There was a time when the Battle of Alberta was the best rivalry in hockey and one of the best rivalries in all of sport. Last Saturday, the rivalry took an odd turn when the Calgary Flames thrashed the Edmonton Oilers 8-1 in front of a hostile crowd at the Rexall Centre. The loss cemented the fact that the Oilers will miss the playoffs for an eighth consecutive season.
How hostile was it? A fan had enough and decided to throw his jersey on the ice. Oilers goalie Ben Scrivens angrily scooped up the crumpled sweater with his goal stick, and flung back into the crowd. After the game, Scrivens went on a rant that had the media salivating.
“Call me whatever name you want, but when it comes to that logo, that’s a sacred thing.” – Ben Scrivens | VIDEO > http://t.co/iQnp6pRTtU
