Nikolai Khabibulin's Costly Turnover
That picture looks like it was designed for a create-a-caption contest.
Goaltender Nikolai Khabibulin made his debut in Edmonton on Saturday night, and it couldn't have gone any worse for the veteran netminder. Just seconds after Oilers forward Patrick O'Sullivan missed the net on a wide open shot at the opposite end of the ice, Khabibulin came out of his crease to play a loose puck, only to turn it over to Calgary's David Moss who directed it into the open net, giving the Flames a 4-3 lead with just 47 seconds to play in The Battle Of Alberta.

Benjamin Massey at The Copper & Blue sums it up perfectly for Oilers fans. On the bright side, the Oilers looked absolutely fantastic in their throwback uniforms. So, at least they had that going for them.
