Yeah I watched the game. So did everybody else that is disagreeing with you.

Dubs is very guilty on that first goal of being down for the count on his pads and overcommitted and not guarding the net as he should. If you note the reason two other players are trying to play goal is because Dubnyk isn't. Its inconceivable for a goalie that is down on his pads as much as he how little width of the cage he covers with his long legs. He has every physical give and a 10 cent brain. Not enough sense to position full butterfly and cover as much net as possible if he's going to be down.

Second goal same thing. Dubs is swimming and over committed on his pads (something that teams are now scouting and noting because does it way too much and telegraphs doing it. Its gotten to the point that if the puck is even deep in the Oilers end theres dubnyk down on his pads and nobodies even shot the puck. All you gotta do is pick a corner, go high, you always know where Dubs is. I'm telling you several of our players would be schooling Dubnyk. It would be brutal to see.

3rd goal Dubnyk loses his posts and angle. He gets beat shortside. Basically because he's giving up 2 feet shortside. He's totally lost on the play and if you look at it closely he has the entire wrong set being way too far too his left. Theres no way any goalie intends to give up that much room shortside/stickside. He simply had no idea where the goal post was and it was a brutal set, therefore he got beat easy by the shot.

He sucked in the shootout as well. Not sure what else there is..
