Mikko Koskinen

Koskinen makes 24 saves for third shutout of season

Connor McDavid scored the only goal, and Mikko Koskinen made 24 saves for the Edmonton Oilers in a 1-0 win against the Calgary Flames at Rogers Place on Sunday.

The Oilers (16-12-2) are 7-2-1 under coach Ken Hitchcock and have won five straight games at home. Tonight, was a prime example as to exactly why 
Hitchcock was the perfect choice to coach this team.  The Flames had been on a five-game win streak heading to action.  however, the Oilers cooled them off with an impressive all-around team game, that dare I say, had a playoff feel.      

Koskinen is 6-0 at home. He has three shutouts. He’s Save-percentage is .972 With this victory the Oilers are now just one point out of a playoff spot with momentum on thier side.
