Each week during this past season, edmontonoilers.com reviewed all the top goals and saves and put the vote to you the fans for the top play for the week. Those plays are back as the top 32 plays face off in head-to-head competition until a winner is ultimately determined. We will regularly put two plays up against one another and it's up to you to decide which one will advance on to the next round.


VOTING IS NOW CLOSED: Omark (83%) def. Dubnyk (17%)

Omark's First Career NHL Goal

Linus Omark chipped the puck in on goaltender Steve Mason, creating an intentional rebound. He then dashed through the zone, in the process beating four Blue Jackets defenders, where he met up with the puck. Omark raised the stick of the final defender, kicking the puck through his legs and up to his own stick where the chance was cashed.

Dubnyk's Quick Pad Save

After taking a pass in the slot, ex-Oiler Jarret Stoll collected the puck for a brief moment before firing a half-slapshot on goal. Devan Dubnyk, while deep in his net, was able to track the shot nicely. The rookie goaltender threw out his right pad with cat-like reflexes, turning the shot aside. Although the Oilers would ultimately fall in a shootout, this particular save provided the Oilers with an important single point.
