BATTLE OF ALBERTA v. 2011.6

Three in a row?  Battle of Alberta?  Playoff implications for Calgary?  I smell a date.

Give me three.

Edmonton Oilers @ Calgary Flames – Game 80

06 APR 2011 – 7:30 MST / 9:30 EST

Visit Flame For Thought on the Fansided Network

Alright, let’s shine these shoes.

  • Fresh off an exhilarating victory at home versus the Vancouver Canucks, the Oilers will try to make it three victories in a row tonight.  Calgary is fighting for their playoff lives, and will most certainly need two points from Edmonton in order to have a fighting chance.  The Oilers have been victorious but one time against Calgary this season, and really, who could forget that one?

  • If the Flames are going to use the back door into the playoffs, Jarome Iginla is one of your primary reasons they’re there.  Iginla is leading Calgary in scoring with 81 points (39G-42A) in 81 games.
  • POINTS FOR PAAJARVI:  Magnus Paajarvi had a goal last night, and tonight he’ll look to continue his good fortune against Calgary.  Paajarvi has five points (3G-2A) in four games this year against the Flames.  He could use another two or three points tonight to go with those he already has.

Hey, Coach Renney! Who’s starting tonight in net?

I’m going to go with Khabi tonight.  I’m going to make sure he gets a couple of games down the stretch here and see how that plays itself out at the end of the day.

C’mon, Coach. Say it. We all know it, just say it. (Quote taken from Oilers.NHL.com)

Can the defence hold up?  Another work of art by Ryan Jones?  Will Khabibulin stop pucks?

Enjoy the game, and GOILERS!
