Predictions

Mark: Calgary Flames 3 - Edmonton Oilers 4

I HATE predicting that, but I feel like Edmonton has something to prove tonight. Also, I expect ZERO nonsense to happen in this game. There’s two huge points available tonight, but you just get that feeling the Oilers are tired of getting beat up by the Flames this season. Prove me wrong Calgary.

Flash: Calgary Flames 6 - Edmonton Oilers 3

I think all the Oilers better get off the tracks tonight.

Michael: Calgary Flames 4 - Edmonton Oilers 2

Johnny Gaudreau looked re-energized last night against the Blues and now that Buddy Robinson (good friend) is on his line, I expect another big performance. This is Edmonton’s first game since the break, so look for the Flames to try and jump on them early while they’re still working out the cobwebs.
