      Oilers' Anders Nilsson: Lacks goal support in loss

      Nilsson allowed three goals on 26 shots in Wednesday's loss to the Hurricanes. The Oilers have only scored once between Nilsson's past two starts but remain in the middle of the pack overall with an average of 2.62 goals per game. Nilsson's 2.85 GAA and .906 save percentage this season isn't too shabby when you consider that the Oilers have only won seven games and have a minus-12 goal differential.

      Oilers' Anders Nilsson: Tending twine as Wednesday's starter

      Nilsson will be in the crease Wednesday night for a road start against the Hurricanes. Nilsson has only seen the Hurricanes once in his career, and that was back in 2013-14. This season, he has made 10 starts and along with that is a 2.83 GAA and .908 save percentage. Those are below average numbers, but it's worth noting that Nilsson has been strong as of late, allowing just two goals on 50 shots between his most recent games against the Devils and Capitals respectively.

      Oilers' Anders Nilsson: Sharp in loss

      Nilsson stopped 29 of 30 shots in Monday's loss to the Capitals. Nilsson played well enough to get the win in this one, but Braden Holtby was perfect on the other end and the Capitals beat him for the only goal of the game with less than seven minutes to play. He appears to have wrestled away the starting job from Cam Talbot, and Monday's performance against a tough offensive club should keep him atop the depth chart for the time being.

      Oilers' Anders Nilsson: Starting Monday

      Nilsson will be in between the pipes for Monday's tilt with Washington. It seems Nilsson has wrangled the job of Oilers' starting netminder from the struggling Cam Talbot, as on Monday he will be making his seventh start in nine games. This is not to say that Nilsson has been great this season, because he hasn't, he has just been better than Talbot. In past seasons, playing an Edmonton goalie in any fantasy format was almost never a prudent decision, and nothing has changed in that regard this season. Nilsson will face a tough test in Washington on Monday, as Alex Ovechkin and co. will pepper him with shot after shot.

      Oilers' Anders Nilsson: Makes 19 saves in win

      Nilsson stopped 19 of 20 shots in Friday's win over the Devils. A great bounce-back performance from Nilsson, who had been beaten for four goals in each of his last two outings. The 25-year-old is now 4-4-1 on the season with a .901 save percentage. The Oilers have been hard-pressed for wins this season, but if they can build off this five-goal outburst, more victories could pile up for Nilsson.

      Oilers' Anders Nilsson: On tap to start Friday

      Nilsson will get the starting nod Friday night at home against the Devils, Tom Gulitti of The Record reports. Nilsson has gone against the grain this season by having a better GAA (2.72) on the road than in front of the home crowd (3.98) through eight starts. While Friday's game is in Edmonton, Nilsson can trust that he's had great success against the Devils, having posted a .952 save percentage and 1.34 GAA in five career contests.

      Oilers' Anders Nilsson: Will start Wednesday versus the Blackhawks

      Nilsson is slotted to play Wednesday versus the Blackhawks, reports the Oilers web site. Nilsson doesn't support the best of numbers so far this season, 3-4-0, 3.21 GAA, .902 save percentage, but the Oilers are still giving him a chance to win the starting job. The bottom line is that neither Nilsson nor Cam Talbot has done enough to make the Oilers feel any better about their situation in net than they have over the past couple of seasons.

      Oilers' Anders Nilsson: Penciled in as Thursday's starter

      Nilsson will start in goal Thursday night against the Coyotes. Nilsson owns a 3-3-0 record along with a 3.06 GAA that ranks 33rd in the NHL. He's been splitting time with Cam Talbot this season, and wins have been hard to come by as the team is working with a minus-7 goal differential and prized prospect Connor McDavid is not around to help the cause offensively as he is on injured reserve with a shoulder injury. Nilsson opposes an average Coyotes team Thursday, albeit one that has won their past two contests.

      Oilers' Anders Nilsson: Starting Wednesday against Anaheim

      Nilsson will be between the pipes in Tuesday's game against the Ducks, Oilers play-by-play announcer Jack Michaels reports. Nilsson has been solid of late, posting a 1-1-0 record with a 2.03 GAA and .927 save percentage in his last two appearances. The 25-year-old netminder draws into a highly favorable matchup Wednesday against a Ducks team that has been the worst offensive squad in the NHL this season, averaging a putrid 1.60 goals scored per game.

      Nilsson will start in the crease Friday, facing pucks from the Penguins in front of the home crowd, Jason Gregor of the Edmonton Journal reports. On Tuesday, Nilsson set aside 20 shots en route to his second win of the season, giving him positive momentum for Friday's matchup against a Pens team that has earned wins in five straight contests.
