The battle of Alberta never fails to disappoint. It feels like every time these two teams meet up they always leave us with something to talk about the next day, and Saturday night was no exception.
Saturday night was Darryl Sutter’s first night as head coach, although he wasn’t behind the bench as he still needs to quarantine before joining the team. It was a close game all the way through without much team giving much up in the way of offense. In the end McDavid lead his Oilers to a 3-2 win over the Flames.
During the game we got two really great tilts the first between Milan Lucic and Darnell Nurse, I don’t know if Lucic was just trying to show off for his new coach but he won that fight pretty decisively. Following that right the real deal James Neal dropped the gloves with Matthew Tkachuk in what looked like a draw.
These teams meet up six more times before the season is over, you won’t want to miss those.
