Keys to a Flames victory, again come out hard. The Oilers have lost 4 straight and their confidence is shaken, do not let them gain any! The Oilers average over 32 shots against per game; the Flames must put the puck on net and force the Oilers speedy forwards to play deep in their own zone. Flames must also continue their strong face off success against the Oilers and control the game from the get go.
Things to keep an eye on, Taylor Hall has yet to find the back of the net and should be biting at the bit to shoot any puck he can get a stick on. Flames are finally getting to play more games without a few days breaks in between and hopefully we see consistency as a result. Keep an eye on Bourque everything he does right now turn into gold and hopefully that continues.
GO FLAMES GO
