You can see where this is going.
As the Edmonton Oilers face the Calgary Flames in their 2nd round NHL playoff series, the first series between the teams in 31 years, hockey fans have dubbed the contests The Battle of Alberta.
Brett Kissel left no doubt as to which team he was rooting for, when he issued this friendly wager to George Canyon on social media yesterday.
Ever the good sport, George Canyon responded to Brett Kissel with the following post.
I wasn’t sure who I would cheer for in this series, but after watching the above videos, I’m thinking of cheering for the Flames.
It would be a shame for George Canyon to have to shave that glorius duster, is all I’m saying.
The Flames shot out to an early lead in the series last night, after a barn-burner of a game that saw 15 goals split between the two teams.
Game 2 between the Calgary Flames and the Edmonton Oilers goes Friday night at 10:30pm ET.
