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.
Same lineup for EDM as Thursday with one exception: Koskinen starts (11-2-2, 2.75, .912 in last 16 games)— Tony Brar (@TonyBrarOTV) March 26, 2022

McLeod - Draisaitl - Hyman
Brassard - RNH - Puljujarvi
Foegele - Shore - Kassian
Nurse - Ceci
Keith - Bouchard
Kulak - Barrie#Oilers
THREE THINGS TO LOOK FOR
- 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.
