Skinner has been highly inconsistent this series; in two wins, he's stopped 55 of 57 shots, but in the two losses, he's been tagged with nine goals on just 56 shots.

Oilers' Stuart Skinner: Strong in Game 4 win
Skinner stopped 25 of 26 shots in Wednesday's 4-1 win over the Golden Knights in Game 4.
Skinner has alternated strong and poor starts in the second round. This was the second time he's managed to limit the Golden Knights to a single goal, but he's given up nine tallies over his other two appearances. The 24-year-old netminder is now 5-4 in the postseason despite a lackluster .895 save percentage.

Oilers' Stuart Skinner: Chased from Game 3
Skinner stopped 19 of 23 shots in a 5-1 loss to the Golden Knights in Game 3 on Monday.
Edmonton struck first, but Vegas rattled off five unanswered goals, with Skinner yielding four of them before Jack Campbell replaced him just over halfway into the second period. This poor outing came on the heels of Skinner's best playoff performance so far, a 30-save effort in a Game 2 win. The 24-year-old has given up at least four goals in three of his last four contests, so his hold on the starting job may be a bit more tenuous than it was at the start of the second round....

Oilers' Stuart Skinner: Strong in Game 2 win
Skinner stopped 30 of 31 shots in Saturday's 5-1 win over the Golden Knights in Game 2.
The Oilers set the tone with special-teams play in the first period, and Skinner was mostly able to coast to the win. He allowed a goal to Ivan Barbashev early in the third period, but that was the lone blemish. Skinner has won three of his last four games while allowing 13 tallies in that span. He should get the nod again for Game 3 in Edmonton on Monday.... See More ... See Less

Skinner will guard the road goal in Saturday's Game 2 versus the Golden Knights, Jesse Granger of The Athletic reports.
Skinner has a 3.68 GAA and an .883 save percentage through seven playoff appearances. He's given up nine goals over his last two outings, so it's possible he could lose the starting job if his struggles continue.... See More ... See Less

Skinner surrendered five goals on 33 shots in Wednesday's 6-4 loss to the Golden Knights in Game 1. The sixth goal was an empty-netter.
Skinner got four goals of support from Leon Draisaitl, but it wasn't enough to fend off a more balanced output from the Golden Knights. Skinner has allowed at least three goals in all but one of his seven playoff outings. The 24-year-old probably still has a little leeway early in the second round, but he'll need to be sharp if called upon to start Game 2 on Saturday.... See More ... See Less

Skinner gave up four goals on 44 shots in Saturday's 5-4 win over the Kings in Game 6.

Skinner gave up 19 goals on 173 shots for an .890 save percentage across six games, but he's firmly entrenched as the starting goalie.... See More ... See Less

Skinner stopped 25 of 28 shots in Tuesday's 6-3 win over the Kings in Game 5.
Skinner was pulled in Game 4 on Sunday, but he bounced back with a solid effort to give the Oilers a 3-2 series lead. The 24-year-old gave up a pair of goals in the first period, but the Oilers were in control by the time he allowed the third tally in the third.

He'll likely start again Saturday in Game 6 with a chance to clinch the series.... See More ... See Less

Skinner will patrol the home crease Tuesday in Game 5 against Los Angeles, Oilers play-by-by announcer Jack Michaels reports.
Skinner will get a chance to bounce back after getting pulled from Sunday's 5-4 overtime win over the Kings.

Skinner has a 1-2 record this postseason, having permitted 12 goals on 101 shots.... See More ... See Less
Oilers' Stuart Skinner: Chased from Game 4
Skinner allowed three goals on 11 shots before being pulled in Edmonton's 5-4 overtime victory over LA in Game 4 on Sunday.
All three of Skinner's goals came in the first period. Jack Campbell came out for the start of the second frame and was strong in net, allowing Edmonton to fight its way back into the contest. Skinner has struggled in the 2023 playoffs, posting a 3.38 GAA and an .881 save percentage over four outings, so perhaps Campbell will get the start in Game 5 on Tuesday.... See More ... See Less
Oilers' Stuart Skinner: Starting in Los Angeles

Skinner is coming off a 28-save effort in Friday's 3-2 overtime loss to the Kings. He has a 1-2 record this postseason, allowing nine goals on 90 shots. Los Angeles has averaged 3.00 goals per game in the first round of the playoffs.... See More ... See Less
Oilers' Stuart Skinner: Falls in overtime
Skinner kicked out 28 of 31 shots in a 3-2 overtime loss to the Kings in Game 3 on Friday.
Two of the three goals Skinner allowed were scored while the Kings were on the power play, including a marker to Trevor Moore in overtime. The 24-year-old goaltender has now surrendered nine goals on 90 shots in three playoff outings this year. That's far from ideal, but given that Jack Campbell had an ugly 3.41 GAA and .888 save percentage in 36 contests during the regular season, it wouldn't be surprising to see Skinner, who had a 2.75 GAA and a .913 save percentage in 50 appearances in 2022-23, start again Sunday....
