Oilers defenceman Jeff Petry did not participate in today’s skate in Buffalo. However, it may not be serious as the blueliner could be ready as soon as tomorrow. Head Coach Dallas Eakins provided a brief but optimistic update.
“Day-to-day,” Eakins said. “I think we’re hopeful that he’ll play tomorrow, but you never know. He took that heater in the foot. We had a couple of guys take those, but his got him in a very tender part of his foot.”
