Status Report

  • Henrique, a forward who moved to the top line early in the Stanley Cup Playoffs, will not play Game 1 and is on a day-to-day basis.
  • Janmark will move up from the fourth line, although Oilers coach Kris Knoblauch said a “committee” rotation will be used at that spot as the game progresses. Brown enters the lineup after being a healthy scratch in all five games of the first round.
