The Oilers could be adding none, one or two blueliners to their backend Sunday in Nashville. Both Darnell Nurse and Adam Larsson are nearing their return from injuries. Forward Benoit Pouliot, however, is still working his way back and is not likely an option against the Predators.
"Darnell Nurse skated, Adam Larsson skated and Benoit Pouliot skated," Oilers Head Coach Todd McLellan said after practice Saturday in Nashville. "I would doubt very much Benoit is ready to go but with the other two there's a potential of them playing."
Larsson's last game was February 21, in Tampa. Nurse has been out quite a bit longer, and when he gets back into the lineup it will be his first action since December 1, in Winnipeg.
