Coach Ken Hitchcock was thrilled to have Kris Russell back in the lineup.
Russell missed 10 games with a groin injury and the Oilers have really had their problems with both he and Oscar Klefbom missing from the blueline. "We just saw the impact of Kris Russell," Hitchcock said. "It makes you really want to get Klefbom in, too, because the plays Russ made back there helped with our composure and helped you understand why we were on our (8-2-1) run. With composure you’re going to get yourself out of all kinds of trouble instead of in trouble." Russell is a great shot blocker and has fantasy value if you play with the category. Jan 7 - 8:09 AM
