GDB: OMG BOA

It is a great time of year to be a hockey fan. As is boxing day tradition, I am sure many of us set our cell-phones for a painfully early wake-up on boxing day to take in the most hallowed of holiday traditions, the Spengler Cup. As I am sure you all know,  Byron Ritchie helped Canada to a 5-4 win over Viktovice Steel of the Czech league which delighted the entire family I am sure.

It is important to remember that in the eye of the 'Spengler Hurricane' as it were, that is the non-stop wall-to-wall coverage of Team Canada in Davos (who will Alexandre Bolduc be playing with?! Is this Glen Metropolit's last Spengler?!) there is still NHL action to consider, and for Flames fans it doesn't get much better.

It is the 213th installment of the Battle of Alberta tonight and both teams are coming off big victories. With their respective wins in their last games, the Oilers (12-24-3) just snapped a six-game losing streak while the Flames (14-17-6) won for the first time in four games.    

THE LOCAL HEROES

Here is the exact same lineup that shocked the world by erasing a two-goal deficit and beating the Blues in a shootout. Big thanks as always to DailyFaceoff.com for the info.

  • Cammalleri - Backlund - Byron
  • Galiardi - Stajan - Stempniak
  • D. Jones - Colborne - Hudler
  • Bouma - Monahan - McGrattan
  • Giordano - Smid
  • Butler - Brodie
  • Breen - O'Brien
  • Berra

After taking a nasty knee-on-knee hit from St. Louis' David Backes, Many assumed that Matt Stajan would be missing some significant time. Those people forget that Matt Stajan is not just simply a  'player' in our little game called 'ice hockey'. Matt Stajan does not just take up a roster spot and soak up minutes. Matt Stajan is an idea, an idea that can never be defeated by knee, stick, or discouraging word. Matt Stajan makes me want to be a better man.

Because the hockey gods harvest my tears and use them as fuel for the furnace they use to toss ex-Flyer goalies into, Paul Byron might not be able to go tonight after taking a spill in practice. Byron has been playing exceptionally well of late, including a behind the back, no-look pass to Mike Cammalleri in the last game against St. Louis. It does seem as though the accident in practice wasn't too serious, leaving the ice only for precautionary reasons and will be in the lineup for tonight. 

Chris Breen draws in again tonight, so Mark Giordano should prepare to play 59 minutes.

Reto Berra is getting another crack at the Oilers after allowing a Taylor Hall goal when he was less than five seconds away from his first career shutout in his last outing against the Oil. Against St. Louis, Berra was solid, making 32 saves and winning in a shootout. The Oilers will likely try to put a lot of pucks his way tonight as they have had success from let's say interesting angles against Berra in the past:

Hopefully, Berra has a short memory because that one still stings to watch.

Sean Monahan continues to play on the fourth line while he struggles to re-adjust to game speed after the hairline fracture of his foot. You can look up his numbers over the past few games on ExtraSkater.com but I would recomend that you don't. Just know that things have not been going very well for the youngster of late. What has masked Monahan's unceremonious fall from grace has been the ascension of Backlund so it isn't all bad news down the middle for the Flames.

THAT TEAM UP NORTH

 
Here is the Oilers roster tonight thanks to Dailyfaceoff.com

  •  Hall - RNH - Perron
  • Joensuu - Gagner - Eberle 
  • Smyth - Gordon - Hemsky
  • Gadzic - Lander - Yakupov
  • Ference - J. Schultz
  • N. Schultz - Petry
  • Belov - Potter
  • Dubnyk

Both the Flames and Oilers are coming off big victories as the Oil beat the Winnipeg Jets 6-2 on Monday. A game in which Nail Yakupov finished with two points and 12 minutes in penalties. He seems to be adapting well to his new role, playing with Luke Gadzic.

The Oilers are missing Marc Arcobello to a rib injury and Philip Larsen to the flu which explains why Roman Horak was recalled yesterday. However, it does not look as though the Flames will get to show their Horak tribute video tonight as he will likely be watching from the press box. 

The Oilers start beleaguered tender Devan Dubnyk tonight whom is currently sporting a sub .900 SV% and a 3.38 GAA. Dubnyk has had a rough ride this season in Edmonton but it he is hardly the reason that the Oilers are angling for a top-five pick again. However, he has let in some groaners this season from distance, the type of which that gets the fanbase to turn on you in a hurry.

Tactics-wise, tt is the same old story with the Flames and Oilers, they are going to watch to push the pace and turn the game into a track-meet and the Flames will want to try to establish their offensive pressure below the dots. At times this season, the Oilers defense, and the defensive zone coverage from their forwards and in particular their centremen, has been frightening. The Oilers are dead-last in the NHL in goals allowed with 134 and goals allowed per game with 3.44 (though the Flames are third-last so let's not get too uppity).

SUM IT UP

This particular Battle of the QE2 doesn't have any post-season implications and it features two of the Western Conference's worst teams. But who cares? These games mean something. The last two games against the Oilers, the Flames blew leads in the third period which garnered special attention from Brian Burke during his press conference after Jay Feaster's firing.

