Desperate Oilers Stick With Scrivens Thursday

News: Ben Scrivens will man the net again Thursday against the Sharks.
Analysis: Ben Scrivens has turned in back-to-back credible outings for the Oilers against the Rangers and Coyotes, but he's been cruelly handed the loss on both occasions. If it's not Edmonton's horrid defense that lets him down, Scrivens has too often seen the Oilers' offense fail to provide him with much support. Simply put, the team is a disaster right now and could struggle mightily over the remainder of the season, making its goalie situation one to avoid whenever possible.

Scrivens, Oilers Lose Again

News: Ben Scrivens took yet another loss Thursday, giving up four goals on 30 shots to the Sharks.
Analysis: That's four straight defeats for Ben Scrivens and his 13th in his last 14 starts. Though he'd been better lately, it seems to always just be a matter of time until he takes a step back with a four- or five-goal outing.

Oilers' Scrivens Stops 42, Loses In OT

News: Ben Scrivens stopped 42 of 44 shots Tuesday in Arizona, but the 44th shot was the game-winner with one second left in overtime off the stick of Oliver Ekman-Larsson.
Analysis: Ben Scrivens turned in a heroic goaltending performance, and in fact has allowed just three goals on 72 shots over his last three appearances, but wins remain precious rare in Edmonton even with the team's change in coaching, so Scrivens isn't a reliable fantasy option.

Oilers To Start Scrivens Against Coyotes

News: Ben Scrivens will be in the crease Tuesday against the Coyotes, Jack Michaels of the Oilers Radio Network reports.
Analysis: Ben Scrivens will make the first start of the post-Dallas Eakins era, as the Oilers' bench boss was fired Monday. Though Edmonton has lost 15 of its last 16 games, it wouldn't be surprising if Scrivens led the Oilers back into the win column against the sagging Coyotes, who have lost five in a row to assume the second-worst record in the Western Conference. Scrivens has played respectably in three of his last four outings, but goal support from his mates has been at a minimum, saddling him with a 1-3 record during that stretch.

Oilers' Scrivens Does His Best In Loss

News: Ben Scrivens gave up only one goal on 21 shots Sunday, but got no offensive support in a 2-0 loss to the Rangers.
Analysis: The Oilers have just been a disaster this season, picking up only one win in their last 16 outings. Still, Sunday was a good bounce-back effort from Ben Scrivens, who gave up five goals in his last start Tuesday against the Sharks. With an ugly 5-11-3 record, 3.10 GAA, and .890 save percentage on the season, Scrivens can't be counted on in any leagues right now. But if by any chance the Oilers turn their season around, Scrivens could become a solid fantasy option, as he sees the bulk of starts in the Edmonton crease.

Ben Scrivens

Oilers Start Scrivens

News: Ben Scrivens will start in net against the Rangers on Sunday, play-by-play announcer Jack Michaels reports.
Analysis: Ben Scrivens allowed five goals in his last start Tuesday against the Sharks, but will receive the start Sunday after coming in to relieve Fasth on Friday and saving all seven shots he faced. Scrivens carries a 3.21 GAA and .887 save percentage into a tough matchup against the Rangers.

Oilers' Scrivens Garners Tuesday Start

News: Ben Scrivens will be in the crease Tuesday versus the Sharks.
Analysis: After recording the win over the Sharks on Sunday to snuff out the Oilers' 11-game losing streak, Ben Scrivens will draw back into the net in the rematch. It will be tough to count on him to repeat Sunday's performance, during which he only narrowly escaped with the win despite stopping 20 of 21 shots. He might have the upper hand on Viktor Fasth for regular netminding duties, but the Edmonton goalie situation is one to avoid if possible.

Oilers' Scrivens Rocked For Five Goals

News: Ben Scrivens was unable to duplicate Sunday's fine performance against the Sharks in Tuesday's rematch, as he allowed five goals on 24 shots in a losing effort.
Analysis: Two days after earning his first win since Oct. 27, Ben Scrivens delivered another of the miserable performances that have defined his season so far. It's awfully hard to trust him for fantasy purposes even when he manages to "earn" starts away from Viktor Fasth.

