GDB: OMG BOA

It is a great time of year to be a hockey fan. As is boxing day tradition, I am sure many of us set our cell-phones for a painfully early wake-up on boxing day to take in the most hallowed of holiday traditions, the Spengler Cup. As I am sure you all know,  Byron Ritchie helped Canada to a 5-4 win over Viktovice Steel of the Czech league which delighted the entire family I am sure.

It is important to remember that in the eye of the 'Spengler Hurricane' as it were, that is the non-stop wall-to-wall coverage of Team Canada in Davos (who will Alexandre Bolduc be playing with?! Is this Glen Metropolit's last Spengler?!) there is still NHL action to consider, and for Flames fans it doesn't get much better.

It is the 213th installment of the Battle of Alberta tonight and both teams are coming off big victories. With their respective wins in their last games, the Oilers (12-24-3) just snapped a six-game losing streak while the Flames (14-17-6) won for the first time in four games.    

THE LOCAL HEROES

Here is the exact same lineup that shocked the world by erasing a two-goal deficit and beating the Blues in a shootout. Big thanks as always to DailyFaceoff.com for the info.

  • Cammalleri - Backlund - Byron
  • Galiardi - Stajan - Stempniak
  • D. Jones - Colborne - Hudler
  • Bouma - Monahan - McGrattan
  • Giordano - Smid
  • Butler - Brodie
  • Breen - O'Brien
  • Berra

After taking a nasty knee-on-knee hit from St. Louis' David Backes, Many assumed that Matt Stajan would be missing some significant time. Those people forget that Matt Stajan is not just simply a  'player' in our little game called 'ice hockey'. Matt Stajan does not just take up a roster spot and soak up minutes. Matt Stajan is an idea, an idea that can never be defeated by knee, stick, or discouraging word. Matt Stajan makes me want to be a better man.

Because the hockey gods harvest my tears and use them as fuel for the furnace they use to toss ex-Flyer goalies into, Paul Byron might not be able to go tonight after taking a spill in practice. Byron has been playing exceptionally well of late, including a behind the back, no-look pass to Mike Cammalleri in the last game against St. Louis. It does seem as though the accident in practice wasn't too serious, leaving the ice only for precautionary reasons and will be in the lineup for tonight. 

Chris Breen draws in again tonight, so Mark Giordano should prepare to play 59 minutes.

Reto Berra is getting another crack at the Oilers after allowing a Taylor Hall goal when he was less than five seconds away from his first career shutout in his last outing against the Oil. Against St. Louis, Berra was solid, making 32 saves and winning in a shootout. The Oilers will likely try to put a lot of pucks his way tonight as they have had success from let's say interesting angles against Berra in the past:

Hopefully, Berra has a short memory because that one still stings to watch.

Sean Monahan continues to play on the fourth line while he struggles to re-adjust to game speed after the hairline fracture of his foot. You can look up his numbers over the past few games on ExtraSkater.com but I would recomend that you don't. Just know that things have not been going very well for the youngster of late. What has masked Monahan's unceremonious fall from grace has been the ascension of Backlund so it isn't all bad news down the middle for the Flames.

THAT TEAM UP NORTH

 
Here is the Oilers roster tonight thanks to Dailyfaceoff.com

  •  Hall - RNH - Perron
  • Joensuu - Gagner - Eberle 
  • Smyth - Gordon - Hemsky
  • Gadzic - Lander - Yakupov
  • Ference - J. Schultz
  • N. Schultz - Petry
  • Belov - Potter
  • Dubnyk

Both the Flames and Oilers are coming off big victories as the Oil beat the Winnipeg Jets 6-2 on Monday. A game in which Nail Yakupov finished with two points and 12 minutes in penalties. He seems to be adapting well to his new role, playing with Luke Gadzic.

The Oilers are missing Marc Arcobello to a rib injury and Philip Larsen to the flu which explains why Roman Horak was recalled yesterday. However, it does not look as though the Flames will get to show their Horak tribute video tonight as he will likely be watching from the press box. 

The Oilers start beleaguered tender Devan Dubnyk tonight whom is currently sporting a sub .900 SV% and a 3.38 GAA. Dubnyk has had a rough ride this season in Edmonton but it he is hardly the reason that the Oilers are angling for a top-five pick again. However, he has let in some groaners this season from distance, the type of which that gets the fanbase to turn on you in a hurry.

Tactics-wise, tt is the same old story with the Flames and Oilers, they are going to watch to push the pace and turn the game into a track-meet and the Flames will want to try to establish their offensive pressure below the dots. At times this season, the Oilers defense, and the defensive zone coverage from their forwards and in particular their centremen, has been frightening. The Oilers are dead-last in the NHL in goals allowed with 134 and goals allowed per game with 3.44 (though the Flames are third-last so let's not get too uppity).

SUM IT UP

This particular Battle of the QE2 doesn't have any post-season implications and it features two of the Western Conference's worst teams. But who cares? These games mean something. The last two games against the Oilers, the Flames blew leads in the third period which garnered special attention from Brian Burke during his press conference after Jay Feaster's firing.

