Vote for the Snickers Play of the Week - March 14 - 20
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 spent last week playing in two, close home games against the Phoenix Coyotes and Colorado Avalanche.  Although they were unable to come up with a win, plenty of great plays still occurred.  Performances by Magnus Paajarvi, Nikolai Khabibulin, and Jordan Eberle made this week's list of top plays.

Last week, Dubnyk's late save beat out the competition with 45.0% of the votes.  Dubnyk also came in second with his denial against the Penguins with 41.5%, while Khabibulin's save came in third with 13.5% of the votes. Who will win this week? Watch the clips and vote to find out!

Topshelf Paajarvi

In last Thursday's game against the Phoenix Coyotes, the Oilers found themselves on a powerplay in the third period. After receiving a cross-ice pass from Linus Omark, fellow Swede Magnus Paajarvi wired a shot topshelf against Coyotes netminder Ilya Bryzgalov to bring the Oilers within one.


Khabibulin's Glove Save

With the Oilers down 1-0 early in the second period against Colorado last week, Nikolai Khabibulin came up big when he made an excellent glove save against Colorado Avalanche player Mark Olver.


Eb and Flow

In last Saturday's game against the Avalanche, the Oilers found themselves with a long, four minute powerplay in the second period. With the extra man, Eberle walked off the boards with the puck, deked past Ryan O'Byrne, thenslipped a backhanded shot topshelf past Brian Elliott, to tie the game.
