The Oilers have announced that Shawn Horcoff is not going to be in the lineup tonight when the Oilers take on the Sharks. That announcement triggers a couple of other moves that have been announced via the Oilers Twitter account.
Coach Krueger announces the #Oilers have called up Anton Lander since Shawn Horcoff (sore neck) is out for tonight's game— Edmonton Oilers (@EdmontonOilers) January 31, 2013
So that means the lineup tonight will include both Anton Lander and Darcy Hordichuk, a situation that is certainly less than ideal. Things get worse for the Oilers though as Lennart Petrell is also a game time decision. Just in case he can't go tonight, the Oilers will skate all seven defenceman in the warmup tonight.
