Koskinen will protect the road goal in Thursday's game versus the Coyotes, Mark Spector of Sportsnet.ca reports.

With Mike Smith (leg) on injured reserve, Koskinen will temporarily take over as the Oilers' No. 1 goalie. The 33-year-old Finn made 20 saves on 21 shots to earn the win in relief of Smith on Tuesday. Koskinen will have a favorable matchup Thursday versus a Coyotes team lacking in scoring threats.
