Although the Feb 10th against CBJ was a stellar game in the midst of a weak patch. It is the one game you can truly say where Dubnyk stole a win.
The Oilers outshot the stars on the 28th and outplayed them.
The Oilers dominated Colorado. 4-0. Dubnyk played well enough to get the shutout, but did not have to stand on his head.
So five weeks ago is where the strong patch ended.
In all of these games Dubnyk played great whether he needed or got any goal support from his team. These games are games where all the Oilers had to do was show up play half decent and Dubnyk would have taken care of the rest.
I'm not sure what your idea of a "strong patch" is. No one expects him to carry this team on his back every game, all he has to do is give them a chance to win and he's doing his job. I feel he's been doing that and am more than happy with what he's done this season.
