BLOG: Dubnyk wearing new pads tonight

Dubnyk's new goalie pads, which he will wear tonight for the first time.

Devan Dubnyk will be wearing a new set of goalie pads tonight. He had been practicing with this set for about a month and finally feels comfortable enough to use them in a game.

"I think I'm a lot worse for breaking in new pads (than most other goalies)," laughed Dubnyk. "I've had those pads for a long time now. I don't even know if you can call them new anymore."

Ilya Bryzgalov was quick to adopt his new Oilers-themed pads.

"Bryz was into his within a week. I used to be able to wear a new set of pads right out of the box but for whatever reason, the last few years I've gotten real bad for changing out of them. I've had these for probably a month and I feel like they're broken in enough and feel really similar to my other ones. As soon as it gets to the point where I don't notice the difference, I'll wear them."
