Anton Lander is expected to be a healthy scratch in Game 2 against the Anaheim Ducks on Friday night.

Lander was limited to 22 games during the regular season and he still hasn't suited up for the Oilers in the postseason. Mark Fayne, Griffin Reinhart, Iiro Pakarinen, Nick Ellis, Jordan Oesterle, Eric Gryba and Matt Hendricks will also watch from the press box. None of these players carry any fantasy value.
