EDMONTON - Jordan Eberle tested out his wonky knee Friday morning during a brisk practice at Russ Barnes arena.

The Edmonton Oilers winger was forced to sit out Thursday’s 3-1 loss to the Buffalo Sabres, having been injured late in the win over the Nashville Predators two nights earlier.

Eberle was buried from behind by Predators defenceman Ryan Ellis early in the contest, but was actually injured in a collision late in the game.

“It was the last shift of the game, I collided with (Mike) Fisher and I tweaked it,” Eberle said. “It was real unlucky, but that’s part of the game.”

Eberle could be back in the lineup when the Oilers host the Calgary Flames Saturday (8 p.m.) at Rexall Place.

“It felt great (Friday),” Eberle said. “I really felt strong, I was trying to get my lungs under me and my legs and I really tried to push it at the end with some battles. It felt good today, we’ll see how it is tonight and tomorrow morning and then make a decision.”
