Oilers Recall Gerber

29

According to the Oilers, goaltender Nikolai Khabibulin has been placed on IR and Martin Gerber has been recalled. So much for the idea that Khabibulin had received a mercy pull in last night's showing against the Blackhawks at Rexall Place. The story breaking today is that Khabibulin has sustained a groin injury. Gerber was visually and statistically the Oilers best goaltender during pre-season. This may make Oilers games far more enjoyable at least for a little while.
