While Stroman was able to go toe-to-toe with Rangers ace Cole Hamels for most of the contest, he put the game-tying run on in the eighth, and Texas ultimately went ahead against LaTroy Hawkins in the 14th. Toronto now finds itself in a surprising 0-2 hole as the series heads to Arlington, but Stroman figures to start Game 5 if the Blue Jays can win the next two games.
Jordan Schroeder will be active for Saturday's game against the Blues, Michael Russo of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.
Schroeder, who was called up on an emergency basis Friday, will skate in place of Tyler Graovac (lower body) on Saturday night. He figures to work on the Minnesota Wild 's third line after lining up there during the team's morning skate.
Cam Talbot was the first goaltender off the ice at Saturday's morning skate which indicates he will get the start in net Saturday against Nashville, Bob Stauffer of 630 CHED reports.
Talbot played well in his first regular season start as an Oiler Thursday against the Blues. He turned away 28 of the 30 shots he faced, but didn't get any help from his teammates offensively, ultimately falling to St. Louis by a score of 3-1. He'll look to submit another solid performance Saturday against the Predators.
Justin Fontaine (oblique) will not play in Saturday's game against the Blues, Michael Russo of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.
Fontaine was able to return to practice earlier this week, but he is not ready for game action just yet. The Minnesota Wild do not play again until Thursday, so Fontaine could be ready to go next time the the team takes the ice.
Jeremy Ross was promoted from the Ravens' practice squad Saturday, the Baltimore Sun's Jeff Zrebiec reports.
He is expected to be the Ravens' primary kick returner and will also serve as the fifth wide receiver with Steve Smith and Breshad Perriman ailing.
