Battle of Alberta Back

It had disappeared in recent years but this past home and home series between the Calgary Flames and Edmonton Oilers has rekindled the hatred between the two Alberta rivals. 

After Calgary suffered through an embarrassing 5-0 defeat they came back to destroy Edmonton 4-1, and in all honesty Calgary’s win was the more dominant of the two.

The battle has lacked intensity in recent times, but with the number of fights, hits and all around chippy plays these past two games have created a dislike for the opposing team that has been missing for quite some time.

  1. Good point. Battle of AB hasn’t been the same since the days of Semenko and Hunter. The last two games split between the two teams has shown some decent physicality, and was much more enjoyable than most.
