The Edmonton Oilers face a do-or-stay home Game 6 against the Anaheim Ducks on Sunday evening. The team will be without the services of defenseman Andrej Sekera.
Head coach Todd McLellan ruled out Sekera for Game 6, and should the Oilers win, a possible Game 7 back in Anaheim. The Oilers did not reveal the nature of the injury; however, the Edmonton Journal reports Sekera sustained a left-leg injury.
In the first period of Game 5, the 6-foot, 198-pound Sekera went shoulder-to-shoulder hit with the 6-foot-4, 221-pound raging bull Ryan Getzlaf, sending the Oiler d-man into the boards.
