Oilersnation Everyday: The win streak ends at eight

The Edmonton Oilers’ win streak ended last night, but it wasn’t due to a lack of effort.
Andrei Vasilevskiy proved once again why he is the best goaltender in the world. The Tampa Bay goaltender withstood the Oilers onslaught, making 50 saves in a 7-4 win for the Lightning. Steven Stamkos helped him with some run support, scoring four goals, with the other three coming from Nikita Kucherov, Tyler Motte, and Anthony Cirelli.
Unfortunately, the Oilers didn’t get the same goaltending as the Bolts. Stuart Skinner was playing well up until the third period. The Edmonton goaltender allowed three goals in the final frame, putting the game out of reach for his team. It’s disappointing but just a minor blimp in a successful run for Skinner and the team.
After watching last night, is it time general manager Ken Holland found a goaltender to help Skinner? Perhaps this was the final evidence the team needed to prove that Skinner couldn’t do the job alone. If that’s the case, then who should the Oilers be looking to bring in to support him? That will be today’s Sherwood Ford GIANT Question.
