The next chapter in the Battle of Alberta will be written tonight. Both clubs are looking for their second win in a row; the Oilers look to inch closer to second place with a big win tonight. The Flames are looking for win number 40 on the season, they’ll pad their division lead if they can grab two points tonight. Let’s get to it.


  • Mikko Koskinen gets the start for Edmonton tonight. Koskinen will look for his 24th win of the season in this rendition of the BOA. His last start was a 5-3 loss to the Dallas Stars, he’ll look for a return to the win column tonight.
  • Kailer Yamamoto looks for his fourth straight game with a goal. Like teammate Evander Kane, Kailer Yamamoto is on a bit of streak right now. Yamamoto has goals in his last three games, he’ll look to make it four in a row with another tally tonight.
  • A win for the Oilers could put them in second place: A win for Edmonton coupled with a regulation loss for the LA Kings against Seattle will give Edmonton and LA 79 points each.

Watch those ice times on defence. I’m trying to see something.
