Well it’s a PPV night tonight. I likely won’t be around tonight on the chat, but hopefully there’s a few of you guys around here to keep each other company.
No lines anywhere that I can find just yet, but here are the presumed lines based on yesterday’s practice lines:
Oilers Projected Line-Up (per TSN)
Jacques – Horcoff – Hemsky
Stone – Comrie – O’Sullivan
Penner – Brule – Nilsson
Cogliano – Gagner – Stortini
Souray – Staios
Smid – Visnovsky
Gilbert – Grebeshkov
Stars Projected Lineup
Neal – Richards – Eriksson
Morrow – Ribeiro – Benn
Ott – Wandell – Brunnstrom
Barch – Sutherby – Petersen
Skrastins – Daley
Grossman – Robidas
Woywitka – Niskanen
Some notes: Moreau and Horcoff missed this morning’s skate. Moreau is said to be injured, I believe an ankle injury. Not sure about Horcoff, but it’s not likely that the morning skate was an optional one. Hopefully he’s in the lineup tonight though and it’s nothing serious.
For the Stars, Jere Lehtinen skated today, but it’s still unsure whether he will be in tonights game. Mike Modano is also questionable for tonights game. More on that later.
