Injury update…

By , March 12, 2010 9:56 am

D Ryan Whitney took a shot off the inside of his right knee late in the second period, hobbled off the ice and did not return for the third. He’ll be X-rayed and evaluated Friday. Ethan Moreau’s stiff neck is getting better, but he still sat out Thursday night. Patrick O’Sullivan lost the nail on his left ring finger after a first period slash Tuesday against Ottawa, but it’s not broken. He might re-join the team sometime on this four-game trip. – Edmonton Sun

Hemsky done for the season…

So, with Hemsky out, the Oilers faced the number 1 San Jose Sharks and came out ok, losing 5-4 in the shootout. All things considered, that’s pretty damn good. They got there on great games by Potulny, Brule, Cogliano, Penner and a few others.

So that said, do the Oilers have it in them to be competitive? They will need some guys to step up to do so… will it be Potulny and Brule? Or will it be someone else? Should Tambellini go out and sign some help? He has stated already that he’s going to wait and see for now how these guys can handle things (how many times have we heard that line?). Gotta give him one thing.. he’s a patient GM.

Weigh in, in the comments.

Oilers Injury Update

Sheldon Souray and Steve Staios still remain out of the line up. Word is, Souray could miss as much as a month. Of course, Fernando Pisani and Marc Pouliot are also out of the line up.

Gilbert Brule recently went down with the flu (before the last game, against Vancouver). He will likely miss tomorrow’s game but could be back Saturday. Ladislav Smid also has now caught the flu. It is expected that if either player miss Thursday’s game, Steve MacIntyre will get the nod. He was at practice today playing on the blueline. MacIntyre has played both defence and forward in his pre-Oiler career.
