There was no defensive coverage on those two goals, even if he should've had them
Sometimes you need a goalie to make a big save. Dubnyk didn't make those tonight. Does a goalie have to steal every game for you? Absolutely not. Dubnyk wasn't needed to steal one tonight. All he had to do was steal a single save (preferably 2) and this game would have been the Oilers.

Dubnyk's weak goaltending tonight seems to be a microcosm of the whole team though to be honest. Just don't know how to raise up to the moment.

Anyone remember in 05-06 at the end of the season when in the dying moments of a tied game against the Ducks, Hemsky scores a spectacular goal to lift the Oilers into the playoffs? This team right now doesn't have that capability. Not in net, and not anywhere else in the lineup it seems. The kids aren't ready for it and no one else on the team is good enough for it.
