The Oilers can begin digging the grave for Iginla's Flames
The Oilers are coming off of one of the biggest wins for the franchise over the last five years. Yeah, things have been that bad in Edmonton - the third game of a random year can be the biggest win in five years
I had a paragraph here, but SB Nation's editor ate it, so, onto the team reports.
Oilers Report: Ralph Krueger stirred the drink again today, inserting Darcy Hordichuk into the lineup in an effort to find more high end skill and goal-scoring prowess. How the Flames match up against the Hordichuk line will determine the outcome of this game.
Nothing else changes for the Oilers.
Flames Report: The Flames are all over the place. Packed with forwards who have been ineffective to this point, the Flames get Roman Cervenka back from injury, which pushed Sven Baertschi to the bottom line. It seems strange to say, but the Flames really miss Olli Jokinen.
Oh yeah - Cory Sarich is somehow still in the league and in the Flames starting lineup.
Expected Line Combinations
Scratches: Ben Eager, Potter, Corey, Teemu Hartikainen
