Edmonton Oilers

Oilers forward Leon Draisaitl missed practice again Friday with a swollen eye and will not play Saturday against the Ottawa Senators, the team announced Friday.

 “The swelling has come down in the eye and he has a bit of vision in it,” McLellan said Thursday. “But it wasn’t safe to put him on the ice (Thursday) and it’s not something we’re going to fool around with until he’s 100 per cent ready to come back.” Winger Drake Caggiula missed his fifth straight practice as well. - Edmonton Sun, Ryan Rishaug, TSN

Leafs not blaming Andersen despite poor save percentage

Toronto has allowed 16 goals in four games this season and goalie Frederik Andersen has seen his save percentage plummet to .871. And yet the goalie is generally pleased with his play and head coach Mike Babcock is highlighting a lack of discipline and mental lapses as the reasons for the deluge of goals.
