Shoot a ton, screen even more

Devan Dubnyk hasn’t exactly been a rock for the Oilers in net this season. Edmonton was hoping that he’d emerge from his “goalie of the future” shell and steal some wins for them in 2013-14, but thus far he’s just been bad. He’s given up 46 goals this season, which is good for second in the NHL.

His .881 save percentage is laughable for a starter and ranks 39th. Dubnyk’s GAA is the 41st best (worst?) and stands at 3.69. For a high-powered Sharks offense, the math on this one should be simple.

Everyone should be shooting at every chance that they get. Players should be crashing the crease and making life uncomfortable for Dubnyk. The defense in front of him can’t do much, so if the goalie gets rattled then things could get ugly for the Oilers.
