The Oil need Souray’s bomb from the point to be in full gear tonight.

Bourque has been a pleasant surprise for the Flames, and has put together a solid December.

Last Ten Games:
Oilers (5-4-1) … Flames (6-1-3)
The Battle of Alberta rivalry is renewed tonight, and it’s a big one! Edmonton lost to the lowly Senators at home last night, while the Flames are coming off a tight win against Minnesota. I expect a better effort from the Oilers tonight, but Calgary is hungry for a win against their rivals.
Prediction: Flames 4, Oilers 2
The rest of tonight’s predictions:
Islanders over Panthers
Sharks over Wild
Coyotes over Avalanche
Hurricanes over Thrashers
Stars over Devils
Ducks over Blue Jackets
