This was a rare start for Devan Dubnyk. Of course this is not due to poor play overall by Dubnyk, but rather that Nikolai Khabibulin is playing better hockey than he ever has as an Oiler. Unfortunately, Dubnyk is drawing the worst games even though on paper they may have been the easiest. The Carolina Hurricanes are last in the east and had just played in Calgary the night before. That sounds like an Oilers win.
About Oil Patch
Lisa McRitchie is a fairly new writer, online at least, but makes up for inexperience with passion for the game of hockey and memories of Mrs. Leskiw’s English AP class; who knew they would pay off one day.
Oil Patch focuses on the Edmonton Oilers, the Edmonton Oil Kings, The Oklahoma City Barons and Team Canada Hockey with game coverage, news updates, speculation and interviews.
Although the Oilers have had a difficult past decade… or three, here at Oil Patch, the future looks bright.
