In the second Firestarter podcast, brought to you by StarMetro, Torie Peterson and Ryan Dittrick chat with Martin Gelinas, who shares some great Iggy stories ahead of tomorrow's jersey retirement

by staff @NHLFlames /

The Eliminator had a front-row seat to Iginla's heroics in 2004, helping the captain lead the Flames to the Stanley Cup final. Later, Gelinas became his coach - but Iggy still called him Gelly, of course - and the two have remained close friends.

Check out some of Gelly's favourite stories about Iggy, who is town this weekend to see his No. 12 jersey hoisted to the Scotiabank Saddledome rafters prior to Saturday's game against the visiting Wild.
