The beat goes on and Edmonton Oilers captain Shawn Horcoff is getting fed up with it.

A 2-1 loss Tuesday to the Calgary Flames stretched the Oilers' losing streak in the Scotiabank Saddledome to nine straight, dating back to Oct. 17, 2008. Toss in the fact the Flames now have won 14 of the past 15 in the Battle of Alberta and the burn worsens.

Trouble is, there's very few players on this latest version of Oilers who were even around for that last strut in Calgary so the anger mode isn't quite what it should be. The streak doesn't factor into the pre-game preparation as heavily as it does for Horcoff.
