This has got to be a goalie’s worst nightmare, especially for Devan Dubnyk, who has been under the microscope recently in Edmonton. Nashville’s David Legwand dumped the puck into the offensive zone, presumably to make a line change, but the puck ended up bouncing right past Dubnyk and into the Oilers net. We’ve seen plenty of flukey goals blasted in from the red line, but this was a gentle lob, at best.  You’ve got to feel for Dubnyk though—he’ll be re-living this goal in the highlight reel for years to come, but all that matters is how he responds to it. He can shake it off, maybe laugh about it, and move on—or he can let it creep inside his head and throw him off, leaving the door wide open for the next young goaltending prospect. Judging by the final score of the game (6-0 Nashville), the Oilers have a bit of work to do. [NHL.com] Article found on: Cosby Sweaters

Hartikainen practically skated over the prone Dubnyk, who was...

Are the Wings looking to deal Ian White at the trade deadline?

Thursday night’s 3-0 win over the Edmonton Oilers saw Jimmy Howard earn his 2nd shutout of the season as the Wings continue to limit the oppositions scoring especially over the first two periods. In fact over the last five games the Wings have allowed just five regulation goals going 3-1-1 during that span. All this too is being done without veteran defenseman Ian White who last...

David Legwand beats Devan Dubnyk on one-hopper from the red line

Nashville Predators forward David Legwand was dumping the puck in for a line-change late in the first period.  Legwand flipped the puck in the air, and as it was on edge, it skipped at the hash marks and went off the bottom of Edmonton Oilers goalie Devan Dybnyk’s glove into the net.  Pucks that are on edge and bounce right in front of you are extremely difficult for goalies...
