The Oilers will be looking to complete the Battle of Alberta weekend sweep as they return home to face the Calgary Flames. Last night, the Oilers just squeaked out a win, taking down the Flames 2-1 at the Saddledome. Tonight, they’ll be in tough as Calgary is going back to their number one goaltender Jacob Markstrom.
One thing that should give Oilers fans some confidence heading into this one is the team’s history of playing very well on the second night of back-to-backs. The Oilers secured at least the split with the victory last night but there’s no doubt that grabbing another win tonight and completing the ‘eight-point swing’ would go a long way in the North Division playoff race.
I go through some potential lineup changes, talk about the starting goaltenders, and give my game day betting preview today on the podcast!
