The Nuge makes his return to action tonight. Not sure on the lines yet, but I’m guessing they’ll want to keep the top two lines intact since they’ve been playing well and having success with them the last two games. Maybe even easing Nuge back into the lineup on the 3rd line would be good. Tom Renney will also return to the bench tonight.
If you live in a hole, you may have missed that Ales Hemsky re-signed last night. Some love the idea, some don’t. Count me as one of the people that loves the idea. It’s actually barely any different than his last contract (which just about everyone thought was a bargain), so I don’t see the big deal, even if Madonna doesn’t like it.
OILERS LINES (projected)
Smid – Petry
Whitney – Potter
Sutton – Gilbert
