OIL SPILLS ...

With only 24 healthy bodies, the Oilers have only one more cut to make, a winger. ... Linus Omark, 26, has cleared waivers and will headline the Barons' No. 1 line. Omark appeared in 46 games with the Barons and played in 65 games with Edmonton in 2010-11 and 2011-12 but played last season in the Swiss pro league. ... The Oilers have won four consecutive preseason games. Edmonton is 5-1-1 heading into Friday night's preseason finale in OKC. ... Darnell Nurse, an 18-year-old defenseman, is the nephew of former Eagles quarterback Donovan McNabb. Nurse turned heads in Edmonton's training camp and almost made Edmonton's roster. Nurse was sent back to juniors but could reappear with the Barons or Oilers late this season.
