Mason Raymond scored three goals and the Calgary Flames spoiled the season opener for their provincial rivals, beating the Edmonton Oilers 5-2 on Thursday night.

Jiri Hudler and T.J. Brodie also scored for the Flames, who lost 4-2 at home to Vancouver in their first game Wednesday night.

Teddy Purcell and Taylor Hall scored for the Oilers.

Calgary silenced the home crowd early with a goal 3 minutes into the game when Joe Colborne made a nice feed to Mark Giordano in the slot. Giordano's shot was tipped by Raymond past Edmonton goalie Ben Scrivens. It was Raymond's 100th career NHL goal.

Exactly a minute later, the Flames went up 2-0 when Sean Monahan got the puck on a defensive miscue behind the Edmonton net and passed in front to Hudler, who scored on Calgary's third shot.
