Tonight will be nearly the same line-up, as the Oilers face the Tampa Bay Lightning. The only difference will be in net, as Nikolai Khabibulin takes over duties. Devan Dubnyk has been pretty solid as of late, but the Oilers have a back-to-back game, as they play Florida tomorrow. So most assuredly, Dubnyk will start in tomorrow’s game.
Taylor Hall didn’t skate in today’s practice. “Bottom line it’s a concussion. He isn’t available to play tonight. I’m not sure if he’ll skate tomorrow but it’s day to day,” Renney stated on Hall.
Linus Omark will draw back in tonight, as Lennart Petrell is suffering from a groin injury and didn’t skate today.
Enjoy the game, folks!
