The Calgary Flames entered Saturday night's Battle of Alberta with a real chance to play spoiler against the the Edmonton Oilers, but the Flames would fail to deliver.

Instead the Flames had to watch as the Oilers set numerous new records on the Flames' home ice at the Scotiabank Saddledome on their way to a 3-1 win over the Flames.

The win marked the 13th consecutive victory for the Oilers, establishing a new franchise record with no Oilers team of the past accomplishing such a feat. Additionally, the Oilers also established records for both the Western Conference and the entire country of Canada as the only NHL team from either category to ever rattle off 13 straight wins.

The Oilers also set a franchise record, in large part thanks to the solid play of goaltender Stuart Skinner, with their 11th straight game in which they allowed two or fewer goals. Skinner also established a more personal record, tying an Oilers record with his 10th straight victory for the Oilers.

It will be a night that the Oilers fan base will celebrate for some time, and unfortunately it may also be one that haunts the Calgary Flames fan base for the very same reasons.
