Stuart Skinner‘s night is done after allowing four goals on 17 shots as the Edmonton Oilers face elimination in Game 6 of their second-round Stanley Cup playoffs series against the Vegas Golden Knights.

Oilers head coach Jay Woodcroft is putting his faith in Jack Campbell for the third period.

Campbell, who lost the starting job to Skinner during the regular season, has a 5-1-0 career record against the Golden Knights, with a goals-against average of 1.65 and a save percentage of .956 in those games.

He’s stopped 45 of 47 shots against him during these playoffs across three relief appearances.

This was Skinner’s third time being pulled in this series.
