by Marc Ciampa / Edmonton Oilers
The Oilers practiced on Friday at Penn University in Philadelphia.

Lines (based on jersey colour):

Perron-RNH-Eberle (dark blue)
Hemsky-Hall-Gagner (light blue)
Joensuu-Acton/Gordon-Arcobello (black)
Gazdic-Smyth-Yakupov/Jones (white)

Defencemen (orange): Petry, Belov, Smid, Ference, N.Schultz, Larsen, Fedun

Justin Schultz skated on his own prior to practice.

There were two lines which had four players on it. Gazdic, Smyth, Jones and Yakupov were wearing white jerseys and Acton, Joensuu, Gordon and Arcobello were wearing black.

Oilers head coach Dallas Eakins said that we shouldn't read too much into the lines.

"I’m undecided because I don’t know if Joensuu or Perron are going to play. I was concerned with getting those guys on a line and we might have to reshuffle the deck quickly in the morning if those guys can’t play," stated Eakins.  

The head coach also said that there wasn't much to having Yakupov on the fourth line with three others.

"I wouldn’t read anything into that."
