GameThread - Edmonton Oilers at Calgary Flames: Lack of Deadline Day Drama

USA TODAY Sports

Nothing really happened on draft day, so beat the Flames?

Loading Scores

Game preview: Nothing has changed between these two in the last few days except Blake Comeau is gone from the top line in Calgary. Edmonton traded for a guy, but he's with his pregnant wife, so he won't play.

Team Reports

Oilers Report: Same old, same old.

Flames Report: Headed to the top 5 in the 2013 draft. Miikka Kiprusoff is still a Flame, but not in goal, so Edmonton won't get the easy win.

Expected Line Combinations

Taylor Hall - Ryan Nugent-Hopkins - Jordan Eberle
Magnus Paajarvi - Sam Gagner - Ales Hemsky
Ryan Jones - Shawn Horcoff - Nail Yakupov
Mike Brown - Ryan Smyth - Lennart Petrell

Ladislav Smid - Jeff Petry

Ryan Whitney - Corey Potter

Devan Dubnyk

Scratches: Mark Fistric, Theo Peckham, Lennart Petrell
