Facing the Oilers on Wednesday in the Battle of Alberta for the second time in five days, Jooris knows the value of beating the Flames' provincial rival, who snapped a nine-game losing streak (0-7-2) in a 3-2 shootout win Tuesday against the defending Stanley Cup champion Los Angeles Kings.
"They're coming off a big win," said Jooris, who will return to the lineup after missing three games with an upper-body injury. "I think it's kind of a fresh start. They're 1-1 in the post-Christmas break. Any team in this League is dangerous. You can't take any team in this League for granted. The fact that we beat them in our building a couple of nights ago, I think that's some extra fire for them. We can't worry about them; we just have to worry about our game tonight."
