Let's recap, shall we?
Game 1, Calgary lost on October 17th to Edmonton in a 5-2 decision.
Game 3, another Flames win by Johnny Gaudreau on home ice as the score ended up 5-2.
So the Calgary Flames are up 2 games to 1 against the BOA contender the Edmonton Oilers and they're looking for another win against their closest rival again tonight in Edmonton. If the Flames win, they'll take this years series even though they have one more BOA before the end of the season.
Pat Steinberg on twitter mentioned that Kris Russell had a maintenance day yesterday, but it seems that he will play tonight, leaving Ladislav Smid to sit on the sidelines.
Maintenance for Russell. Looks like Smid will be odd man out on the blueline for tomorrow. #Flames— Pat Steinberg (@Fan960Steinberg) January 15, 2016
As well, Derek Wills mentioned on twitter earlier that it looks like Jiri Hudler will be out of tonight's lineup.
After a maintenance day, Kris Russell is on the ice for #Flames morning skate. After leaving yesterday's practice early, Jiri Hudler is not.— Derek Wills (@Fan960Wills) January 16, 2016
