2/23/13 - Wild @ Flames 9:00 PM CST - Jinx edition

TV: CBC, FS-North, FS-Wisconsin

It's time to meet the Flames again in the Saddledome!

Wild has a horrible away-record (2-4-1) while Flames are having some serious problems at home ice (2-5-2). This might be a match where the stoppable force hits the movable object. Luckily that won't happen as Matt Cullen seems to hit his official "25 games point streak then vanish" -streak. That's a good streak in a season with only 48 games, we just have to hope it doesn't scale down with the games. Also, Backs&Kuemps multishutoutstreak.


Players to watch:

Matt Cullen - Seems to be in beast mode now, expecting 6+3 from him tonight.

Jonas Brodin - Bacon is so tasty. Swedish youngster looks like a 10 NHL season veteran every night and does so many things the right way.

Sven Baertschi - Sven was cleared from his no contact and might be playing in this game. Watch out for this Swiss youngsters speed and nose for the net.

Jarome Iginla - All time scoring leader vs. Wild. Says it all doesn't it.


Possible starting lineup for the Wild:

Parise - Koivu - Heatley
Zucker - Cullen - Setoguchi
Bouchard - Brodziak - Coyle
Rupp - Granlund - Mitchell

Suter - Brodin
Gilbert - Stoner
Spurgeon - Prosser/Falk (Falk was out with flu)



Possible starting lineup for the Flames:

Cammaleri - Tanguay - Iginla
Glencross - Stajan - Stempniak
Cervenka - Horak - Hudler
Jackman - Comeau? - Aliu?
Baertschi (cleared for contact)

JBo - Giordano
Brodie - Wideman
Butler - Sarich
(wheres Anton !?!?!)


Wild is 4-1-1 in last 6 and in Top-8 in the west.
