UPDATE: Ok, now they’re saying 2-4 weeks. Well, poop. Damn it, Gene.
Tonight the Oilers will take on the Nashville Predators. The Oilers have won both games this season. The last meeting (last Tuesday) was a fairly handy 6-2 victory in which they chased Pekka Rinne out of the net.
Taylor Hall will be absent from this one, after injuring his shoulder (twice) on Saturday vs. the Avalanche. He’ll have an MRI on it today. Ben Eager also seems to have hurt his back in practice. Not sure how serious it is. On a more positive note, it looks like Andy Sutton could return to the line up very soon.
Some good news for Paajarvi tonight.. he’ll finally stop being screwed in the line up and will play with Horcoff and Hemsky. He should get quite a few minutes tonight to try and strut his stuff. About time. Make the best of it, kid.
