Rivalries & Top Games to Attend

Battle of Alberta

Rival Team: Calgary Flames

It doesn’t get any better than the Battle of Alberta. There is a strong rivalry between the two cities and it extends to the ice as well. The Oilers and Flames bitter rivalry dates back to 1980 when the Flames relocated to Calgary from Atlanta and has been going strong ever since. The rivalry was at its peak in the 1980s when the two teams were regular contenders for the Cup. Even though both teams have struggled recently, you’ll still find an incredible atmosphere at a Oilers-Flames game.

Oilers vs Kings

Rival Team: Los Angeles Kings

The Oilers-Kings rivalry has been going strong since the Oilers entered the league in 1979. In the Oilers’ first season the young Wayne Gretzky challenged the Kings’ Marcel Dionne for the Art Ross Trophy. The two teams met in the playoffs several times throughout the 1980s, and in 1988 the unthinkable happened when Gretzky was traded to the Kings. The rivalry may not be as fierce as it once was due to the Oilers recent struggles but once they turn the corner, you should find excellent matchups between the Oilers and Kings.

Oilers vs Jets

Rival Team: Winnipeg Jets

The Oilers and Jets rivalry goes back to the WHA and 1972. The Jets dominated the Oilers in the early going winning three AVCO Cups, but once the teams joined the NHL the tables turned with the Oilers becoming a dynasty. The two teams haven’t met in the playoffs in a long time, but that doesn’t mean these two Canadian fan bases don’t have a strong dislike for each other.
