The first outdoor game of the 2023-24 NHL season will take place on Sunday between the Calgary Flames and Edmonton Oilers.

One of the NHL's most marketable rivalries, the battle of Alberta brings high intensity hockey that feels playoff-like.

Edmonton was expected to be without Connor McDavid, but he has been practicing and he is possibly going to make his return.

Given how the Oilers have started out, they could not afford to have McDavid out for too long.


On the other hand, the Flames are going to be playing with defenseman Rasmus Andersson, who was suspended four games by the NHL for an illegal check on Columbus forward Patrik Laine.

Neither team is off to the start they had hoped for, Edmonton is 1-4-1 and have not been able to keep the puck out of their own net.

Calgary's record is 2-4-1, with a lack of offensive production coming throughout their lineup.

Considering the high pressure these two teams are under after their lackluster starts, Sunday's game will be an important one for the standings.
