EDMONTON, Alberta (Ticker) - The Calgary Flames have had a solid December and are beginning to remind some people of their Stanley Cup title team of 1988-1989.

The Flames try to win for the sixth time in seven outings Monday when they meet the Edmonton Oilers for the fourth time this season.

Calgary is off to its best start since winning its only Stanley Cup championship and is 5-0-1 in its last six visits to Edmonton. The Flames have taken two of three encounters against their provincial rival this season.

Goaltender Miikka Kiprusoff tied a franchise record with his league-leading fifth shutout of the season by making 26 saves in Calgary's 3-0 triumph over the Boston Bruins on Saturday.

Tony Amonte scored his ninth goal, rookie defenseman Dion Phaneuf added his second and Stephane Yelle had a shorthanded tally for the Flames, who have won their last three contests.

The Oilers do not have a regulation loss in seven games this month and can tie Calgary for second place in the Northwest Division with a win.

Shawn Horcoff scored a shorthanded goal in the third period and Michael Peca added the game-winner in overtime Saturday as the Oilers rallied for a 5-4 victory over the division-leading Vancouver Canucks.
