Schedule set for Flames/Oilers Battle of Alberta playoff series

May 16 2022, 1:36 pm

Clear your schedule — the Calgary Flames and Edmonton Oilers are meeting once again in the playoffs.

After both teams ground out Game 7 wins — the Flames, by way of a Johnny Gaudreau overtime winner and the Oilers, through a gutsy yet dominant 2-0 win —  the Battle of Alberta is set to return to the NHL playoffs for the first time in over 30 years.

The two provincial rivals have faced off in five playoff series before, between 1983 and 1991. Edmonton won four of the five series. The only Flames win came from an infamous Game 7 own goal in overtime from Oilers defenceman Steve Smith.
