The Oilers kick off a two-game set against the Calgary Flames tonight in the fifth Battle of Alberta of the season. The Oilers have won the last three meetings between these two teams but with six more head-to-head matchups this season, they’ll need to continue to beat up on their provincial rivals if they want to hold onto a playoff spot. These games are going to be huge and winning games in regulation will go a long way in the playoff race.
The Flames will have their new Head Coach Daryll Sutter behind the bench tonight. It’ll be just his third game behind the bench since being re-hired by the Flames. The team has won both of the first two games and only allowed two goals against. Look for them to play a hard, defensive game tonight as they look to stop McDavid and Draisaitl.
