if we get kings vs. stars instead of battle of alberta i will be suing the national hockey league.
For the sixth time ever and first in 31 years, the ‘Battle of Alberta’ will be featured in the #StanleyCup Playoffs. The @EdmontonOilers own a 4-1 series record over the @NHLFlames, but who will win the next iteration? #NHLStats:.
As much as I want biz to be forced to shave the top of his head with a Calgary loss I can not in good conscience root for Dallas in this game. They are so bad and without Oettinger would be down 7-2. The bet should rightfully be settled with the Battle of Alberta.
A familiar foe will await the @EdmontonOilers in the Second Round. Will we see the first “Battle of Alberta” in the #StanleyCup Playoffs in 31 years or will the Oilers reignite another old playoff rivalry with a club they’ve met 8 times before? #NHLStats:.
society if we got the battle of florida and the battle of alberta in the same playoffs.
We are really one Flames win away from: 1) First playoff series win since 2015 2) Second playoff series win since 2005 3) Battle of Alberta 4) My sanity remaining No pressure :).
If Calgary can’t deliver a Battle of Alberta playoff series tonight then they should be shunned by all of Canada.
I think the Battle of Alberta was really built in the 80s. But for Oiler fans who came to the team in the 90s, the Stars were the real nemesis. And that one win in 1997 (and the one vs the Avs in ‘98) carried the fandom right until the Oilers Cup Final run in 2006..
Round 2 of the Stanley Cup playoffs will feature one of the oldest and most heated rivalries in hockey 👀 @robpizzo lists 9 Battle of Alberta moments…in 90 seconds ⏰.
I don’t know much about the Battle of Alberta or Battle of Florida, but it’s nice that for once it has nothing to do with mask mandates..
This potential Cup Playoffs round 2 would be fire: -Battle of Florida -Battle of Alberta -Fierce rematch of Avs/Blues -Potential last dance of the Pens trio vs. the former Pen in Staal who was once a core big 5 Pen with that trio. We need these match-ups..
We’re *this* close to getting the Battle of Alberta in Round 2. Don’t screw this up, Flames..
Hoping the Flames can take care of business tomorrow night, the Battle of Alberta would be incredible..
@DonTaylor5 3 for 3. Leafs lose. Bruins lose. And the Battle of Alberta still a possibility..
Calgary PLEASE beat Dallas. A playoff edition of the Battle of Alberta would be awesome. Tkachuk. Looch. Kane. Kassian. McDavid. Gaudreau. Cagey vet Sutter versus new kid on the block Woodcroft. The passion of the fanbases. Amazing rivalry..
GAME 7. It’s do or die here tonight, and words cannot describe how badly this Flames fan wants a Battle Of Alberta in the next round of playoffs! GO FLAMES! 🔥 #FireItUp #Flames.
The stage is set. A second round full of grudge matches. The Battle of Alberta. The Battle of Florida. The battle of uhhh the greater Colorado-Kansas-Missouri region. The battle of uhhhhhh Tony DeAngelo.
For the OG Flames/Oilers bloggers - the Battle of Alberta blog is back.
For the first time in 31 years, the Battle of Alberta is back on in the postseason. We’ve got everything you need to know about how the Flames & Oilers stack up, while @MarissaRoberto chronicles the continued misery for Maple Leafs fans after yet another Game 7 loss.
Alright Flames, balls in your court Battle of Alberta series the entire world is waiting for, all you gotta do is win.
Often get asked what’s the best series I’ve ever covered. 4 or 5 stand out, but my usual go to response is ‘91 Battle of Alberta. It’s hard to believe we’ve all had to wait this long for the sequel. It has the potential to be my new favourite series!.
@spittinchiclets Calgary and NYR. Bettman wanted battle of Florida and Alberta for ratings. Wes mccauly his right hand man in getting it done.
Generally concerned that if round 2 is a Battle of Alberta, neither team will have a healthy roster left to play in round 3….
Everyone wants The Battle of Alberta One man stands in the way.
It’s that time of year! Battle of Alberta POUR IT ON #PourItOn.
I was hoping #LetsGoOilers won last night so we can see a Battle of Alberta in the second round So game 7 tonight for #Flames is going to be reeeeeeal interesting.
As much as I love the lightning, a battle of Alberta playoff series is going to be legendary..
I was one when the last Battle of Alberta took place. Great to be a hockey fan in this province right now! Sure hoping for a Flames win tomorrow! #LetsGoOilers #Flames.
This thread is it. The Battle of Alberta is for older people. The Dallas Stars are mg generations nemesis..
For all things that a true and just in this world, Canada needs a battle of Alberta in second round playoffs. We need this! Go Flames! 🔥.
