Dallas Stars (7-5-1, 15 pts) @ Edmonton Oilers (3-4-3, 9 pts)
8:30 PM CT
Scotiabank Saddledome, Calgary, Alberta, Canada
Goals – 20th, Goals Against – 24th, Power Play – 6th, Penalty Kill – 24th
Things haven’t gone so well for the Flames as of late. They’re off to a slow start to the season and recently lost starting goal Miikka Kiprusoff to an MCL injury. Their defense has been porous and their offense has sputtered when two of their top centers were injured.
In other words, if Dallas wants to break their back-to-back games curse there’s no better time than tonight.
Calgary comes into this game pretty well rested (only 10 games played so far and only one back-to-back to start off their season) but injuries have decimated their top players.
Alex Tanguay leads the team with nine points and is tied with four other players with five assists. Lee Stempniak leads the Flames with five goals and Jarome Iginla is off to a slow start ...
