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. Koskinen was 25-21-6 with a 2.93 GAA and .906 SV% last year, including 1-1-0 with a 3.48 GAA and .848 SV% in two games against the Islanders. If he doesn’t play well, this timeshare will shift even more in Smith’s favour.

Smith will start Saturday vs. the Kings.

Smith stopped 31 of 33 shots in the Oilers 3-2 win over Vancouver on opening night. It was an outstanding debut for Smith, who was in command all night. Even during a down year in Calgary, Smith only surrendered three goals in two games against the Kings, so don’t hesitate to get him in your lineups tonight.
