Brandon Dubinsky returned to action on Friday March 27.

Mar 28 - 2:40 AM

Andrew Miller scored his first career NHL goal on Friday night when he put the puck past Kari Lehtonen on a third period penalty shot.

Pretty exciting stuff for the 26 year old forward who was in his fifth career NHL game. He now has three points during his time with the Oilers.
Mar 28 - 1:08 AM

Derek Roy added his 12th goal of the season during Edmonton's 4-0 win over Dallas on Friday night.

Roy capitalized on Alex Goligoski's failure to handle Jyrki Jokipakka's pass, allowing Roy to swoop in and put one home. Roy now has goals in consecutive games, and four points over his last five games. He has 11 goals and 21 points in 39 games since joining the Oilers.
Mar 28 - 1:06 AM

Jordan Eberle scored Friday night's opening tally just 33 seconds into the game en route to a 4-0 win over Dallas.

Eberle scored on an awkward play where it seemed as though Dallas turned the puck over at center ice, and then failed to pick up Eberle as he was open in front of Kari Lehtonen between three defenders. Either way Eberle got himself open for the chip-in goal served up by Ryan Nugent-Hopkins, his 22 of the season. He continues to lead the team with 60 points this season.
Mar 28 - 1:00 AM

Benoit Pouliot scored a goal and added an assist in Friday's 4-0 win over Dallas.

Pouliot's goal was exemplary of how hard the Oilers worked on Friday night. Justin Schultz started it off with a dump-in, where Taylor Hall deftly lifted Patrik Nemeth's stick behind the net, and found Pouliot for the tap-in across the crease. Pouliot now has points in consecutive games, and has scored in four of his past five games for a combined five assists and six points during that span. He now has 17 goals and 30 points in 51 games this season.
Mar 28 - 12:52 AM

Richard Bachman made all 29 saves and recorded his second career shutout in Friday night's 4-0 victory over his former club, the Dallas Stars.

It was also his first career victory over the Stars. Bachman was simply sensational all night along, and came through on all three of Dallas' power plays as well. Backman's record improves to 1-2-0 in five games this season with just 12 goals against on 111 combined shots.
Mar 28 - 12:45 AM

Kari Lehtonen had a tough night, making just 24 saves in Friday night's 4-0 loss to Edmonton.

Lehtonen didn't have a good night, and he was even beaten on a penalty shot that didn't feature a deke. But his defense was out-worked in the defensive zone all night long as well, and it showed on the scoreboard. Lehtonen's record drops to 33-15-10 with a .907 save percentage and a 2.84 GAA.
Mar 28 - 12:34 AM

Jonas Hiller stopped the only shot he faced in Friday's 4-2 loss to Minnesota.

Starter Karri Ramo got the hook with just under seven minutes remaining in the game and Hiller played in his place.
Mar 27 - 11:25 PM

Sergei Bobrovsky stopped 31 of 33 shots in Friday's 5-2 win over Chicago.

Bobrovsky allowed two goals to Brandon Saad and Jonathan Toews in the first period but he was perfect the rest of the way. The 26-year-old has now won four consecutive starts for Columbus. Bobrovsky has an overall record of 24-17-2 on the season and he has a 2.76 goals-against-average to go along with a .916 save percentage in 2014-15. As a whole, Bobrovsky's season has been disappointing. His numbers are average and he has dealt with a couple of injuries that have forced him to miss time. Bobrovsky should be an intriguing bounce-back candidate next year.
Mar 27 - 11:23 PM

Scott Darling stopped all 13 shots he faced in Friday's 5-2 loss to Columbus.

Darling entered the game late in the first period after Corey Crawford gave up four goals in just over 15 minutes. Darling didn't allow a goal the rest of the way, but Columbus did add an empty netter with him on the bench in favour of the extra attacker.
Mar 27 - 11:18 PM

Corey Crawford was pulled in Friday's 5-2 loss to the Columbus Blue Jackets.

Crawford allowed four goals on 13 shots in less than one period of action. He was pulled after being beaten by Jackets' forward Cam Atkinson on a shorthanded breakaway. Crawford just didn't have it tonight and he should be able to move on and bounce back from this performance. The 30-year-old has lost back-to-back starts and his overall record falls to 30-17-5 on the season. Scott Darling entered the game in relief of Crawford.
Mar 27 - 11:15 PM

Jonathan Toews scored a goal in Chicago's 5-2 win over Columbus on Friday night.

Six of the seven total goals in this contest were scored in the first period. Jackets' forward Cam Atkinson added an empty netter in the third, but that was it for goals scored after the first frame. Toews had just one assist in his last four contests, so it was nice to see him chip in offensively even if it came in a loss. The 26-year-old has 24 goals and 61 points in 74 games this season. Brandon Saad scored the other goal for Chicago.
Mar 27 - 11:12 PM

Cam Atkinson scored a hat trick in Columbus' 5-2 win over the Chicago Blackhawks on Friday night.

Atkinson's first two goals were scored in the first period and he added an empty netter to complete the trifecta. Atkinson is now just two goals away from tying his career-high of 21 which he set last season. The 25-year-old signed a three-year contract extension with the Jackets in March so he should be part of the team for the foreseeable future. Atkinson has 19 goals and 35 points in 70 games this season. Ryan Johanssen and Kevin Connauton also scored for Columbus.
Mar 27 - 11:08 PM

Devan Dubnyk stopped 23 of 25 shots in Friday's 4-2 win over the Calgary Flames.

Dubnyk has been incredible since being acquired from Arizona and this latest stretch has been no different. The 28-year-old has now won six of his last seven games. Dubnyk has now surrendered two goals or less in three consecutive games. His record improves to 34-11-3 on the season and he has just six regulation losses as a member of the Wild.
Mar 27 - 10:55 PM

Karri Ramo allowed four goals on 35 shots in Friday's 4-2 loss to the Minnesota Wild.

Calgary actually scored the game's first goal, but the Wild responded by scoring four goals on their own. This was Ramo's first regulation loss in his last five games (2-1-2). The 28-year-old's record now falls to 15-9-3 on the season. This was a huge loss for the Flames as they now trail Minnesota by six points. Calgary has been a pleasant surprise this season but unless they turn things around quickly, they will miss the post-season.
