Video: Mikko Koskinen's Turnover Leads To Goal

In Monday night's game against the New York Rangers, Edmonton Oilers goaltender Mikko Koskinen mishandled the puck behind the net. This led Ryan Strome to steal the puck and set up Alexis Lafreniere in front. From here, the 2020 first-overall pick scored one of the easiest goals of his career.

It was another hard night for the struggling Koskinen, as he allowed four goals on just 28 shots. After starting the year on fire, his numbers have gotten significantly worse. At this juncture, he has a 12-7-1 record, but also a .900 SV% and 3.19 GAA. 

The Oilers are continuing to struggle immensely, as they now have lost four straight contests and are 2-6-2 over their last 10 games. With Mike Smith's injury trouble and Koskinen's inconsistent play, one has to wonder if Edmonton will finally aim to acquire an upgrade in net. They should act quickly, as they are now 18-13-2 and have dropped to fourth place in the Pacific Division. 

Nevertheless, this was a bad turnover from Koskinen. Here's to hoping the 33-year-old can start turning things around from here.
