Oilers' Scrivens Allows Three In Win

News: Ben Scrivens stopped 41 of the 44 shots he faced in Wednesday's 4-3 win over the Avalanche.
Analysis: Ben Scrivens faced a ton of shots once again, but played well and was able to pick up the victory. He's now 15-23-10 on the season with a .896 save percentage and a 3.00 GAA.

Ben Scrivens

Oilers' Scrivens To Man Net Wednesday

News: Ben Scrivens will be in the crease for Wednesday's game against the Avalanche, Jack Michaels of the Oilers Radio Network reports.
Analysis: Even by his normally low standards, Ben Scrivens is having an awful month of March. Over nine outings, he's come away with only two wins while posting save percentages below .900 on all but two occasions. The Avalanche aren't the offensive juggernaut they were a year ago, but Scrivens simply isn't playing well enough to risk using him in most formats.

Another Loss For Oilers' Scrivens

News: Ben Scrivens stopped just 20 of 24 shots in a 4-1 loss to the visiting Jets on Monday.
Analysis: Another game, another loss for Ben Scrivens -- his 23rd of the year. He's emerged victorious just twice in his last 10 starts and although this point has been beaten into the ground, we'll say it again: he's definitely one goalie to avoid given the team in front of him, his 2.99 GAA and .895 save percentage this year.

Oilers' Scrivens Gets Monday's Start

News: Ben Scrivens is slated to start Monday's game against the Jets, Jack Michaels of the Oilers Radio Network reports.
Analysis: Ben Scrivens, who will square off against Ondrej Pavelec on Monday, has allowed seven goals over his last two turns in net for the Oilers. He'll be making his seventh consecutive start for the team on Monday.

Oilers' Scrivens Makes 27 Saves In Win

News: Ben Scrivens stopped 27 of 31 shots Saturday as the Oilers eeked out a victory over the Flyers.
Analysis: A decent night for Ben Scrivens, who advances to 14-22-10 on the season with a .896 save percentage and 2.97 GAA. He's suffered just one regulation loss in his last six games and is starting almost every game, so if you're looking to pick up some wins in a deeper league, Scrivens could be your guy. The Oilers are playing better of late and are seeing crazy production from Jordan Eberle and Ryan Nugent-Hopkins.

Ben Scrivens

Oilers' Scrivens To Man Net Saturday

News: Ben Scrivens will be in the cage Saturday against the Flyers, Jack Michaels of the Oilers Radio Network reports.
Analysis: It's the sixth consecutive start for Ben Scrivens, who continues to benefit from the Oilers' lack of other options in goal. Scrivens has parlayed his standing as the team's No. 1 goalie into a 13-22-10 record, 2.96 GAA, and .897 save percentage over 50 appearances, numbers that make him unplayable in most mid-sized or shallow leagues and a low-end goalie in deeper formats. Even against a reeling Flyers squad, it's hard to feel good about Scrivens' prospects.

Ben Scrivens

Oilers' Scrivens Stops 17 In Loss

News: Ben Scrivens allowed three goals on 20 shots in Wednesday's 4-3 shootout loss to the Blue Jackets.
Analysis: Ben Scrivens has struggled all year, so Wednesday night wasn't much of a departure. He now ranks in the "top" five in the league in losses, overtime losses and goals allowed, and has just a .897 save percentage through 50 games.

Ben Scrivens

Oilers' Scrivens To Make Fifth Straight Turn

News: Ben Scrivens will be between the pipes for Wednesday's game against the Blue Jackets.
Analysis: It's the fifth straight starting nod for Ben Scrivens, mostly as a byproduct of the Oilers' lack of appealing alternatives in net. Scrivens was able to score a rare victory over the Maple Leafs on Monday with a 28-save effort, and while the Blue Jackets also possess a sub-.500 record for the season, they've been a much more competitive squad. Even though he'll be on his own home ice, Scrivens still doesn't look like an attractive lineup option for Wednesday's slate.

Ben Scrivens

Oilers' Scrivens Beats Leafs

News: Ben Scrivens made 28 of 29 saves in Monday's 4-1 win over the visiting Maple Leafs.
Analysis: After a four-game road stretch that didn't amount to a single victory, Ben Scrivens got back in the win column in a battle of two of the league's worst teams. His record is now at 13-22-9 with a 2.96 GAA and .897 save percentage on the year, terrible numbers all around that make him an easy goaltender to avoid between now and next season.

