LIVE BLOG: Flames vs Oilers

Hockey Night in Canada is here on worldhockeyreport.com.

Both the Calgary Flames and Edmonton Oilers are playing .500 hockey in their past 10 games, who will break the streak tonight at the Saddledome?

Koskinen (Fin) vs Rittich (Cze) between the pipes….. both only have one loss each so far this season.

The last time Dillon Dube played the Oilers.

Weird anthem to start things off…. not mad though.

Bennett blows up Nurse. Draisaitl sorta slew foots Tkachuk, Love it!

Gaudreau turns it over, Chiasson pots one short-handed.

1-0 Oil

Flames powerplay tonight -1/1

Bennett dummies Nurse to start the game then scraps with the 6’4″ 220 d man. Mediocre tilt.

Could have been worse I guess.

Stupid Spin-O-rama by Gaudreau.

Rittich with a solid save, needs to steal the show tonight for Calgary to win.

Please be a bench brawl. Please be a bench brawl. Please be a bench brawl. Please be a bench brawl. Please be a bench brawl. Please be a bench brawl. Please be a bench brawl. Please be a bench brawl. Please be a bench brawl. Please be a bench brawl. Please be a bench brawl. Please be a bench brawl. Please be a bench brawl. Please be a bench brawl.

Easily the most entertaining start to a hockey game this season. #BattleOfAlberta

Flames PP tonight: -1/2

This live blog is brought to you by NeuEnergy, try it for yourself here!

Koskinen barely tested this period. Not enough pucks on net for the Flames.

No call on this?? Yikes….

27-year-old Kassian jumps Tkachuk. Not a fan of one man fights, especially when you’re jumping a 20-year-old. If that’s Prout jumping McDavid Oiler fans would flood the province with tears.

Ya, so the Flames peeper isn’t great. Only goal with the man advantage ended up in their net.

End of period 1:

Edmonton 1

Calgary 0

I LOVED THAT PERIOD!

Start of the second period, Flames on the PP, just try not to get scored on Rittich.

That is like 3000 breakaway saves for Rittich. My goodness.

Why would you give those two a 2 on 1….. Also a McDavid one timer from that close could be the most dangerous play in hockey, clearly should be taking the pass there as a D man.

2-0 Oilers

I LOVE BIG HITS

Flames PP -1/4 with only two shots with the man advantage. Pathetic is the nicest thing you can say about their powerplay.

Powerplay ice time halfway through:

Calgary 7:42, 0 goals

Edmonton 0:01, 1 goal

Half of the Flames shots are coming from less than 10 feet away from the corner. Useless waste of energy plays.

**Sigh** another Calgary powerplay.

Flames PP tonight – 0/5 (with one goal?…)

SpoCompton’s finest (former KIJHL Brave) Derek Ryan with the PP goal on a greasy backhand.

Oilers 2 – Flames 1

Ryan started his pro career in Hungary. That is not a joke.

Elias Lindholm has to bury that shorty.

After 40 minutes:

Oilers 2

Flames 1

Flames will come back. No doubt.

So who was questioning Monahan’s compete level, motivation and engagement????

Flames 2 – Oilers 2

What a save by Koskinen. I’ll say it since I know Edmonton fans won’t appreciate it and are still complaining about Tkachuk.

Another great save by the Fin.

And the Flames win by a million.

Rebounds, rebounds and more rebounds. Lindholm makes it 3-2 Flames.

If there is a two-goal lead late in this game we may see a line brawl….. Only one could hope, right?

This Calgary team may as well not show up in the first two periods. They are pressing the pace, electric, buzzing and suffocating in the third period.

With how much the Flames are controlling this period, the Oilers may not touch the puck for the rest of the season.

The intensity of this game is exactly what the NHL has been missing. If you’re a fan and complaining either way you’re a loser.

Here comes the rough stuff….

Flames win 4-2.

Rittich>Koskinen in the battle of the “backups”.
