Battle of Alberta: Flames at Oilers [Game #79]

One team is in the drudges of the tank and the other controls their own playoff fate. Things have taken a pretty drastic turn in Alberta, and it's all pretty awesome.

Haha Oilers.

With Ryan Nugent-Hopkins out, the Flames have more than enough centres than to need Sam Bennett to deal with the Oilers. This also helps preserve one of his nine games should the Flames make the playoffs, so!

The continued scratching of Tyler Wotherspoon has gotten beyond silly and ridiculous, however. #FreeTSpoon

This is a must-win for the Flames... and one they should definitely have. Go team!
