CALGARY - Well, they can beat the Calgary Flames, so the Edmonton Oilers have that going for them.

In a year where very little (and by very little, we mean nothing) is going right, the Oilers managed to play a little sunshine into their dressing room Saturday.

In a grudge match to see whose re-build is further ahead, the Oilers in Year 5 or Flames in Year 1, the Oilers fought back from a terrible scare to score four straight third period goals and salvage a 4-2 victory.
