Right now it sounds like Hemsky is doubtful for tonights game (sick). The media seems to still want to bash him for his practice commitment (or lack of). It is what it is though. And well, if he’s sick, he’s sick. So if he doesn’t play, then I think the Oilers will go with the line up below. Otherwise I’m going to assume that there will be a fair difference in the 3rd/4th lines given that Gagner, Lander and Jones skated in practiced together yesterday.
Khabibulin starts tonight, which is at least good. Should be a tough game, although they all seem to be these days.
