Koskinen will start Saturday vs. the Stars.

Koskinen stopped 31 of the 33 shots that he faced in the Oilers win in Anaheim last Sunday. Mike Smith started the first two games of the week but Koskinen will start vs. the Stars this afternoon. He has yet to lose in regulation on home-ice, going 4-0-1 with a 2.12 GAA, .931 SV% and one shutout in six appearances. The Stars are 5-5-1 on the road and 29th in goal-scoring, so Koskinen is a strong option on a busy Saturday.

Koskinen will start Friday vs. the Devils.

Koskinen allowed three goals on 24 shots in the Oilers loss to the Coyotes on Monday. The Oilers continue to rotate their goalies, so tonight is Koskinen's turn and he draws the Devils on the tail-end of a back-to-back. The 31-year-old is 3-0-1 with a 2.57 GAA and .917 SV% on home-ice and New Jersey is 2-4-0 while averaging just 1.83 goals per game on the road.

Koskinen will start Tuesday against the Islanders.

Despite Mike Smith playing outstanding in his first two games with the Oilers, they will turn to Koskinen tonight vs. the Islanders.
