Oilers goaltender details how he deals with hecklers and doubters

In a recent interview, Stuart Skinner gave up a bit of information that should really excite oilers fans. Skinner seems to have made a full rebound from the start of the season, where it seemed that Skinner had less than 0 confidence. In the interview, he shows this confidence through saying that the boos and comments from fans and opponents only fuel him to be better, which is a very promising sentiment shared by many elite level goaltenders.


This confidence is not only shown in his interviews, but also in his play. Skinner has brought his save percentage up dramatically since the start of the season, and has only 2 losses in his last 12 starts. This confidence is exactly what both he and the oilers needed, as they have been on a very hot streak since their coaching change, and have completely re-wrote the narrative from their abysmal start to the season. If skinner can keep this recent play up, that will be great news for the oilers as they try to make a push for a high seed in the playoffs.
