The Calgary Flames started the 2006-2007 season on the road in Edmonton… and they might as well have stayed in Calgary. The Flames didn’t show up to play and fell 3-1 to the Oilers.
Edmonton came out running-and-gunning, and were rewarded with two 1st period goals from Peter Sykora. Daniel Tjarnqvist also scored in the 3rd period for the Oilers.
Calgary’s only goal came at 14:25 of the 3rd period when Jarome Iginla took a pass from Daymond Langkow and burned Dwayne Roloson’s hope of a shutout.
The back-to-back, Battle of Alberta start to the season shifts back to the Saddledome on Saturday for the Flames Home opener.
