Morning, folks.

Jeff’s right, of course. And for those paying attention that now marks the second time this season that an important Oiler was out with a head injury, was then rushed back into practice, and then forced to miss time again after because they were reintroduced too early.

Great. Thank god the Oilers’ playoff spot is effectively sewn up because I wouldn’t want to be super pumped to see them chasing one with these lines:

Why is it that the Oilers’ record on matters of player health and safety are generally so shit? Remember Sheldon Souray?

Anyway, have a good weekend everyone. Stay safe out there, and we’ll see you back tomorrow for our GAMEDAY coverage.
