  • BATTLE OF ALBERTA:  Flames own the Oilers right now, and it dates back to the beginning of last season when Jordan Eberle scored ‘that’ goal.  Flames are 4-0-0 against the Oilers this year.   Oilers have two more chances (including tonight) to make it somewhat interesting.  Oilers are 4-4-2 over their last ten, Flames are 5-2-3.
  • DUBNYK AND DANIS:  Devan Dubnyk will look to rebound against his effort against the Canucks on Sunday.  Dubnyk was called on in relief of Nikolai Khabibulin against the Vancouver Canucks after Khabibulin suffered a groin injury.  Dubnyk yielded three goals on fourteen shots.  Gargle and rinse.  OKC callup Yann Danis has a shot at getting into some NHL action sometime over the next week while Khabibulin heals.  Mikka Kiprusoff is expected to get the go tonight for Calgary.
  • Olli Jokinen currently leads the Flames in scoring with 49 points (18-31-49) in 59 games.
  • NOTABLE SCRATCHES:  Both Cam Barker and Ryan Jones will miss tonight’s game as healthy scratches.  Corey Potter is back on defence, and Darcy Hordichuk will likely hurl himself into some guys in Calgary sweaters tonight for about four minutes of ice time.
