Richard Bachman had a night’s notice he would be starting Sunday against the Los Angeles Kings.

Yet if the Edmonton Oilers knew the goaltender was going to play as well as he did, they probably would have put out the call a little sooner than that.

Bachman was outstanding in his Oilers debut, turning aside 47 shots and stealing a point as the Oilers fell 2-1 in a shootout.
