  • Oilers' Stuart Skinner: Steady in Game 1 win

    Skinner stopped 31 of 33 shots in Thursday's 3-2 double-overtime win over the Stars in Game 1 of the Western Conference Finals.

    Skinner didn't face more than 24 shots in any of his five appearances in the second round versus the Canucks, but the Stars predictably were more active. The 25-year-old was up to the challenge, earning his third straight win. He's allowed just five goals in that span. Skinner's back in the No. 1 job for the Oilers, so he should be expected to start Game 2 on Saturday.

  • Oilers' Stuart Skinner: Between pipes for Game 1

    Skinner will tend the twine on the road in Game 1 of the Western Conference Finals against the Stars on Thursday, Jason Gregor of Sports 1440 Edmonton reports.

    Skinner has faced less than 20 shots in each of his last four appearances, posting a 3-1 record to go with a 2.66 GAA and .848 save percentage over that stretch. Despite being benched for Games 4 and 5 of the Oilers' second-round series versus Vancouver, the 25-year-old backstop was able to reclaim the starting role from Calvin Pickard for the final two games of the best-of-seven series. Skinner will likely remain the preferred choice in net for Edmonton during the Western Conference Finals.

  • Oilers' Stuart Skinner: Nabs Game 7 win

    Skinner stopped 15 of 17 shots in Monday's 3-2 win over the Canucks in Game 7.

    Skinner earned back-to-back wins after a two-game benching, but he's still not showing that much to inspire confidence. In those wins, he stopped 29 of 32 shots, a product of the Canucks' lackluster offense more than Skinner's own quality of play. Nonetheless, he's likely done enough to regain the starting job heading into the Western Conference Finals, which begin in Dallas on Thursday.

  • Oilers' Stuart Skinner: Gets starting nod for Game 7

    Skinner will be between the road pipes for Monday's Game 7 clash with the Canucks, Daniel Nugent-Bowman of The Athletic reports.

    Skinner returned from a two-game benching to stop 14 of 15 shots in a Game 6 win. In each of his last three appearances, the netminder has faced less than 20 shots, though that's not surprising since the Canucks have averaged a league-worst 21.1 shots per game in the postseason. If he can secure the win Monday, Skinner should be the presumptive starter moving forward.

  • Oilers' Stuart Skinner: Lightly tested in win

    Skinner stopped 14 of 15 shots in Saturday's 5-1 win over the Canucks in Game 6.

    Skinner was benched for the previous two games, but he was back between the pipes with the Oilers' season on the line. The Canucks came out flat, leaving Skinner with little work to do as he snagged the win and forced Game 7. The 25-year-old is 6-3 in the playoffs, but he's given up three or more goals in six of his appearances. Securing the win Saturday makes it likely he'll start in the win-or-go-home contest Monday in Vancouver.

  • Oilers' Stuart Skinner: Back in net

    Skinner will guard the home crease in Game 6 against Vancouver on Saturday, Gene Principe of Sportsnet reports.

    Skinner ceded the crease to Calvin Pickard in Edmonton's last two contests after struggling to a .793 save percentage in the first three games of the series. With the Oilers now down 3-2, they'll turn back to Skinner as they look to force a Game 7. The 25-year-old netminder is 5-3-0 overall in the postseason with an .877 save percentage and 3.22 GAA.

  • Oilers' Stuart Skinner: Pulled from Sunday's loss

    Skinner allowed four goals on 15 shots in Sunday's 4-3 loss to the Canucks in Game 3.

    Skinner played the first two periods and saw a little more ice time late in the third after some gamesmanship from head coach Kris Knoblauch. Skinner's play remains a serious concern -- the Canucks have fired 58 shots at him over three contests, but he's let in 12 goals while losing two of those games. The Oilers were able to cover the 25-year-old in the first round, but they've had less success in that regard against the Canucks. Per Daniel Nugent-Bowman of The Athletic, Knoblauch wouldn't commit to sticking with Skinner for Game 4 on Tuesday. Calvin Pickard made three saves in Sunday's contest, but veteran Jack Campbell could also be an option should the Oilers get desperate in the next week.

  • Oilers' Stuart Skinner: Guarding cage Sunday

    Skinner will get the starting nod at home against Vancouver on Sunday, Thomas Drance of The Athletic reports.

    Skinner helped tie the series at 1-1 by stopping 16 shots in Friday's Game 2 victory. He's struggled so far against the Canucks, yielding eight goals on 43 shots in two contests. Skinner has won five of his seven postseason starts despite registering a lackluster .888 save percentage in the process.

  • Oilers' Stuart Skinner: Wins Game 2 in overtime

    Skinner stopped 16 of 19 shots in Friday's 4-3 overtime win over the Canucks in Game 2.

    Skinner had another poor outing, but the Oilers' dynamic duo of Connor McDavid and Leon Draisaitl made up for it with four points each. Over the last three games, Skinner has allowed 11 goals on 64 shots, but he's managed to win two of those contests. The Oilers managed to break the Canucks' home-ice advantage -- the series is tied at 1-1 heading back to Edmonton for Game 3 on Sunday and Game 4 on Tuesday.

  • Oilers' Stuart Skinner: Tending twine Friday

    Skinner will get the starting nod for Game 2 in Vancouver on Friday, Oilers play-by-by announcer Jack Michaels reports.

    Skinner has been shaky this postseason and was rocked for five goals on just 24 shots in a loss to the Canucks in Game 1 on Wednesday. Through six playoff games, he's registered an .893 save percentage and a 3.01 GAA. On the bright side, Skinner hasn't taken consecutive losses since Feb. 21 and 24.

