Fresh off an awful three-game road-trip that makes their four consecutive wins on home ice a distant memory, the Calgary Flames are back in action Wednesday night, hosting the Detroit Red Wings (7:30 p.m., TSN. Sportsnet 960) in their own building.
The Flames (9-11-4) find themselves at the bottom the Western Conference standings, fueling speculation GM Jay Feaster could shop his stars, including captain and longtime face-of-the-franchise Jarome Iginla.
Speaking at the Saddledome for the first time since a Calgary Sun poll showed about 80% of respondents would welcome a change of scenery for the 35-year-old right-winger, Iginla stickhandled around questions about his future.
“It's always after a real tough loss, eh? Those polls. Could we do them after we dominate some games?” Iginla said with a wide smile.
