Preview: Flames vs. Oilers

by Torie Peterson / Calgary Flames

PENTICTON, BC -- The Calgary Flames will look to lock up their second victory at the 2014 Young Stars Classic when they take on the Edmonton Oilers on Saturday night.

Calgary collected a 6-4 victory over the Winnipeg Jets on Friday night. The line of Michael Ferland, Markus Granlund, and Josh Jooris combined for eight points in the win and Joni Ortio made 22 saves.

The Flames-Oilers game starts at 8:30 PM MT and the Sport Chek stream can be viewed on CalgaryFlames.com, the Calgary Flames app, or the Calgary Flames YouTube channel.

PLAYERS TO WATCH*

FLAMES: Michael Ferland started the tournament with a three-point effort on Friday, scoring two goals and an assist against the Winnipeg Jets. Despite the fact Ferland had not played since Dec. 15 due to a lower body injury, the hulking forward didn't look like he missed a step during Friday's 6-4 win and he likely will carry that momentum over on Saturday.

OILERS: Russian forward Bogdan Yakimov showed off his sniping skills on Friday, going top shelf on the Canucks in the second period. He is back in the lineup tonight and the Oilers are hoping to see more of that kind of offensive production from him.

"He played a solid game and scored a heck of a goal. I'm looking forward to watching him play again tonight," Oklahoma head coach Todd Nelson said on Saturday morning.

He and linemate Vladimir Tkachev will play alongside Josh Winquist tonight.
