Game 38: Flames Visit Lowly Oilers

Game 38: Flames Visit Lowly Oilers

Calgary looks for their fourth win in 10 games against the bottom dwelling Edmonton Oilers. IT’s a quick turnaround for a team that got thumped by division rivals Vancouver last night. The previous division leaders have slipped to the middle of the pack and are on pace to loose a playoff spot entirely.

likely to start in goal will be Kiprusoff who gave up four goals in the first period last night. His performance was shaky, but then again, so was everyone else. You have to believe the Flames will respond tonight after their thumping last night. But then again, yesterday’s game against the Nucks couldn’t have been any more important and that was a flop. The only good thing will be the fact the Flames are on the road for this one.

  1. Your outlook doesn’t seem very optimistic, Barry, but it is my hope that the Flames do bounce back against their Albertan counterparts – it must have been very embarassing for them to lose the way they did last night.

    Obviously, the reasoning behind their recent plays still remains unclear, but lest we forget that the entire team cannot be collaboratively ineffective…. There must be an essence to all this. Despite being professional players, they are still very human and I hope Sutter can bring them back to form.

    Good luck tonight, Flames. As usual fans wish the best for you. Go Flames Go.!!..

  2. Well, well, well, actually came out with the win tonight. Another game getting out shot, but Kipper this time held us in there. On a positive note, Calgary did control most of the 2nd and 3rd periods. Hope they can build off this win.

    1. There was more intensity last night, Flaming Moe and you are right that the Flames had good control of the puck and won the majority of the battles along with the Battle of Alberta!!
