Taylor Hall was pulled from Friday night's 4-2 loss to the St. Louis Blues because of a leg strain but the Edmonton Oilers' star doesn't think the injury is serious and is hoping to play Sunday.
Hall lost his balance and slid into the boards in the second period, felt a strain in his leg and was immediately pulled. "Stretched it out a bit, fell awkwardly and just stretched it," he said. "I tried one more shift and it didn't feel right. When it comes to groins and hamstrings it's better to be safe than sorry." He's hoping to be back for Sunday's game in Minnesota, which is about the only shred of good news that came out of the Oilers' sixth consecutive loss.
