CALGARY, Alberta (Ticker) -- The Calgary Flames will aim for
their fourth straight victory Wednesday when they host the
Edmonton Oilers in the latest edition of the "Battle of
Alberta."

The Flames have been one of the NHL's hottest clubs for more
than a month, posting a 10-2-3 record over their last 15
contests.

Miikka Kiprusoff made 22 saves and Eric Nystrom ended a 25-game
scoring drought with a shorthanded goal, lifting Northwest
Division-leading Calgary to a 2-1 victory over the Minnesota
Wild on Monday.

Kiprusoff is 21-10-3 with a 2.81 goals-against average, .902
save percentage and three shutouts this season.

The Oilers had their three-game winning streak snapped Tuesday,
suffering a 3-2 setback to the Ottawa Senators

Captain Ethan Moreau and rookie Liam Reddox tallied and Shawn
Horcoff had two assists for Edmonton, which has not won four in
a row since the start of the season.

The Oilers won both their previous meetings with the Flames this
season.
