Red-hot Flames visit struggling Predators

Calgary (22-11-4) at Nashville (17-17-3), 3:00 pm EST

NASHVILLE, Tennessee (Ticker) -- The Calgary Flames hope their

recent success on home ice follows them on the road.

Captain Jarome Iginla and the Flames aim for their fifth

consecutive victory Saturday afternoon, when they visit the

Nashville Predators.

Iginla collected two goals and three assists to lead Calgary to

a 6-4 triumph over the Edmonton Oilers on Wednesday in the

finale of a five-game homestand. The 31-year-old has recorded a

team-high 18 goals and 45 points this season.

Mike Cammalleri scored two goals and set up two others Wednesday

for the Flames, who have posted an 11-2-3 record over their last

16 games.

The Predators are hoping to avoid a fourth straight loss after

suffering a 2-1 setback to the Vancouver Canucks on Thursday.

Rich Peverley ended an 18-game goalless drought for Nashville,

which has lost eight of its last 11 contests. It was Peverley's

first tally since October 18.