Oilers' Scrivens Shuts Down Sharks

News: Ben Scrivens stopped all but one of the 21 shots he faced in Sunday's win over the Sharks.
Analysis: A great outing from Ben Scrivens, who picked up his first win in nine starts. Wow, had it really been that long? Although he is the starting goalie in Edmonton, Scrivens has an awful 8.90 save percentage and 3.22 GAA on the season, manning the crease for an Oilers' team that sits at the bottom of the Western Conference. If there is a better option right now, take it, as Scrivens won't be valuable until the Oilers get themselves back on track.

Oilers' Scrivens Will Start Sunday

News: Ben Scrivens will start against the Sharks on Sunday, play-by-play announcer Jack Michaels reports.
Analysis: Ben Scrivens will be starting in his second-straight game Sunday. Over 18 games this season, he's allowing 3.35 goals per contest on a .888 save percentage.

Scrivens, Oilers Fall In OT

News: Ben Scrivens stopped 23 shots, but let in the game-winning goal in overtime to take another loss Wednesday versus the Jets.
Analysis: It marked the 10th loss in a row for Ben Scrivens, with both of his last two defeats coming in overtime. The goalie was at his best in the second period when he denied all 11 shots he faced, but his inability to put together a good outing from start to finish -- along with the failure of his mates to bail him out -- has made him toxic for fantasy purposes. Stay away from him until he starts to notice a little more good fortune.

Oilers' Scrivens Starting Wednesday

News: Ben Scrivens will start between the pipes against the Jets on Wednesday, play-by-play announcer Jack Michaels reports.
Analysis: Ben Scrivens allowed four goals on 34 shots and took the loss against the Blues on Friday. He is riding a nine-game winless streak into the matchup Tuesday.

Losing Streak Continues For Oilers' Scrivens

News: Ben Scrivens allowed four goals on 34 shots as the Oilers fell 4-3 in overtime to the Blues on Friday.
Analysis: Things have not gone well for Ben Scrivens following his four-game winning streak at the end of October. Since then, he has posted a nine-game winless streak and fallen into a timeshare for the starting duties with backup Viktor Fasth. In case you haven't figured it out by now, you should not be relying on him as your everyday fantasy starting netminder.

Oilers Start Scrivens Friday

News: Ben Scrivens will start in net Friday against the Blues, John Shannon of Sportsnet reports.
Analysis: Ben Scrivens was pulled in his last start last Saturday after allowing five goals on 13 shots. He now carries a 4-9-1 record, an .887 save percentage and a 3.35 GAA with him into Friday's matchup with the Blues.

Oilers' Scrivens Pulled In Blowout Loss

News: Ben Scrivens was pulled Saturday against the Blackhawks after giving up five goals on 13 shots.
Analysis: Because the Oilers only mustered one goal on the night, Ben Scrivens was credited with the loss -- his seventh straight. Scrivens is now 4-9-1 on the season with a disastrous .887 save percentage and 3.35 GAA. Unless the Oilers start to turn things around, it's best just to stay away from Scrivens for now.

Ben Scrivens

Scrivens Will Indeed Start Saturday

News: The roster sheet distributed before the game was incorrect, and it will in fact be Ben Scrivens starting in goal Saturday against the Blackhawks.
Analysis: Ben Scrivens was announced as the starter in the morning, but the roster sheet distributed a few minutes before the start of the game listed Viktor Fasth as the starter. However, that information turned out to be incorrect, so we're back where we were originally: Scrivens between the pipes looking to end his seven-game slide.

Oilers Change Mind, Won't Start Scrivens

News: Contrary to what the team announced earlier in the day, Viktor Fasth - not Ben Scrivens - will start Saturday against the Blackhawks, the Chicago Sun-Times' Mark Lazerus reports.
Analysis: Ben Scrivens has lost seven straight games so the Oilers will give Fasth another opportunity, relegating Scrivens to the bench. It was goalie madness in Edmonton, as both the Oilers and the Blackhawks made surprise goalie switches just a few minutes before the start of the game.

