Calgary Flames @ Edmonton Oilers
The Battle of Alberta opens up the first of three tonight as the Flames visit the Oilers! After dealing with an illness at practice earlier in the week, the Flames will yield the blue paint from usual starter Jacob Markstrom.
Per Brendan Parker of Flames TV:

Backup Dan Vladar posted a 0.92 Save Percentage in the preseason and will look to keep those numbers up in Edmonton. He went 13-6-2 with a 2.75 Goals Against Average and 0.906 Save Percentage last year.
Skater lineups won’t change from the 5-3 home opener win against the Avalanche.
