"I don't think location is a huge priority right now. We need to get a win and it doesn't much matter where," said general manager Craig MacTavish, whose Oilers have won three straight at Scotiabank Saddledome. "We've had great history against the Flames and great rivalries against the Flames for many, many years. I think it's dying down a little bit right now, but we're in search of a win, for sure."
The Oilers (7-21-7) haven't won in eight straight games and have one win in their past 20.
They'll line up against the Flames (18-15-3), who themselves have just one win in their previous nine. It came in the Flames final game before the holiday break by way of a 4-3 overtime win Monday against the Los Angeles Kings.
