BATTLE OF ALBERTA

Edmonton had their winning streak snapped when Vancouver doubled them up 2-1 on Saturday night. They look to get that streak starting up again tonight as they’re in Calgary to take on the Flames in the next chapter of the BOA.

Let’s get to gettin’.

THREE THINGS TO LOOK FOR

  • IS THIS IT? Which one of these defencemen are getting showcased? That’s my question, because without Jones or Bouchard in this lineup, I feel like I’m taking crazy pills. An interesting pair with Ethan Bear and Kris Russell couples with William Lagesson and Adam Larsson. Tyson Barrie and Darnell Nurse are predictably paired again. What’s the end game?
  • LET’S STAY TOGETHER: Connor McDavid and Leon Draisiatl are paired up top with Kailer Yamamoto, can the line with two MVPs put up major points tonight?
  • Mike Smith is looking for his tenth win of the season. Can he continue his hot run in the crease?
