The fact that the Flames take on the Oilers tonight is exciting. The fact that 33.3% of Calgary's opposition to this point have been the Oilers makes it significantly less exciting. Nonetheless, here they are...for the third time this season, the Calgary Flames take on the Chosen Ones, and for the second time at the Scotiabank Saddledome (7 pm, Sportsnet West, The FAN 960).

Three weeks in and we're already on the third Battle Of Alberta. Yeah I don't get it either.

This is Issac Newton. In addition to discovering gravity, he developed quadratic equations and famously invented the number '3.' "It was an obvious thing to do" he would later explain, "there was such a big opportunity between 2 and 4. It was only a matter of time between someone closed the gap."
Much like Newton, the Nation Network has also advanced Science by 100 years - bringing leading salary website NHLnumbers.com into the fold.

Quick update on Flamesnation COTW contest:
Hudson's has decided to get things started next month, so without gift certificates, we have nothing to give away. So, yeah...keep the comments coming of course - we just won't be awarding any of them until November.
In addition, we can only email the winner if you've signed up for an account with Flamesnation. Hard to track down anyone with just an alias. The gift certificates are only valid at locations here in town, so although we have great commenters from elsewhere, only Calgary residents (or people who visit Calgary frequently at the very least) are eligible.
Now back our regularly scheduled, uh...celebration of a winning streak.

Is there a better way to start a five game home stand than with an absolutely dominant performance over one of the NHL's elite regular season teams? That's exactly what happened Sunday night as the Flames blew away the San Jose Sharks by a 4-0 score, a game that was over after twenty minutes, and a game that gives Calgary a 5-3 record on the season.
