Nikolai Khabibulin fell back to Earth a little bit tonight. He wasn’t the proximate cause for all four goals, but he was a contributing factor for a couple. Like when he shot the puck off the boards to no one in particular (okay, the linesman was standing there). Puck ended up on Cam Atkinson‘s stick in the high slot, and Khabibulin had no chance. Coach Krueger pulled Khabibulin after allowing the fourth goal and stuck Dubnyk in.

Cam Atkinson / Matt Calvert / Artem Anisimov - I could look at them individually, but the truth is that these were our best players tonight by a country mile. Nobody else even came close.

4. My fourth beer goes to the Edmonton skill. They kept coming with the speed, our defense couldn't cope with it, and it turned into a pretty typical trip to the old barn known as Rexall Place.
Only sportsnet could give Mike Brown the 3rd star and ignore a 4 point night.— Derek Blasutti (@dawgbone98) March 29, 2013
