There will be 9 contest winners who will get to enjoy the Backlund Sweet Suite Experience, and meet Mikael Backlund, Flames forward #11, after the game!

Some ideas: Tell us how much or why you love the Flames, how long you have been a Flames fan, who is your favourite Flames player(s) or who you would bring with you on this experience. You could also tell us any lucky rituals you do when you watch them play, show us your Flames shirt, jersey or flag, or show us a special cheer you would use at the game. 
We want you to show your personality and be creative!