Ben Scrivens

Oilers' Scrivens Gets Monday's Start

News: Ben Scrivens is slated to start Monday's game against the Maple Leafs, Jack Michaels of the Oilers Radio Network reports.
Analysis: Ben Scrivens, who has allowed eight goals on 44 shots over his last 85:42 worth of ice time, will look to sharpen things up on Monday against a Toronto squad that has dropped two straight games by a combined count of 10-4.

Ben Scrivens

Oilers' Scrivens Surrenders Four Goals In Loss

News: Ben Scrivens surrendered four goals on 31 shots in Friday's shootout loss to Columbus.
Analysis: Another loss for Ben Scrivens, who has just one win in his last eight games. The 28-year-old is now 12-22-9 on the season with an .896 save percentage and 3.00 GAA. While he may start lots of games, Scrivens doesn't win much and his rate stats are lacking. If there's a better option out there, go for it.

Oilers' Scrivens Starts Friday

News: Ben Scrivens will start in net Friday against the Blue Jackets, Shawn Mitchell of The Columbus Dispatch reports.
Analysis: Ben Scrivens struggled mightily in his last outing before receiving the hook in the second period, allowing four goals on 13 shots. He's back in net Friday, however, looking to stay the whole 60 minutes.

Oilers' Scrivens Doesn't Last Long In Loss

News: Ben Scrivens barely made it into the second period before getting yanked Thursday against the Penguins. He gave up four goals on 13 shots, but backup Richard Bachman was the one who ended up with the loss.
Analysis: The Oilers rallied from down 4-0 with Ben Scrivens out of the game, only for Bachman to end up surrendering two late goals to lose. Scrivens' tough campaign continues, as he's given up 13 goals in his last four games and has won just once in his last eight starts.

Ben Scrivens

Oilers' Scrivens Receives Nod Thursday

News: Ben Scrivens will be between the pipes for Thursday's game against the Penguins, Jack Michaels of the Oilers Radio Network reports.
Analysis: The Oilers will kick off a back-to-back set in Pittsburgh on Thursday with their No. 1 goalie in the net, but don't be surprised if he's called upon again Friday in Columbus. Though Ben Scrivens' numbers for the season (12-22-8, 2.92 GAA, .898 save percentage) hardly suggest that he should enjoy job security, backup Richard Bachman is simply not an NHL-caliber goalie, as evidenced by his start last weekend, when he allowed six goals to a below-average Hurricanes squad. As a result, Scrivens will likely be used heavily down the stretch, though he won't provide much value to fantasy players beyond inflated save totals.

Ben Scrivens

Oilers' Scrivens Surrenders Three In Loss

News: Ben Scrivens allowed three goals on 24 shots before two empty-netters brought the final tally to 5-2 in Monday's loss to the Red Wings.
Analysis: Ben Scrivens has now lost four in a row and six of his last seven, but he hasn't been at fault in most of them. While he has been improving his own personal play of late, his rate stats are still poor (2.92 GAA and .898 save percentage), and he won't pick up many wins so it's best to avoid him for fantasy purposes.

Ben Scrivens

Oilers' Scrivens In Net Monday

News: Ben Scrivens will start between the pipes Monday against the Red Wings, Oilers' play-by-play announcer Jack Michaels reports.
Analysis: Ben Scrivens got the day off for the first game of the Oilers' back-to-back set, making him the likely candidate to start Monday. He will look to turn things around following three straight losses in net, but will face a tough task against the Red Wings.

Ben Scrivens

Oilers' Scrivens Solid In Shootout Loss

News: Ben Scrivens was great against Chicago on Friday -- making 38 of 39 saves -- but it wasn't enough as the Oilers fell 2-1 in the shootout.
Analysis: On most nights, allowing a single goal on 39 shots would earn a victory, but it was Corey Crawford in the opposing crease who came out ahead, outdoing Ben Scrivens with 46 (!) saves of his own. With just one win in his last six starts and 12 in 45 appearances this season, it's essentially a no-brainer at this point to avoid poor Scrivens, whose ratios (.899 save percentage, 2.91 GAA) haven't done much to make up for having the league's third-worst offense (141 goals) in front of him.

