It was an outstanding night at the Scotiabank Saddledome on Saturday, and the result ended up being the right one for the home squad, a 5-3 win over the Edmonton Oilers in round two of the Battle of Alberta. Jarome Iginla scored his first of the season on the powerplay with just over 12 minutes to go in the third period, and the Flames evened their record at 2-2 on the season.

For the second time in four games to start the season, the Calgary Flames will hook up with their provincial rivals, and they do so with some added motivation. Calgary lost their season opener 4-0 in Edmonton and the Flames are also coming off a 3-0 loss to the Florida Panthers two nights ago. The Flames make some lineup changes ahead of the game, and we'll see if they make any difference.

Yech, just not a good night for the Calgary Flames on Thursday as they fell 3-0 at the hands of the Florida Panthers. It was a game that lacked excitement, entertainment, and most importantly from the Calgary perspective, it lacked compete level and enthusiasm. For the second time in three games, the Flames failed to score a goal.

As depressing as it's been seeing the constant stream of Flames players to the infirmary, the team gets some good news tonight in game three of the regular season. That comes in the form of Matt Stajan, who will in fact make his season debut for Calgary tonight against the Florida Panthers (7:30 pm, Sportsnet Flames and The Fan 960). Steve Staios also makes his season debut for the Flames.

One day after his injury status was upgraded to week-to-week, Calgary Flames forward Matt Stajan was back on the ice taking part in full practice this morning. He traded in the yellow "no contact" jersey for a regular, black practice jersey and seems to be very close to making a full return to the Flames lineup.
