It Looks Like Andrew Mangiapane Is In Tonight

Mangiapane will get a chance to turn around his disappointing stints with the Flames so far this season. It looks like Andrew Mangiapane will don the Flamming C tonight as the Flames welcome the Florida Panthers to the Saddledome for their only visit of the season.
