Vote for the Snickers Play of the Week - March 7 - 13
Each week, reviews all the top goals, saves, hits and fights and narrows it down to the final three. That means it's up to you, the fans, to decide which is the top play for the week.

The Oilers were on the road last week with four games played in the Eastern timezone that unfortunately ended as a winless week. Despite the outcome, the goalies made some spectacular saves and their efforts are shown in this week's list.  Dubnyk and Khabibulin go head-to-head this week for your votes.

Last week, Taylor Hall's Gordie Howe hat trick beat out the competition with 45.7% of the votes.  Omark's Sneaky Shootout Winner came in second with 41.1%, while Cogliano's shorthanded goal came in third with 13.1%. Who will win this week? Watch the clips and vote to find out!

Khabibulin Shuts the Door

The Oilers found themselves in a scoreless stalemate late in the first period last Wednesday against a powerfully offensive Caps team. Without a great save from Khabibulin though, the score would have been different entering the second.

The Russian netminder put a stop to a great chance when Mike Knuble tried to slip an Alexander Ovechkin pass into the back of the net.


Dubnyk's Late Save

The score was 1-0 Oilers late in the third when Detroit pulled their goalie for the extra man.  The last minute flurry featured a great opportunity to tie it for Detroit, but Dubnyk was there to make the save.

Unfortunately, Detroit was able to tie the game and win it in overtime, but the save prior to that was amazing nonetheless.


Denial by Dubnyk

Late in the second period of Sunday's matinee game against the Penguins, the Oilers found themselves down 2-0 and killing a penalty.  Penguins forward Jordan Staal fed the puck to Matt Cooke, where he tried to backhand it past Dubnyk.  The young goaltender put a stop to that chance though, keeping the score as it was.
