Calgary (34-18-6) at Edmonton (29-25-4) 10:00 p.m. EST

EDMONTON, Alberta (Ticker) -- The Calgary Flames look to
continue their winning ways on the road Saturday when they visit
the Edmonton Oilers.

The Flames are 4-0-2 over their last six games following four
straight regulation losses and have won each of their last three
contests away from home, including a 3-2 overtime victory
against the Minnesota Wild on Thursday.

Defenseman Adrian Aucoin scored the game-winning goal with 70
seconds left in the extra session for Calgary, which owns the
top spot in the Northwest Division with 74 points, eight more
than the second-place Vancouver Canucks (29-21-8).

The Flames can move closer to the division title against their
Northwest rival Oilers, who return home after dropping the last
two meetings of a four-game road trip.

Edmonton endured a pair of 4-2 losses to the San Jose Sharks and
Dallas Stars to conclude the swing and have managed two goals or
fewer in of its last 10 losses. The Oilers are 10-1-0 when
recording three or more tallies since the calendar turned to
2009.
