Nikolai Khabibulin started the year on fire. He went 7-0-2, posting a 0.964 SV% and two shutouts over his first nine games.
Over the same span, Devan Dubnyk played in six games, winning two and losing four to go along with his 0.909 SV%.
With those sort of starts, Khabibulin should have had an insurmountable lead on Dubnyk. Last night, however, Dubnyk’s save percentage on the season eclipsed Khabibulin’s, 0.912 to 0.911.

After a convincing BOA victory on Friday night and then celebrating St. Paddy's all day yesterday, I'm sure many of you feel like like "ass" this morning. The last 48 hours have been great in Oilersnation. The Oilers crushed the Flames on Friday and last night the Sharks, Avs and Kings all won, so the Flames find themselves in 11th place this morning.
The only negative was watching Taylor Hall get concussed after losing an edge and having Cory Sarich's hip slam into his head. Hall wasn't on the ice this morning and since Tom Renney said he was concussed, he'll be out at least a week, if not longer.

This is Donny Murdoch. He was one of very many wingers who auditioned for the job as "Gretzky to..." before Slats found Kurri. I think we're entering the period of time when the Edmonton Oilers will attempt to find strong matches for Eberle, RNH and Hall. The three kids have chemistry, but as time rolls along the coaching staff will need to find two useful scoring lines to send over the boards every night. That's the challenge for Tom Renney.

All things considered, Ryan Nugent-Hopkins has exceeded each and every expectation I had going into his first NHL season through the 51 games he's played with the Edmonton Oilers.
