Well folks, it will be a 6 pm start tonight. It should be interesting.........
Things are a little different since the last time they met....we both have goalies who are struggling.....Flames have really developed some scoring punch, but defense is in the crapper........should be a great test for both teams.

I doubt that the Oilers will get blown out. These games are always intense. I expect the Oilers will bring everything they have got. I wouldn't be surprised to see them go into a trapping game. If it worked in the playoffs, they might hope to catch the Flames off guard to end the skid.
Whoever scores first, I think it will be a big advantage. I am looking for a defensive struggle tonight. Both teams are coming off of defensive disasters. Kipper is really pissed as well. The defenders better step up and keep Smyth out of his face.
A real good period for the Flames and they controlled the majority of the play i thought.Iginla is on fire this season.The face of the franchise no doubt about it.
Some quick notes so far. Regehr is doing an excellent job containing Hemsky. Giordano has made a few mistakes but nothing really drastic,it looks like he is been paired with Regehr.Huselius what can you say.This guy has been money lately,another great period for Huselius.
