Kipper's IR status is retroactive to Feb. 5th, so he would be eligible to comeback on Tuesday. Did see this tweet a short time ago....

It should be noted saw Miikka walking after game last night, and saw a lot of improvement in the last 36 hours...#Flames
Take it with a grain of salt, this is the observations of a writer not a doctor, but maybe a glimmer of hope that he will be back soon. The fact that the Flames made it retro is the best reason for optimism.
