Calgary at Edmonton "The Battle Of Alberta"

No game day thread yet and I for one am still a big fan of this team.

:
flames VS


Where - Rexall Place Edmonton Alberta
What Time - 8:00 pm MST
T.V - CBC
Radio - www.630ched.com


The Oilers will be wearing vintage uniforms once again tonight against the Flames
As per www.edmontonoilers.com

For the seventh time this season and fourth time at Rexall Place, the Edmonton Oilers meet up with provincial rivals the Calgary Flames tonight.

Edmonton has dropped each of its last three games and now sits 11 points back of the eighth and final playoff spot. However, the team they're catching will be their opponents tonight in Calgary.

"We're getting scoring chances but we just can't seem to put the puck in the net," said Oilers forward Petr Sykora of the team's recent woes.

The Oilers have been having trouble finding the net with only one goal to show for the past three games.

"It's frustrating for everybody, the situation that we're in right now," remarked head coach Craig MacTavish. "We're going to have to start with a simple formula, rely on the structure of the game and get some offence."

Calgary has been one of the more difficult teams to figure out – nearly unbeatable on home ice but can’t seem to buy a win on the road.

The Flames play 11 of its final 18 games on the road so if the Oilers can somehow close the gap between the two teams a little, they may be able to make a move up the standings against the league's worst road team.

At home, Calgary has a record of 27-6-1 but away from the Saddledome the Flames are 7-15-8. No team in the NHL has more home wins and no team in the league has fewer road wins than Calgary.

The Flames have not won on the road since defeating the Oilers 4-0 back on January 20 - a span of seven games.

Calgary exorcised one of its demons last game, winning its first shootout of the year. A late third-period goal by Robyn Regehr tied the game with Minnesota Wednesday night and Jarome Iginla's lone shootout marker was enough to power the Flames to a 2-1 win.

"It's been a while," said Iginla of his shootout goal. "I've been cold for a while but (Wednesday), for whatever reason, I was up and got fortunate. It went off the post and in. It's inches so it was a good bounce."

The Flames are in a battle with Minnesota and Vancouver for top spot in the Northwest Division. They're currently one point behind the Wild and two back of the division-leading Canucks.

ROSTER UPDATES: Edmonton — Jarret Stoll (concussion) is out. Ethan Moreau (shoulder) is out. Tom Gilbert (concussion) is doubtful. Daniel Tjarnqvist (inflamed pubic bone) is questionable. Marty Reasoner (shoulder) is questionable; Calgary – Richie Regehr (concussion) is out. Darren McCarty (sports hernia) is out.

OILERS TO WATCH: Dwayne Roloson has played in all but 16 minutes of the season series between the Flames and Oilers. In six starts, Roloson has a record of 2-4-0 along with a 2.70 GAA and .897 save percentage… Petr Sykora is Edmonton’s leading scorer this season against the Flames with four goals and six points in six games. Ales Hemsky has five assists in six games to rank second on the club in points.

FLAMES TO WATCH: Miikka Kiprusoff has been stellar against Edmonton this season. In six games, he has a 1.50 GAA and .939 save percentage to go with a 4-2-0 record… Kristian Huselius is enjoying a breakout season and is one of the most dangerous Flames when he’s on his game. He had a 15-game scoring streak earlier this season which is the longest of any player in 2006-07. With 29 goals and 62 points in 63 games, Huselius has blown away all his previous career highs… Brad Stuart has only one point in nine games since joining the Flames, an assist on Robyn Regehr’s tying goal against Minnesota Wednesday.

FAST FACTS: The Flames are 7-1-0 when Tony Amonte scores a goal, 18-4-2 when Jarome Iginla dents the twine and 12-3-1 when Dion Phaneuf scores… Edmonton trails the all-time series versus Calgary with a record of 76-80-19-1. At home, they are 46-31-10-1 against the Flames.

Lets go Oilers, lets win this, one game at a time.

Roy is doubtful because of concussion-like symptoms due to a crosscheck to face vs Owen Nolan vs the 'Yotes. An Oilers player has been injured in 5 straight games. Can this streak please stop.

Maybe this will give us a chance to feel out a few more players?

Meh... I love the Oilers... but the GM gave up, and the players have clearly given up.

I am far too competitive a person to sit and watch the team I love get worked by thier bitter rivals. I have been numb since Ryan got traded. It may sound stupid, but the feeling is similar to when the Jets left town (obviously not as strong).

I may watch the playoffs here and there, but honestly... I'd rather go outside and play shinny, or a million other things. I will be front and centre to cheer the Oilers on again next year, and will of course be really interested to see what happens in the off season.

If this isn't a handshake deal between Smyth and Lowe to come back next year I will be utterly dissapointed.

So is Reasoner out as well?

Reasoner, Tjarnqvist, Stoll, Moreau, Roy, etc.

Perhaps Schremp and Nilsson could be recalled and put together on a line for fun.

Things aren't looking up in Oil Country at the moment and I don't have high hopes for this game. I'll say 4-1 Flames but we get a goal

I think the Oilers have to go through Petersen and Winchester first.

Messier took the morning skate with the team today. Does this mean he'll be replacing Marty Reasoner?

you'll be disappointed if there isn't a handshake deal in place?

So will you be disappointed if he does come back and he still can't lead his team into the playoffs because if Smyth comes back there is no cap room for a couple of vet dmen to help grow a very young and talented back end. This team was terrible on d this year and the offence wasn't stellar wither so it sounds like a great idea to bring Smyth back to an anemic offence and not improve the defence at all. Good thing you aren't a GM>

I wouldn't actually be surprised if Edmonton beat Calgary. Edmonton didn't show up in Calgary in the New Year's 4-0 loss and they usually show up and play the Flames well. It might bode well for team confidence if they could squeak out a win. Good luck tonight guys

Cheers

GO OILERS!!!! Should be a great game, I say 4-3 Edmonton in OT, with my boy Hemmer getting the winner.

An Oiler rookie will get 3 points...I'm thinking Pouliot!

LET'S GET ER DONE!

I heard during the game on Thursday that the Oilers have used up all four (?) of their callups and can't bring anyone else up unless it's for emergency purposes.

I know - I am wishifully think a couple of Thoreson, Stortini, Petersen, Winchester etc. go down with more mysterious pubic injuries so that some talent can be recalled over plugishness.

I'm willing to go with baby steps first. Hopefully we can get a goal tonight. Probably won't be able to, with Calgary's defense, but that's all I'm hoping they can achieve. Just score. That's all.
