Flames announced today they have placed enforcer Raitis Ivanans on waivers, likely with the intent to send him down to the Abbotsford Heat.

Apparently you can play six minutes of effective hockey an win a hockey game. Okay, we'll give them a little more than that (maybe ten minutes), but Tuesday's 2-1 Calgary win over Edmonton really was the definition of finding a way to win. The Flames were almost entirely mediocre but used a solid final ten minutes to first tie and then win round one of the Battle of Alberta.

The Oilers are off to a better than expected start. The Flames have been incredibly sluggish.
Calgary has owned the BofA the last few years, but there's some question whether that will continue much longer. Can Oil can begin the turn around tonight in Calgary or will the Flames manage to prolong their dominance for just a bit longer?

The Calgary Flames play round one of the Battle of Alberta tonight, playing host to the Edmonton Oilers for the first time this season (7:30 pm, Sportsnet West and Sportsnet 960). While the Flames have struggled in getting off to a 1-3 start, the Oilers have kicked their season off with a bang, thanks in large part to their last two number one overall picks. With how things have gone lately for Calgary, a loss at home to their provincial rivals could have many inching much closer to that panic button.
