Calgary Flames VS Pittsburgh Penguins

Calgary Flames (9-11-2) at Pittsburgh Penguins (14-8-2)
The time is now! Pittsburgh is the hottest team in the NHL at the moment, and this is the perfect time to build some confidence! Flames have been getting some points lately and their play has been better, but if you want to become relevant again in the Western Conference, the time is now! You beat the Penguins (and I don`t care how), you prove to yourselves that you can turn this around.

Projected line-up (subject to change)
Tanguay Backlund Iginla
Glencross Moss Bourque
Hagman Jokinen Kostopoulos
Morrison Conroy Jackman
*Stajan could play he is a game time decision!
Regehr Bouwmeester
Giordano Babchuk
Staios/Sarich Mikkelson
Kiprusoff (S)

Apparently, let the opposition score first. As bad as that sounds, the Flames seem to wake once the opposition scores. Also Pittsburgh is an average faceoff team. If the Flames can dominate the face offs, it will take away puck possession time from the likes of Crosby and Malkin. We all know how important that is, but it`s easier said than done.
