Khabibulin first goalie off the ice at #Oilers morning skate, looks like he gets the nod against the #NHLDucks tonight
Khabibulin has allowed four goals in each of his last three starts dating back to March 28th. The Oilers have been eliminated from the playoffs as of yesterday so it would be tough to warrant him as a spot start. Regardless, the Ducks are a tough team to beat, look elsewhere.
Nik Khabibulin is first goalie off just to verify that he is starting tonight for Edm vs. CBJ.
Khabibulin played very well in his last start. He stopped all 43 shots he faced in a 3-0 shutout win over the Blues. He has a decent matchup vs. the Blue Jackets. However he better be ready to post another shutout if Bobrovsky starts for CBJ.
Khabibulin allowed three goals on 25 assists in a 3-0 loss to St. Louis. He will be back in the net tonight vs. the Blues again. He will look for a better outcome this time around, but the Blues have won four out of their last six so it won't be easy.
#Oilers have also placed goaltender Nikolai Khabibulin on Injured Reserve
Khabibulin's injury is undisclosed at this point. This is a tough break for Khabibulin who has played well so far this season (2.12 GAA and .935 SV%). Yann Denis has been recalled to backup Devan Dubnyk, who will likely see almost all the starts going forward.
Khabibulin the first #Oilers goalie off the ice this morning, indicating he'll make the start against the #Blackhawks tonight
This team was supposed to be Devan Dubnyk's this season but the veteran Khabibulin is making a strong case for himself to be the Oilers #1 goalie. This will be his third start in Edmonton's last four games. Khabibulin has two wins in his last 3 outings with a 1.82 GAA and .944 SV%. He has a terribly tough matchup tonight vs. the Blackhawks tonight.
Nikolai Khabibulin gets the start in net tonight for the #Oilers after two solid periods against the #Avs on Saturday.
This will be Khabibulin's second start of the season. He lost his first start but played very well vs. Detroit. He also has recorded a win when he came into last week's game vs. Colorado after Devan Dubnyk gave up three first period goals. Khabibulin has a tough matchup vs. Los Angeles.
