🔷🔶 GAME DAY 🔶🔷 It’s here! The Battle of Alberta is back tonight as the Calgary Flames host the Oilers tonight in their first of four battles. Calgary is currently on a 2-game losing streak but have been considerably strong this season. Mike Smith has been questionable and it’s unlikely he will get the start tonight. It seems as though both teams have found more success in their respective backups as opposed to their starters. Edmonton is coming off a 3-day break following their 6-2 win over Montreal. Things could could very easily go in our favor tonight. Players to watch: Matt Tkachuk (9G 12A 21P) and Connor Mcdavid (10G 16A 26P). Tune in tonight at 8pm (MT) to enjoy the high anticipated Battle of Alberta! #letsgooilers
