How does a goalie coach help your team? I don't know, so I tried to find the answer.

Ron Tugnutt was drafted by the Quebec Nordiques in the 4th round of the 1986 NHL entry draft. He played in the NHL from 1988 to 2004 for Quebec, Edmonton, Anaheim, Montreal, Ottawa, Pittsburgh, Columbus and Dallas.

He also spent time in the AHL. He has had multiple goalie coaches in his career, he has been a goalie consultant for Hockey Canada and he's been a goalie coach in the OHL.

Tugnutt shed some light on what exactly a goalie coach does.

A win would be nice, but for the love of Strudwick's bad sweaters can the Oilers, at the very least, be competitive tonight? 

I don't expect the Oilers to suddenly transform into a solid defensive team or a competent offence, but I'd hope they can put forth a solid effort.

It must be disheartening for them to look at the standings and realize that on November 25th they are on the brink of not even being in the playoff race, again, but now is not the time for a pity party.

Just be competitive.
