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 season thus far.
