With the multitude of injuries and such, the roster the Flames are icing tonight looks about as vulnerable as a baby gazelle at the watering hole.
The only good news is the Flames are facing one of the lesser teams in the league in the Minnesota wild. That said, even the Wild have at least two NHL quality forward units tonight, including Mikko Koivu who will likely be the best skater on the ice. There isn’t a team the Flames can take lightly at the best of times this year and in their incredibly weakened state Calgary is set up to play slump buster for the stumbling Wild.
That said, Iginla usually plays well against this club for whatever reason. Maybe he’ll score #500 tonight, which would salvage the game for most Flames fans even if they lose.
