PRE-GAME RANT

Happy new year, everyone! Battle of Alberta time again. Sounds like the fucking Winter Classic is going to cut into this game. If I understood Elliotte Friedman right, if the Winter Classic is all sorts of awesome, they’ll continue to show that and cut into the Oilers game.

Shawn Belle should play tonight, as he was called up yesterday. Best guess, I think he’ll play with his AHL partner, Jeff Petry. This will leave the other pairings intact.

The Flames currently lead the series with one regulation win, one shootout win, and one loss. I am thinking that the Oilers, as battered as they are, are going to give this one their all. Will it be enough? The Flames are on a 3-game winning streak right now.

I’ll go with the brain/heart prediction on this one. Brain says 5-2 Flames. Heart says 4-2 Oilers.

FAIRLY-EDUCATED-GUESS LINES

GDT – Edmonton 3, Calgary 4 (SO) – Oct. 8, 2009 – Game 3

They got lucky last time

2009/10 Battle of Alberta 2.0 tonight. Let’s hope that Khabibulin is in better game shape tonight. The Flames got the best of us last game (4-3 Flames).. perhaps the best of Khabibulin, if you want to think of it that way. But I liked seeing our team come out flying early on. It was one they could have won.

I predict a high scoring game again. I’m going with 5-4 Oilers, just because I’m a homer. This one makes it to the shootout, this time. Fire out your predictions in the comments section..

Not much out there in the way of information about the game yet (i.e. lines), but here are the projected rosters for now. Moreau skated in yesterday’s practice, but not sure if we’ll see him tonight though.

Edit: Lines for both teams have been updated.
