Oilers' Mikko Koskinen: Makes career-high 49 saves
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Koskinen stopped 49 of 52 shots in Wednesday's 6-3 win over the Flyers.

Outside of Connor McDavid, who had five points, and the 50/50 winner, who took home more than $66,000, no one in the arena had a better night than Koskinen. The 31-year-old was every bit as good as the box score would indicate, improving to 3-0-0 with a career-best 49 saves. After an uneven 2018-19 season, his first in the NHL, Koskinen has posted a .927 save percentage through his first three starts of 2019-20 and has combined with Mike Smith to provide the Oilers with a very effective goaltending tandem early on. They've split the playing time so far and it remains to be seen if one of them can claim the No. 1 job outright.

Oilers' Mikko Koskinen: Facing off against Flyers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Koskinen will be between the pipes for Wednesday's home game against the Flyers, Jack Michaels of the Oilers Radio Network reports.

Koskinen has won both of his starts so far and was solid in the process with a .914 save percentage. This will be his first home game of the year, but it'll be the Flyers' third straight road contest. They haven't been able to spark their offense on the road trip, scoring just three goals over two games. That bodes well for Koskinen's chances of staying undefeated.

Oilers' Mikko Koskinen: Keeps team undefeated
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Koskinen stopped 28 of 31 shots through overtime and all three shootout attempts in Thursday's 4-3 win over New Jersey.

Koskinen gave up a goal in each period, but Edmonton erased a trio of one-goal deficits before the netminder stiffened up in overtime and the shootout. The Oilers have won their first four games of the season, with Koskinen and Mike Smith each playing two.

Oilers' Mikko Koskinen: Blue-paint bound Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Koskinen will patrol the road crease in Saturday's game versus the Rangers, Bruce LeVine of Dallas Stars Radio reports.

Koskinen will look to keep the Oilers undefeated. This will be his third straight start since Mike Smith was struggling and Koskinen has been solid so far with two straight wins and a .914 save percentage in the process. The Rangers will be well-rested since they haven't played in a week, and they scored 10 goals in their first two games of the season.

Oilers' Mikko Koskinen: Starting in New Jersey
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Koskinen will start between the pipes in Thursday's road game against the Devils, Mike Morreale of NHL.com reports.

Koskinen was rock solid during his season debut Tuesday against the Islanders, turning aside 25 of 27 shots en route to a 5-2 victory. The 31-year-old Finn will look to stay sharp in a road matchup with a struggling New Jersey team that's gone 0-2-1 to start the campaign.

Oilers' Mikko Koskinen: Cruises to win over Isles
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Koskinen stopped 25 shots in Tuesday's 5-2 win over the Islanders.

After allowing the first goal of the game midway through the first period, Koskinen settled down and watched James Neal dominate at the other end of the ice. The 31-year-old netminder sat behind Mike Smith for the first two games of the season, but it's not yet clear which of them -- if either -- will emerge as the Oilers' No. 1.

Oilers' Mikko Koskinen: Making season debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Koskinen will guard the cage in Tuesday's road game against the Islanders.

Koskinen was expected by many to enter the season as Edmonton's No. 1 netminder after signing a three-year, $13.5 million extension with the team in January, but veteran Mike Smith ended up getting the nod for the Oilers' first two games of the campaign. Koskinen will hope to make a case for a more even timeshare going forward while trying to pick up his first win of 2019-20 in a road matchup with an Islanders squad that's 1-1-0 on the season.

Oilers' Mikko Koskinen: Set for full exhibition game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Koskinen will start Saturday's road preseason game versus the Flames, Tom Gazzola of TSN.ca reports.

The Oilers plan on affording Koskinen the entire game. The 31-year-old backstop will have a final tuneup ahead of the regular season. He's expected to be the Oilers' starting goalie this year, but he may be tested by veteran Mike Smith if he falters.

Oilers' Mikko Koskinen: Set to start Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Koskinen is expected to start Saturday versus the Flames, Jim Matheson of the Edmonton Journal reports.

Saturday's game will be Koskinen's third start and fourth appearance of the preaseason. He most recently allowed a pair of goals in one period versus the Coyotes. Koskinen and Mike Smith are expected to share the goaltending duties this season.

Oilers' Mikko Koskinen: To start again Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Koskinen will start Friday's game against Calgary.

