Hola, Amigos! Typing this one up from Mexico. The girlfriend and I got sick last night (her Bronchitis, me a fever that she had to go along with it). Nothing too major, thanks to the fantastic doctors here in Mazatlan (and I say that with absolutely no sarcasm.. they are great, and it embarrasses me how slow our system is). Anyways.. on to the game.
Tom Gilbert was absolutely destroyed yesterday by Dan Carcillo. However, in true Gilbert fashion, it was a mere flesh wound. He won’t be back for tonight’s game, but word is that his knee feels better, and he’ll try a skate in St. Louis tomorrow (per Jim Matheson of the Edmonton Journal on Twitter). The Nuge… I still have yet to hear much on him. They’re flying him back to Edmonton to have our doctors look at him. Insert hysterical laughter and sighs here. Don’t screw this one up, Oilers medical staff!!!
