STEVE MacFARLANE -- Calgary Sun

, Last Updated: 8:24 AM ET

G BRENT KRAHN: Started and played well while his team was shorthanded and made a miraculous glove save on Robbie Schremp in close.

D DION PHANEUF: Worked hard to bounce back from a sub-par performance Monday by throwing his body around in front of the net.

D STEVE MONTADOR: Was the Flames' best d-man Monday but wasn't as impressive last night.

C STEPHANE YELLE: Got physically involved in the corners and aggressively killed penalties.

RW SHEAN DONOVAN: Didn't have the same jump alongside Jason Wiemer and Matthew Lombardi as he does with Marcus Nilson and Yelle.

C MATTHEW LOMBARDI: Hustled and forechecked during rare 5-on-5 opportunities.

RW CHUCK KOBASEW: Picked up where he left off Monday night with aggressive, confident play.

LW LYNN LOYNS: Didn't see much ice time because of all the special-teams play.

LW ERIC NYSTROM: Was one of the most exciting Flames, which wasn't saying much last night.

LW DARREN MCCARTY: Did his best to inspire teammates and led all Flames in the hit category but not much worked in his favour.

LW MARCUS NILSON: Stole a couple of pucks but spent a lot of time on his heels killing all the penalties.

C STEVE REINPRECHT: Had Oilers draped all over him and couldn't find enough room on the ice to make things happen.

D ROBYN REGEHR: Looked comfortable quarterbacking powerplay with younger brother Richie.

LW CRAIG MACDONALD: Ice time was really limited.

LW BRANDON PRUST: Dropped the gloves with Raffi Torres, possibly to wake up his teammates.

D RHETT WARRENER: Like most of his teammates, Warrener seemed to be fighting to maintain control of the puck.

D MARK GIORDANO: Did a good job on defence by keeping his body in position to avoid obstruction penalties.

D RICHIE REGEHR: One of many victims that fell prey to obstruction calls after being beat by a forward.
