With Dubnyk out, and Hendricks in, the team has played way better. He's definitely not the guy to save us, but you can see the way the Oilers played in those last 10games before the Olympics, their play was much improved.

Its all baby steps, and they're steps in the right direction
The Oilers have been outshot 361 to 265 in their last 10 games... basically being outshot by almost 10 shots per game.

They are playing like crap and the goalies are standing on their heads holding them in there.

Other than the goaltending obviously improving... this team is no better and arguably WORSE than they've been all season.
