Calgary Flames versus Edmonton Oilers

Scotiabank Saddledome

Calgary, Alberta

The Flames are home from the Holiday break and home from a successful 3-0-1 road trip as they host the Oilers tonight for the season finale of the Battle Of Alberta. Let’s check out today’s morning skate and get a look at what we can expect!

Our lineup starts in the blue paint, where Jacob Markstrom was in the starter’s net.

Per Pat Steinberg of Sportsnet 960:

Markstrom has won three straight games, stopping 69 of 76 shots faced along that span. He carries an 11-8-4 record into tonight’s contest, alongside an .894 Save Percentage and 2.84 Goals Against Average overall. In his last start against Edmonton, he suffered a 3-2 loss on October 29th.

In other notes from morning skate, the Flames have recalled forward Radim Zohorna from the AHL Wranglers after sending him down on December 23rd, just before the Christmas break. Forward Matthew Phillips and defenseman Nick DeSimone have gone the other way.

Zohorna was an extra skater this morning, as well as Dennis Gilbert who was placed on IR December 18th. He skated in a full face cage to protect his injury.
