Player Notes

  • Close to return
    Henrique (ankle) is very close to being available to return to the lineup, Mark Lazerus of The Athletic reports.

    Advice: The Oilers hope to have Henrique back in action against Dallas for Monday's Game 3 or Game 4 on Wednesday. Henrique participated in pregame warmups before missing his seventh straight contest in Saturday's 3-1 loss to the Stars in Game 2. He has registered one goal, one assist, four shots on net and 22 hits in six appearances this postseason. The 34-year-old forward will probably occupy a middle-six role and see time on the second power-play unit once he receives the green light to return. Rotowire.com 45 minutes ago
  • Hands out helper
    Ceci logged an assist in Saturday's 3-1 loss to the Stars in Game 2.

    Advice: Ceci set up a Connor Brown goal in the first period. With a goal and an assist over his last three games, Ceci has doubled his scoring output for the playoffs. He's at four points, 15 shots on net, 19 hits, 16 blocked shots and a minus-6 rating over 14 appearances while playing in a bottom-four role. Rotowire.com Yesterday, 9:18 pm
  • Puts up assist
    Foegele logged an assist, two shots on goal, three hits and a minus-2 rating in Saturday's 3-1 loss to the Stars in Game 2.

    Advice: Foegele snapped an 11-game point drought dating back to Game 2 of the first round. The 28-year-old winger has a steady spot in the lineup, but he's seen a smaller role amid his slump. He has three points, 20 shots on net, 28 hits and a minus-9 rating over 14 playoff appearances while primarily working in a third-line role. Rotowire.com Yesterday, 9:16 pm
  • Nets lone goal in loss
    Brown scored a goal on three shots in Saturday's 3-1 loss to the Stars in Game 2.

    Advice: Brown tallied just 44 seconds after Jamie Benn's opening tally in the first period, tying the game at 1-1. The Oilers' offense couldn't solve Jake Oettinger again. Brown's goal was his first tally and second point in eight playoff appearances. He's added five shots on net, five hits, four PIM and a plus-2 rating while filling a bottom-six role with minimal ice time. Rotowire.com Yesterday, 9:14 pm
  • Decent in loss
    Skinner stopped 22 of 24 shots in Saturday's 3-1 loss to the Stars in Game 2. The third goal was an empty-netter.

    Advice: Skinner gave up a goal to Jamie Benn on a 2-on-1 in the first period, and Mason Marchment tipped in the game-winner in the third. It's tough to find much fault in Skinner's performance in his first loss in four starts, a span in which he's allowed a total of seven goals. The 25-year-old is 8-4 with a 2.65 GAA and an .890 save percentage over 12 playoff outings, though he's been better in recent games. Skinner will likely be between the pipes again for Monday's Game 3 in Edmonton. Rotowire.com Yesterday, 9:10 pm