Ben Scrivens, G, EDM Oilers' Scrivens To Play Friday

Ben Scrivens

Oilers' Scrivens To Play Friday

News: Ben Scrivens will be in the crease for Friday's game against the Blackhawks, Jack Michaels of the Oilers Radio Network reports.
Analysis: Ben Scrivens has been on the losing end of four of his last five starts, but that's not any kind of newsworthy development during a season in which he's gone 12-21-7 with a 2.97 GAA. The goalie's putrid numbers are unlikely to improve with the Oilers in tank mode for the rest of the season, making him an ill-advised play just about any time he takes the net. Scrivens is certainly worth avoiding against a powerful Blackhawks squad.

Ben Scrivens

Kings Light Up Oilers' Scrivens

News: Ben Scrivens was beaten five times on 29 shots Tuesday in a 5-2 loss to the Kings.
Analysis: That's the fourth defeat in Ben Scrivens' last five starts, and the third time in the last eight that he's given up four or more goals. Although Scrivens is capable of turning in some positive outings, the Edmonton goaltending situation remains eminently avoidable for fantasy purposes.

Oilers To Start Scrivens On Tuesday

News: Ben Scrivens will be in the crease for Tuesday's game against the Kings, Jason Gregor of OilersNation.com reports.
Analysis: Ben Scrivens will be sure to rise to the occasion for a game against his former team, but it's doubtful that his team will do much to help him out. An already porous Oilers squad became a little more suspect Monday by trading away Jeff Petry, leaving the team quite depleted in front of Scrivens. Of course, his offense hasn't been doing much of late either for Scrivens, who has given up two or fewer goals in three consecutive games but only has one win to show for it.

Ben Scrivens

Oilers' Scrivens Allows Two Goals In Loss

News: Ben Scrivens gave up two goals on 27 shots in Saturday's loss to the Blues.
Analysis: While has Ben Scrivens has suffered three losses in his past four outings, he's allowed two goals or less in three straight games. He doesn't win much with Edmonton, but his rate stats are rising and he plays almost every game.

Ben Scrivens

Oilers' Scrivens Gets The Saturday Nod

News: Ben Scrivens will be in the cage for Saturday's game against the Blues, Jack Michaels of the Oilers Radio Network reports.
Analysis: Ben Scrivens is firmly entrenched as the Oilers' No. 1 goalie while Viktor Fasth (knee) remains out indefinitely, but he's still very clearly a low-end goalie option, despite wins in four his last seven starts. Playing behind an improving, but still substandard Oilers defense, Scrivens' ratios are susceptible to take big hits on a given night, particularly against top-flight offenses like the Blues'.

Scrivens, Oilers Surprise Wild

News: Ben Scrivens delivered 33 saves on 34 shots to take home a 2-1 victory over Minnesota on Tuesday.
Analysis: The pundits certainly didn't see this one coming, with the miserable Oilers winning only their 18th game of the season against a Minnesota team that came in red hot. For what it's worth, Ben Scrivens has won three of his last five starts, delivering four save marks over .900 in that span.

Ben Scrivens

Oilers' Scrivens Getting Tuesday Start

News: Ben Scrivens will be in the crease for Tuesday's game against the Wild.
Analysis: Ben Scrivens will make his fourth consecutive start, based less on him warranting further duties than the Oilers' lack of any appealing alternatives. The netminder kept the Oilers competitive in two of those three outings, but his overall ratios on the season (2.99 GAA, .895 save percentage) continue to make it difficult for fantasy owners to extract much value. Scrivens won't be much more than a low-end option in daily or season-long formats the rest of the way.

Oilers' Scrivens Starting Sunday

News: Ben Scrivens will start Saturday's game against the Ducks, Oilers play-by-play announcer Jack Michael reports.
Analysis: Ben Scrivens will make a third consecutive start, following Friday's 4-0 loss to Minnesota in the first game of a back-to-back. With Viktor Fasth (knee) out indefinitely, Scrivens figures to be busy in the coming weeks.
