorded four goals and five assists in 10 games this season. – Flames will win 3-1 (Colborne Hudler & Monahan)
