Dubnyk also wears the goat horns in this one. Absolutely deflating goals to give up at the worst possible time, he does this way too often and his good numbers masks that deficiency.

Hall had one of his poorer games in a while. He just didn't seem into until the OT for some reason, i expected more from him in a big game.
Does Hemsky even care anymore? WTF was that in the shootout? Brutal.

Just an ugly loss, i couldn't care less about the "loser" point. It's inexcusable that they can't ever hang onto a 3rd period lead. **** you Krueger.
Agreed. What's especially disheartening is that the Sharks looked like a shell of their early season selves in this game but they still found a way to get that crucial extra point.

Even bad teams don't squander 3rd period leads at the rate the Oilers are. What Ralph and his team are doing defies conventional wisdom and trends.
