CALGARY, Alberta (Ticker) -- The Calgary Flames return from a four-game road trip and conclude the season series with the provincial rival Edmonton Oilers on Tuesday night at the Pengrowth Saddledome.

Calgary, which is seeking its first playoff berth since 1996, is coming off a 7-1 romp at Colorado on Sunday to complete a 2-2 trip.

Craig Conroy had a goal and two assists and Oleg Saprykin tallied twice in the third period. Jarome Iginla notched his 35th goal and Jordan Leopold and Krzysztof Oliwa also tallied for the Flames, who are tied with Nashville for sixth place in the Western Conference.

"We were pretty hungry," Iginla said Sunday. "If you look at the standings, we need these games. Every line seemed to keep feeding off one another and we got some goals."

Edmonton is 10th in the West, four points behind St. Louis and Los Angeles, which are tied for the final playoff berth.

The Oilers are 8-3-1-1 in their last 13 games and moved over .500 for the first time since November 26 with Sunday's 4-3 overtime win at Chicago.

Rookie Jarret Stoll scored 44 seconds into overtime with a fluttering shot from 30 feet. Defenseman Eric Brewer also scored twice as Edmonton improved its road record to 11-15-7-2. Tommy Salo made 20 saves and improved to 17-18-6. Earlier Tuesday, the Oilers traded Salo and a sixth-round pick in the 2005 draft to the Colorado Avalanche for unsigned defenseman Tom Gilbert.

Calgary leads the season series, 4-0-0-1, with all but one of the games being decided by one goal.
