Oilers Look to Rebound Without Roloson Tonight in Carolina
Everything was going the Edmonton Oilers' way midway through Game 1 of the Stanley Cup finals. One blown lead and one agonizing giveaway turned the momentum of the series, and one injured goalie changed the shape of it.
Knowing Dwayne Roloson isn't coming back, the Oilers must turn to an unheralded goaltender - either the one whose gaffe cost the team Game 1 or the one who hasn't played in three months - as they try to prevent the Carolina Hurricanes from leaving home with a 2-0 series lead.
Edmonton will have Ty Conklin or Jussi Markkanen in net for the rest of this series because Roloson is out with a knee injury, suffered with 5:54 to play in Carolina's 5-4 victory in Game 1 on Monday.
