SPOILERS

  • Oilers look to throw a wrench into Calgary’s already slim playoff hopes with a win tonight at the Dome. Flames are coming off a 5-2 loss to the New York Islanders on Sunday. The Oilers are winners of three straight.
  • CONNOR COUNTDOWN: Connor McDavid has 84 points, and will look to grab a couple more in his chase for 100. He’s got 14 games to go in order to hit 100 in back-to-back seasons.
  • Matthew Tkachuk will not dress tonight due to a concussion. Edmonton is without Oscar Klefbom after he had ‘a procedure’ done on his shoulder.
  • Cam Talbot gets the green light in net for Edmonton, Mike Smith will go for Calgary.
  • No one likes Calgary. Not even Calgarians. #GOILERS