I know that we all are realistic about the team this season and most of us have succumb to the idea that losing a lot this season is probably a good thing for the long-term health of this franchise. But you always want to beat the Oiler because, well, it just feels so damn good. So make it happen Flames.

The Puck drops tonight at 7:00 pm MT on SNET West.

How is it that fans aren't also outraged at the brutal interview Mac T had Monday with Stauffer? What a clown. It's obvious after that interview the problem is all with management and their denial. And wtf was that about " most nights we present a highly entertaining product"? What a joke these clowns are. If by " most nights" he means the 13 pathetic wins they posted against mostly Eastern teams or out of playoffs teams, then we are in for a world of hurt and playoffs won't be coming until these idiots are out of office.

As for tonight, it will be back to normal again. 4-2 Flames but somehow we will be right " on track" and not to worry, we need to suffer pain a lot before we become a" chumpion ".

The oil should be embarrased that the Flames were even in this game with four major players injured and a few others playing injured, not to mention the good goal called back and the 'icing' wrong call at the end... how sad.

The icing call isn't a factor. The Oiler defence had complete control of the dump in. I guess that isn't a guarantee of getting it out the zone with those clowns. Who cares how, we needed that win.

So how does the icing make a lock of difference? The puck was on an Oiler stick with room to skate another 20 feet with a clear shot at the goal with no chance of icing due to the penalty and 12 seconds left. The game was over on that desperate dump-in. Also goaltender interference is pretty simple. Example A was displayed by Coburn tonight and called appropriately. I guess justice from how the last game went where the losing team was clearly the better one. On a side note, Giordano is extremely good. What a stud Dman! Congrats Flames fans, you apparently have a bonafide 1A Dman to build around.

I kid you not when I say this is the most exciting Battle of Alberta I've seen in years.

Can the Oilers with their mighty three first-overalls and all the talent that a decade of sucking has earned them catch up to and pass the Flames who just started their rebuild?

Their only hope is tonight.

God have mercy on Craig MacTavish, Kevin Lowe, and the other idiots in charge of this team.

Goals to the flames are like water to a man lost in the desert. The type of game this is is exactly what the flames wanted, but that bogus call on the first goal has them behind 1-0.

I don't understand why Edmontonians are so patient with their team. The Flames are an awful team with limited talent, numerous injuries and sub par goaltending, and yet, they are ahead of the Oilers in the standings and the Oiler faithful seem to think battling Buffalo for last place is acceptable. We heard last year that "this is our year" and this year "this is really our year. We will make the playoffs." But the reality is the OIlers are further from the playoffs than the Flames. And Oiler fans, that should be frightening.

Changing the subject, have any of you read this from the Beacher Report today on Jan Hejda?

“There was a time when Colorado Avalanche defenseman Jan Hejda contemplated quitting on the National Hockey League.

“That’s according to a story in The Denver Post, which chronicled Hejda’s struggles in the Edmonton Oilers system during the 2006-07 season, when he first broke into the league. His time with the Oilers also included a stop in Hamilton in the American Hockey League.

“Not the greatest situation for a then 27-year-old with a young family in a new country.

‘It was tough. I was a 27-year-old guy who’d already won a world championship with the Czech, but they were treating me like I was 19 and just a rookie,’ Hejda told The Denver Post. ‘I’m doing bag skates in Hamilton, missing my family. I wanted to go home.’

“After his troubles in the Oilers’ organization, Hejda has moved on to find success in the NHL, with the Columbus Blue Jackets and now with the Avalanche. He also played for the Czech Republic in the 2010 Vancouver Olympics.

“In his third full season with the Avalanche, and at the age of 35, he’s averaging just over 22 minutes of ice time a game, which is second on the team behind his partner on the blue line Erik Johnson.”

With this kind of reputation, it's not difficult to understand why the Oilers have great difficulty in developing players or attracting UFA.

I must be missing something. The Oilers have a bad reputation due to sending a poor player to the AHL to work on his game?? Just because he accomplished something with the Czech team didn't make him an automatic NHLer. Maybe it's that exact move that motivated Hejda to play better to stay in the NHL? Horrible example to use as a shot at the Oilers.

If anything the Oilers should be knocked for not acquiring enough veteran depth to allow players to develop in the minors.

The Oiler's can't attract UFA's because they suck and they aren't located in a tropical climate. Something that, if all progresses as the majority of the "experts" predict, the Flames will struggle with for a lot longer from now on.

Also, whatever happened to the mighty Roman Cervenka? How come he didn't return for another season in cowtown?

The sportsnet opinions on the reason why the Flames are better than expected are so bad. Hard work and crediting Bob Hartley. So lazy. Just looking for a narrative that fit their preconceived notions on the team instead of looking at results.

No mention of the players that are over performing in Hudler, Giordano and Russell.

Also fails to mention that the goal-tending, while better than last year is still bad and the bottom of the roster is what is really holding the team back this year. The team isn't great at the top but better than expect really good in the middle part of the roster and then bad bottom 2 lines and bottom pairing d-men. You would never learn that by listening to sportsnet.
