Goaltender Stuart Skinner vs. Goaltender Carter Hart


Stuart Skinner has experienced a slow start for Edmonton this season, posting a goals-against average of 5.33 and save percentage of 0.75 that may cause alarm among Oilers fans. But it is important to remember that goalies often experience fluctuation in performance between games – and two is still considered an insufficient sample size for evaluation of potential performance issues like these. Against Philadelphia’s fiery offense, however, this could be his chance to show why his initial numbers don’t accurately portray his true ability.


Carter Hart of the Flyers appears to have started strong this season with his save percentage of 0.921 and goals-against average of 3.53 through three games, making a strong statement about their defensive foundation and freeing up Philadelphia skaters to play more freely. Recent performances suggest he’s in form and, should this trend continue, Edmonton’s top attackers such as McDavid and Draisaitl may find it challenging to penetrate his defenses. In this goaltending matchup Skinner seeks redemption while Hart hopes to sustain early season momentum by maintaining early season momentum of their early-season performance.
