3)Rebounds, (multiple in sequence)aforementioned cluelessness with anything coming off the endboards.
4)Of course players taking more shots, I suspect less misses as well because when Dubnyk gives a guy thats only scored one goal all year two open feet on shortside stickside it doesn't have to be a real good shot. Other goalies prevent routine shooters from scoring many goals. Thereby resulting in the Oilers missing or outright passing up shots due to expected degree of difficulty beating quality goalies. Conversely teams don't pass up many shots against Dubnyk, why would they?
Yes, I know. It is Dubnyk's fault when a goal goes in and it is also Dubnyk's fault that the Oilers get lots of shots against them. He should be playing better defense and he is not good enough at keeping the puck in the offensive zone.
