Joanne Ireland reports that Hemsky tried to skate but will not be able to play against the Predators. Joanne Ireland @jirelandEJ Hemsky tried to get into skate but is a no-go; Petrell & Eager in ... Peckham in for Potter on back end. #Oilers lines still TBD. As Ireland mentions, Corey Potter is out, Theo Peckham is in with Ryan Whitney. Chris VandeVelde was set down earlier today, which means that both Lennart Petrell and Ben Eager will play. It also likely means Ryan Smyth will be back at centre, where he has struggled throughout the year.
