And what better team to test the Panthers during this critical juncture than the Calgary Flames? Calgary is in a far tougher spot at this point, trailing powerhouses Vancouver, Colorado, and Minnesota in its own division. But the Flames are also a much more talented team. Right wing Jarome Iginla, four years removed from the NHL scoring title, is having one of his best starts to a season yet. His resurgence would be promising indeed, if only the rest of the team werent flubbing so terribly including once-reliable net man, Miikka Kiprusoff. Can Iginla raise the Flames past the Panthers, or will Tuesdays game at the BankAtlantic Center (1 Panther Parkway, Sunrise) be punctuated by chants of, Olliiii, Olli, Olli, Olliiii?
