Tierney returned from illness Saturday against Edmonton and logged 11:46 in a 4-3 overtime win. He was pretty invisible to be honest. No shots, even on the power play, and just a 40 percent winning percentage in the face-off dot. The flu can take a lot out of anyone who gets it, pro hockey players included. It may take a couple more days for Tierney to get his strength back. However, you can put him back in your lineup if he's a better option than what you've got there now.
