Oilers handle Flames

Sam Gagner and Jordan Eberle scored and added 1 victory over the Calgary Flames in this season's fifth installment of the Battle of Alberta at Scotiabank Saddledome.

Taylor Hall and Ryan Smyth contributed a goal and an assist each, while Ales Hemsky and Eric Belanger also scored for the Oilers, who snapped a three-game losing streak overall and a nine-game losing streak against Calgary. Devan Dubnyk made 21 saves in the victory.

Scott Hannan scored the only goal for the Flames, who failed to carry over momentum from a 1-0 win over the Los Angeles Kings on Saturday. Miikka Kiprusoff was touched for five goals on 34 shots and Henrik Karlsson gave up one goal on eight shots in defeat.
