Edmonton Oilers captain Shawn Horcoff is expected to be out “long term” after suffering a broken knuckle while blocking a shot in the second quarter against the Vancouver Canucks. “It got pushed right in,” said Oilers coach Ralph Krueger. “The glove opens up just a touch and it’s not an injury that really is something that’s due to some kind of contact of any sort. He was just playing hockey, blocking a shot.” The Oilers lost in overtime to the Canucks 3-2. “We’re going to have to regroup quickly.” Krueger said.
