Game Night "Flames"

It's the land of our enemies, our arch nemesis to the south. It's the city that likes to boast of their great success. It's the 'tale of two cities'
 
Both of these franchises are headed in different directions but don't tell that to GM of the Flames, Jay Feaster. Calgary still has enough veteran experience and enough grit and skill to still beat the Edmonton Oilers on any given night. The difference now? Well as far as our forward crop of players, Edmonton can stand their ground and battle toe to toe. In goal, that is a toss up on any given night, Edmonton is never really sure what they have til the night's done. On defence, the Oilers are lacking, but don't tell that to the defence who has allowed only 7 goals against in 4 games (I don't count the shootout loss that counts as a goal).
 
Tonight I expect will not be a low scoring affair as these two teams seem to bring both the worst and the best out of each other. Question is, which does it bring tonight, and for whom?
 
 
My predictions for tonight's game at the Saddledome. Gametime 7:30pm CHED630am/SportsnetWest
 
REV'S Edmonton Oiler

Gameday Predictions Oct 18th/11


1. Edmonton can't keep teams to less then 3 goals for much longer, so I am saying at least three goals find the back of the Edmonton net tonight in Calgary.
2. Tonight is the night where 1 goal is scored by Edmonton where a RYAN is not awarded a point.
3. There will be a minimum of 1 fight tonight between the Flames and Oilers
4. No player on the 4th line will see more then 7 Mins total ice time.
5. Belanger will continue to shine in the faceoff dot and record at least 60% average in faceoff wins.

(EV'S PREDICTIONS TO DATE: 3 FOR 5)

As the great Ed Whalen used to say "In the meantime and in between time, that's it, for another edition of...REV'S PREDICTION" (bolded words are not Whalen's words)
