Skinner surrendered five goals on 25 shots in Saturday's 6-4 loss to the Senators. The sixth goal was an empty-netter.

Skinner couldn't protect a 3-1 lead after two periods, as the Senators surged after shuffling their lines in the third. The 23-year-old netminder has had mixed results in 11 appearances this season, posting a 4-6-0 record with a 2.93 GAA and a .907 save percentage. He'll compete with Mikko Koskinen for starts while Mike Smith (thumb) works his way back from another injury. The Oilers' next game is a tough matchup Thursday versus the Panthers.