I know that we all are realistic about the team this season and most of us have succumb to the idea that losing a lot this season is probably a good thing for the long-term health of this franchise. But you always want to beat the Oiler because, well, it just feels so damn good. So make it happen Flames.

The Puck drops tonight at 7:00 pm MT on SNET West.

@Jeff In Lethbridge

I seem to recall a few years ago when the Oilers were among the top in the league for man games lost, and a lot of those players were our top performers. At that time when we lost to the Flames and the topic of injuires to key players came up, I got lambasted for using 'injuries' as an excuse from the Flames fans....sorry, but you can't use injuries as an excuse...

Edmonton is like that brother you had that always wanted to be the best but never really succeeded. The city is a hole and has always played second fiddle to Calgary. Forget about sports (although it's always good to see the Oilers and the Esks in the basement year after year). Calgary will always be the superior city and Edmontonians will always want to be more like Calgary.

I don't really know what I'm trying to say besides hot girls don't always give the best bj;s and at the end of the day isn't it all about satisfaction? we can both agree on that........lol

Usually when I meet someone from Vancouver or Calgary and I tell them I am from Edmonton, they quickly put down E-Town and feel all special and good about themselves. I've always wondered why people from supposedly world class cities like Calgary feel the need to put down other places. Also, I've been to cities that make oil town stampede breakfast yahoo Calgary look like a provincial backwater.

Why do certain people feel superior simply because of the place they are from? I've met lots goofballs from Calgary, but wait, they must be cool, cosmopolitan and trendy, they're from Calgary FFS.

What a bunch of BS.

Let's be honest; so far the Flames have been better than the experts had predicted. This can be attributed to hard work, excellent play by Hudler and the defensive core led by Gio(who has more points than J schultz in about halfthe games, this is a dig at my Oiler friends who always tell me that Schultz is better than Gio). The Flames goaltending is coming around and they play a better team game. As for the Oilers they continue to get offense from Hall and the others but have not yet to comprehend that in the NHL play goes in both directions.( is this Halls third coach since he has been in the NHL and they have all tried to teach the same lesson)The Oilers have not lived up to preseason predictions and seem destined to continue to struggle. Based upon play prior to the Christmas break the Flames should win but maybe the jersey incident has cause some of the young Oilers to grow up.

Gio is better than every d man the oil have. It isnt close, and I would gladly Pay a high price to get him on my team.

A couple iffy calls, obviously I'm biased on the goalie interference call, but the thing I enjoyed the most was for once it seemed like the Oilers didn't squeeze a win out because of an offense outburst or goal tending performance.

They actually had a good defensive game, I have no idea when the last time they got a win by playing well in their own end!

Love that clip of Oiler Brian Trust,

Howson - nothing to add, looking very uncomfortable when Lowe begins to speak.

McTavish - Talking but saying nothing, he is answering the question like he was trained to as a hockey player. But now he is an executive LEADING THE TEAM.

Lowe - Train Wreak again.

ReBuild with all kids, Go to Seattle to Leverage the taxpayer of Edmonton, Watch Tambo draft the same type of player three times as part of a ReBuild Bring 94 back Rehire Howson after we did not win with him before Rehire his old friend McT as the GM not the AGM

Well done with the GDB, Tyler! Completely bland with nothing to incite Oilernation. I understand that you don't want to waken the sleeping bear but just as the jersey toss has stirred the Oil's competitive juices it has also fired up Oilerville. Time to put Calgary in their rightful place as Alberta's second city; Oil curb-stomps the Godless flames 5-1.

NSOGDP post game, flames mgmt. publically admit Edmonton's superiority in all facets of sports and quality of life, finally admitting that hosting the winter Olympics was their second choice that had to be settled for when the summer Commonwealth games spurned cowtown.

So, predicting a 5-2 victory is... well so Oil fan like, not knowing the stats leading up to the game and all. Enjoy the game Fedorchuk, Krupinski or whatever your names are and close your eyes when McGrattan closes Gadzic's with an overhand right.

Normally I want to bite on these kinds of comments but I find that one comment leads to another and then someone gets really upset and offended when someone goes "too far"

In the end, both cities have their good points and bad points and regarding the hockey, both teams are crap for different reasons and as much as both teams "hate" each other, I actually think that without one, the other would have a hard time surviving.

It was a weird ass game as not only Smyth was the leading scorer, Dubnyk somehow got the shutout. Berra is starting to show some form also which, despite me being an Oil fan, is nice to see as he is a very good goalie.

At least the game was relatively close so it was good enough to watch and forget about the standings for once.

Usually when I meet someone from Vancouver or Calgary and I tell them I am from Edmonton, they quickly put down E-Town and feel all special and good about themselves. I've always wondered why people from supposedly world class cities like Calgary feel the need to put down other places. Also, I've been to cities that make oil town stampede breakfast yahoo Calgary look like a provincial backwater.

Why do certain people feel superior simply because of the place they are from? I've met lots goofballs from Calgary, but wait, they must be cool, cosmopolitan and trendy, they're from Calgary FFS.

What a bunch of BS.

No one outside Alberta considers CAlgary a world class city. Its not in the same league as a Vancouver, Montreal or a Toronto.

Its not close
