Edmonton Oilers at Calgary Flames [Game 20]

The Calgary Flames host their rivals in the Edmonton Oilers in the battle of Alberta. The Flames have double the incentive to win this one as not only are they facing their arch-rivals, but an Oilers regulation victory would put them ahead of the Flames in the standings at the quarter way point through the season. Nobody wants to see that. The Flames could take first place by the end of the night with a victory and a regulation loss by the San Jose Sharks to the St. Louis Blues and a Vancouver Canucks loss to the Montreal Canadiens. Mike Smith let in yet another soft goal in the Flames...

Projected Lines: Calgary Flames vs Edmonton Oilers

The Flames make the right decision in net The Calgary Flames and Edmonton Oilers will be squaring off in the first Battle of Alberta of the 2018-19 season. The Flames will make a few changes to their lineup, but for the most part things will stay the same after they had a strong performance against Montreal. Dillon Dube returns to lineup after a long absence due to injury, and the Flames could use any energy he brings, as they only scored six goals in the four games he was out. Most importantly, David Rittich will be back in the starter’s net tonight, looking to build on his strong...

Flames optimistic struggling goalie Smith can reset, rebuild confidence

Undoubtedly frustrated, admittedly even a bit flabbergasted, struggling puck-stopper Mike Smith might not have realized he was staring Thursday at proof there is light at the end of the tunnel. Standing about 175 feet away, in the opposite goal-crease at the Saddledome. Standing, it seemed, on his head for the Montreal Canadiens. “I think a […]

Fan Poll Friday: How Many For Matthew Tkachuk?

Young Matthew isn’t going to make things easy for the Flames. Fan Poll Friday Matthew Tkachuk scored 2 goals Thursday night against Montreal which puts his season goal total at 9. He also has 21 points on the year. He’s now tied for the team lead in goals with Elias Lindholm and Sean Monahan and he’s the leader on the Flames in points. He’s curbed his penalty minutes and he’s become a valued member of the Flames top PP unit (3 PPG). What we are saying here is: Matthew Tkachuk’s gonna get paid....like A LOT. So the question begs, how many years? The Mark Giordano contract sets...
