Flames, Oilers meet again in Battle of Alberta

Whenever the Edmonton Oilers and Calgary Flames meet in the Battle of Alberta, the games always feature plenty of on-ice fireworks. And with both teams playing well in recent weeks, that intensity should be magnified.

Looking to avenge a loss in the first matchup this season, the Oilers go for their fifth straight home win over the Western Conference-leading Flames on Sunday night.

The provincial rivals met on Nov. 17 in Calgary where Elias Lindholm scored twice in the third period to lift the Flames to a 4-2 win. The teams combined for 56 penalty minutes with Edmonton accounting for 41 of them. Rugged Oilers forward Zack Kassian drew a rare triple minor for roughing and the first of two misconducts in the final minute of the first period.
