BLOG: Gazdic likely in, Hendricks a question says coach

by Marc Ciampa / Edmonton Oilers

Matt Hendricks skated with the team to start practice on Tuesday in Anaheim but as soon as battle drills began he skated to the dressing room.

Coach McLellan said there are still a lot that needs to be determined before he can pencil in his lineup for the Ducks tomorrow.

“We’ve got to evaluate where we’re at health wise. Obviously Matty Hendricks was a question mark after the pre-game skate in Chicago and didn’t play. He’s had two days here to recover and had a light skate today. We’ll see how he is tomorrow,” he said. “Our decisions will be made tomorrow, probably right at game time.”

One thing he did strongly hint at was that Luke Gazdic was a possibility to return to the lineup.

“We’ll have to get Gaz back into the games here soon. It’s a big strong team so it’s probably a good night for him to play. The rest we’ll decide as we go.”