  • Oilers' Stuart Skinner: Stumbles late in Game 1

    Skinner allowed five goals on 24 shots in Wednesday's 5-4 loss to the Canucks in Game 1.

    Skinner held Vancouver to one goal through most of the first two periods before Elias Lindholm cut the lead to 4-2 late in the second. Skinner then allowed three more tallies in the third in the eventual one-goal defeat. The 25-year-old Skinner has been shaky at times this postseason -- he's posted an .893 save percentage through his first six playoff games. Nonetheless, Skinner will likely remain between the pipes for the Oilers in Game 2 on Friday.

  • Oilers' Stuart Skinner: Set to start Wednesday

    Skinner is expected to guard the road goal in Game 1 against Vancouver on Wednesday, per Thomas Drance of The Athletic.

    Skinner earned a respectable 2.59 GAA and .910 save percentage in five first-round contests versus LA. However, he might have a difficult time against the Canucks after posting a record of 0-3-0 with a 4.60 GAA and an .830 save percentage across four regular-season appearances versus Vancouver. It wouldn't be surprising to see Skinner challenged regularly by the Canucks, but the Oilers have averaged 4.40 goals per game in the postseason, so they're capable of putting themselves in a position to win even when their goaltending isn't the best.

  • Oilers' Stuart Skinner: Earns series-clinching win

    Skinner stopped 18 of 21 shots in Wednesday's 4-3 Game 4 victory over Los Angeles.

    It wasn't the busiest game for Skinner, but the 25-year-old netminder did just enough for the one-goal win as the Oilers took the series 4-1. After allowing nine goals on 63 shots in his first two games of the series, Skinner looked better in his last three contests, posting a .951 save percentage. Edmonton will now get a few days off before they face the winner of the Vancouver-Nashville series in the second round.

  • Oilers' Stuart Skinner: Set to face Kings

    Skinner is expected to start at home against LA in Game 5 on Wednesday, per Jason Gregor of Sports 1440 Edmonton.

    Skinner earned a 33-save shutout over the Kings in Game 4 on Sunday, and he's stopped 60 of 61 shots (.984 save percentage) over his last two starts. That gives him a 3-1 record, 2.48 GAA and .919 save percentage in four playoff contests this year. The 25-year-old was streaky in the regular season, finishing with a 36-16-5 record, 2.62 GAA and .905 save percentage in 59 appearances, but Skinner seems to be on a roll with a chance to eliminate the Kings up for grabs.

  • Oilers' Stuart Skinner: Steals Game 4 win

    Skinner recorded a 33-save shutout in Sunday's 1-0 win over the Kings in Game 4.

    The Oilers looked like the worse team for the first time in the series, but Skinner stepped up to deliver his first playoff shutout and his third win in four first-round games. The 25-year-old was able to make an Evan Bouchard power-play goal hold for the win Sunday. Skinner has given up 11 goals over four games versus the Kings, and he'll likely be in goal again for Wednesday's Game 5 in Edmonton.

  • Oilers' Stuart Skinner: Back in net Sunday

    Skinner will guard the road cage Sunday in Game 4 against the Kings, Oilers play-by-by announcer Jack Michaels reports.

    Skinner is coming off a 27-save performance in a 6-1 win over the Kings in Game 3 as the Oilers took a 2-1 series lead. The 25-year-old netminder has an .890 save percentage through the first three games in the postseason.

  • Oilers' Stuart Skinner: Steady in Game 3 win

    Skinner stopped 27 of 28 shots in Friday's 6-1 win over the Kings in Game 3.

    Skinner turned in the first good goaltending performance on either side in this series, though he also had plenty of support from his offense. He's allowed 10 goals on 91 shots through three games, but the Oilers have scored 17 times to establish a 2-1 series lead. Skinner continues to hold the starting job, and he'll presumably get the chance to try to strengthen Edmonton's position in Sunday's Game 4.

  • Oilers' Stuart Skinner: Tending twine Friday

    Skinner will get the starting nod for Game 3 in Los Angeles on Friday, Zach Dooley of the Kings' official site reports.

    Skinner has struggled so far this postseason, coughing up nine goals on 63 shots in two games. Including his final start of the regular season, he's gone 1-2-0 with an unsightly .829 save percentage over his last three outings. Skinner went 13-10-2 with an .894 save percentage and a 2.80 GAA in 27 road appearances during the regular season, so it'll be interesting to see how he'll perform in a hostile environment Friday.

  • Oilers' Stuart Skinner: Yields five goals in loss

    Skinner allowed five goals on 26 shots in Wednesday's 5-4 overtime loss to the Kings in Game 2.

    Skinner is now 1-1 in the postseason, having allowed nine goals on 63 shots. He's given up at least four goals in three straight games, something he didn't do in the seven outings prior to his recent struggles. The Oilers will likely continue to roll with Skinner in goal, though it could be up to the offense to cover up his mistakes in a first-round series that has not been kind to the goalies so far. The next game is Friday in Los Angeles.

  • Oilers' Stuart Skinner: Slated to face LA

    Skinner is set to start at home against the Kings for Game 2 on Wednesday, per Jason Gregor of Sports 1440 Edmonton.

    Skinner allowed four goals on 37 shots versus LA in Game 1 on Monday, but he got plenty of goal support en route to a 7-4 victory. He's typically done better against the Kings, posting a 4-1-0 record, 2.39 GAA and a .926 save percentage over five contests this year, including four regular-season outings. The Kings also left something to be desired offensively during the regular season, finishing the campaign in a tie for 16th offensively with 3.10 goals per contest.