Koskinen also started Thursday night's preseason matchup against the Canucks, and he won't need to wait long to make his next appearance between the pipes. He continues to compete for the starting goalie job with Mike Smith (illness), who returned to the ice Thursday.

Oilers' Mikko Koskinen: Starting versus Canucks
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Koskinen will draw the start in Thursday's game against the Canucks, Reid Wilkins of 630 CHED reports.

This is Koskinen's first start of the preseason. Koskinen seems to have the inside lane for the top goalie job with the Oilers this season, especially as Mike Smith (illness) has missed virtually all of the preseason so far. The 31-year-old Finn posted a 2.93 GAA and a .906 save percentage with a 25-21-6 record last season.

Oilers' Mikko Koskinen: Wins 25th game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Koskinen stopped 30 of 31 shots in Saturday's 3-1 win over the Flames.

Koskinen excelled in the season finale, allowing the Oilers to come out victorious over their biggest rivals. He improved to 25-21-6, and finished the year with a 2.93 GAA and a .906 save percentage. Koskinen signed a three-year extension with the Oilers in January, and will likely enter next season as the favorite for the top netminding job.

Oilers' Mikko Koskinen: In net Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Koskinen will defend the net during Saturday's regular-season finale against the Flames.

Koskinen has hit a rough patch down the stretch, allowing four or more goals in four of his last six starts. He carries a three-game losing streak into Saturday's season finale but will look to close out the season strong against a Flames club that will feature the majority of its usual lineup after many sat Wednesday.

Oilers' Mikko Koskinen: Yields six goals in two periods
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Koskinen allowed six goals on 29 shots in a 6-2 loss to the Avalanche on Tuesday.

After the Oilers jumped out to a 2-0 lead in the first period, Koskinen allowed six goals on the final 21 shots he saw. It's been a rough go for Koskinen, who is 3-6-2 with an .872 save percentage in the last 11 games since March 13. That's absolutely crushed his numbers. Overall, he is 24-21-6 with a 2.97 GAA and .905 save percentage in 54 games this season.

Oilers' Mikko Koskinen: Starting in Colorado
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Koskinen will guard the goal in Tuesday's road game against the Avalanche, Jack Michaels of the Oilers Radio Network reports.

Koskinen has struggled recently, suffering three straight losses while posting a sub-par 3.02 GAA and .890 save percentage over that span. The Finnish backstop will look to get back on track and pick up his 25th win of the season in a road matchup with a Colorado club that's averaging 3.05 goals per game at home this campaign, 17th in the NHL.

Oilers' Mikko Koskinen: Winless in three straight
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Koskinen made 28 saves on 30 shots in Monday's 3-1 loss to the Golden Knights.

He did a decent job of keeping things close, but a lone goal from Connor McDavid was all the Oilers offense could muster in support of their goalie. Koskinen dropped to 24-20-6 on the year with a 2.90 GAA and a .907 save percentage. The loss officially eliminated the Oilers from playoff contention, which could mean more minutes for Anthony Stolarz, beginning with Tuesday's game in Denver.

Oilers' Mikko Koskinen: Starting in Sin City
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Koskinen will tend the road goal for Monday's game against Vegas, Jack Michaels of the Oilers Radio Network reports.

The start will be Koskinen's 23rd in 24 games, and is 10-8-4 in that span to go along with a 2.97 GAA and .906 save percentage. He will have to be at the top of his game, facing a Vegas squad that is 23-11-5 at home this campaign.

Oilers' Mikko Koskinen: Takes loss versus Ducks
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Koskinen allowed four goals on 21 shots during 35:13 of ice time before getting pulled in a 5-1 loss to the Ducks on Saturday.

Even against the league's worst offense, Koskinen couldn't find a groove. Since his blazing hot start to the season, which is now a distant memory, Koskinen has gone 13-16-5 with an .895 save percentage in the last 36 games. Obviously, that's brought him back down to earth across the board. Koskinen is still 24-19-6, but his GAA has skyrocketed to 2.92, and he also owns a .906 save percentage in 51 games.

Oilers' Mikko Koskinen: Draws start Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Koskinen will tend the home goal in Saturday's game against the Ducks.

Koskinen will draw his 10th consecutive start after losing in overtime while stopping 20 of 22 shots in his last start. The Finnish netminder will draw a great matchup, facing the league's worst offense in terms of goals per game (2.32).
