According to Jason Brough of NBC Sports on Wednesday, Nashville Predators head coach Barry Trotz was highly critical of Nashville's new goaltender Devan Dubnyk with 94.9 Game 2 Sports Radio in Nashville.

Trotz blamed the Calgary-raised Dubnyk for giving up three goals in a 5-4 Nashville loss to the Colorado Avalanche on Saturday.

Trotz also stated that he thought Dubnyk got some "bad habits" while playing for the Edmonton Oilers this season and needed to get things corrected with goaltending coach Mitch Korn.

Edmonton Oilers head coach Dallas Eakins then commented if he was unsure if Trotz was critical of Predators' general manager David Poile or the the Edmonton Oilers' franchise.

Dubnyk was traded from Edmonton to Nashville last week for forward Matt Hendricks. It has been a tough year for Dubnyk who has poor statistics of 11-18-2, a 3.42 goals against average and .892 save percentage. Dubnyk, who was brought in to get some starts in Nashville while Pekka Rinne was out with a hip infection, could be in net for the Predators when they are in Calgary on Friday or Edmonton Sunday.
