Preseason Game 3: Canucks At Oilers Preview

CANUCKS (1-1)
OILERS (1-1)

AT

Time Thurs. 6:00 PM PST
TV TSN

Not much or any info out there yet about rosters for tonight's game. Jim Jamieson offered what could be considered a little bit of light on the Canucks' end, saying that at practice on Wednesday the following Canucks forwards were lined up: Sedins-Burrows, Pinizzotto-Lapierre-Nolan, Sturm-Ebbett-Samuelsson and Higgins-Malhotra-Hansen. Jason Botchford mentioned that Vigneault rolled out the artillery on D: Bieksa-Hamhuis, Salo-Edler and Tanev-Ballard. Even so, this is not necessarily the roster that will play against the Oilers, as I read somewhere that AV said he'd ice a "mixed bag."

On Edmonton's side, no one knows. We might see Darcy Hordichuk (golf clap). We won't see Ben Eager as he suffered a concussion from being hit by one of his own teammates at the Joey Moss Cup. Maybe we'll see a Ryan Smyth-Nugent-Hopkins-Eberle line that beat Chicago on Tuesday. Edit: Roster updates after the jump.

No matter who plays, expect speed, skill and violence. Lineups will be revealed sometime tomorrow.

Thanks to Kent Basky for the heads up:

Apparently, Cody Hodgson is playing as well.

Have a butt-load of time to kill? How about watching 41 minutes of a retro game between the Oilers and Canucks from 1984?
