Dubnyk Down; Pitton Up; Opportunity Wasted

How many chances do you get to have two goalies named "Doobie" starting against one another?  Does Steve Tambellini want to stamp out joy?  Do the Oilers want to prove once and for all that they hate fun?  Devan Dubnyk must look terrible in practice.  The Oilers have sent him down to Springfield and called Pitton up to sit on the bench while Jeff Deslauriers plays his second game in two nights.  That's not to say that Dubnyk can't use the work or that he won't be welcomed with open arms in Springfield.  It's just... you would think in a back-to-back situation he would getting the start tonight to give our "number one" (Ha!) goalie a rest.  At this point, I'm hoping for a Bryan Pitton appearance tonight.
