As I said before, it looked like he was tailing off a few games before the road trip, then was more or less awful for basically the entire trip up until the Colorado game where it looks like he might have started another hot streak.
He really was only not great for maybe 2 games before the road trip. Then during the trip he had 2 or 3 good games. Then during the road trip him and the team couldn't do anything right except for 2 or 3 good games. Even then he wasn't losing games on the road trip, the team as a whole didn't deserve to win.
Since the Chicago game where he left due to injury he has been stellar again.
Every goalie goes through little funks like that. Look at Pekka Rinne lately, he's one of the best goalies in the league and he has a worse SV% in his last 10 games than Dubnyk had in his last 10 games leading up to his shutout against Chicago.
