The first time Edmonton Oilers goaltender Devan Dubnyk saw the San Jose Sharks, they blasted him for six first-period goals. Thursday night he forced the unbeaten Sharks into overtime and then the shootout with the scored tied 2-2. San Jose prevailed, but not before gaining a healthy appreciation for Dubnyk’s potential.Other organizations are noticing him too. “Dubnyk’s always been big but seems quieter in the net, letting the play come to him now,” said one NHL pro scout told the Edmonton Journal.Aside from his one disastrous game, Dubnyk has stopped 188 of 199 shots.
