NHL: Edmonton Oilers at Calgary Flames
The game will be Kassian’s first since his suspension on January 11th
Sergei Belski-USA TODAY Sports

The Edmonton Oilers are about to take a test.

After eleven days off, the Oilers will be hosting their provincial rivals from Calgary on Wednesday night. It’s easily one of the most anticipated games for the Oilers in over a decade. Why?

  • It’s the Battle of Albeta
  • The Oilers and Flames are currently tied at 57 points each, though the Oilers have a game in hand.
  • It’s Zack Kassian’s first game back since he picked up a two game suspension for his actions against Matthew Tkachuk on January 11th. Tensions will no doubt be high, and you’ll want to catch every second of the action.

The Oilers will no doubt rely heavily on Connor McDavid and Leon Draisaitl to help push the river. Goaltender Mike Smith has found his game over the last three weeks, and the Oilers are starting to see contributions from Josh Archibald. Will it be enough to take two points from their provincial rivals?