Ben Scrivens, G, EDM Oilers To Start Scrivens On Saturday

Oilers To Start Scrivens On Saturday

News: Ben Scrivens will be in the crease Saturday against the Blackhawks.
Analysis: Ben Scrivens still appears to be coach Dallas Eakins' preferred option in goal, but that's probably only because Viktor Fasth (3.38 GAA, .891 save percentage) hasn't done much to warrant more usage. Even so, Scrivens carries a seven-game losing streak into Saturday's contest, and while he hasn't been poor in all of the outings during that stretch, it's still tough to put a positive spin on his performance. He'll at least have the advantage Saturday of matching up against Antti Raanta, as the Blackhawks save No. 1 goalie Corey Crawford for their game Sunday.

Oilers' Scrivens Drops Seventh Straight

News: Ben Scrivens gave up five goals on 31 shots in Wednesday's 5-4 loss to the visiting Canucks.
Analysis: Oh dear -- Ben Scrivens has now lost seven starts in a row after rattling off four straight wins at the end of October. His 3.09 GAA and .895 save percentage have steadily worsened further from his career marks of 2.76 and .913 during the losing streak, so he's probably one backstopper to avoid in all but the deepest of leagues at this point.

Ben Scrivens

Oilers Start Scrivens Wednesday

News: Ben Scrivens will start in net Wednesday against the Canucks, Chris Wescott of the Oilers' official site reports.
Analysis: Ben Scrivens allowed just two goals on 28 shots Sunday against the Coyotes, but was stuck with his fifth straight loss due to a lack of offensive support. It was one of his better performances this season, now currently sitting with a 4-7-1 record, a .899 save percentage and a 2.94 GAA. He has some of the worst statlines in the league among goalies at this point, and isn't really worth a look in most fantasy leagues unless he can start turning things around.

Oilers' Scrivens Gives Up Two Goals In Loss

News: Ben Scrivens registered his fifth straight loss Sunday, giving up two goals on 28 shots against the Coyotes.
Analysis: Tough break for Ben Scrivens, who played well enough to potentially earn a win. While Scrivens hasn't been great this season, his 4-7-1 record is more indicative of the team's brutal defensive play than his own individual performance. It's hard to count on him right now, though, as his .899 save percentage and 2.94 GAA rank him among the worst starting goalies this season. He really isn't worth a look right now, as he hasn't won a game since late-October. He will post more wins eventually, but with the team in front of him, don't get your hopes up.

Oilers' Scrivens To Start Sunday

News: Ben Scrivens will make his second straight start on Sunday against the Coyotes, OilersTV.com's Tom Gazzola reports.
Analysis: Ben Scrivens gave up four goals on 30 shots in Thursday's overtime loss to the Senators. The 28-year-old goalie isn't getting much help as the Oilers are ranked 28th in the league in goals against, giving up 3.4 per game. He has compiled a 4-6-1 record this season while giving up 3.01 goals per game in 13 appearances.

Oilers' Scrivens Takes OT Loss

News: Ben Scrivens allowed four goals on 30 shots in Thursday's overtime loss to the Senators.
Analysis: The Edmonton offense managed a third-period comeback -- during which Ben Scrivens shut the door -- to salvage a point, but Mike Hoffman's overtime goal sunk the 28-year-old goalie. He's lost each of his last four starts, giving up 15 goals in those games. It'd be no surprise to see the Oilers try going back to Viktor Fasth on Sunday against the Coyes.

Oilers' Scrivens To Start Thursday

News: Ben Scrivens will be between the pipes Thursday against the Senators.
Analysis: Viktor Fasth garnered the previous three starts for the Oilers, but he performed poorly in his last turn Tuesday against the Predators before being pulled, resulting in Ben Scrivens coming on in relief. Scrivens was a perfect 18-for-18 on save chances over the final 40 minutes of the game, which may have been enough for him to earn the nod Thursday. Even so, it seems coach Dallas Eakins is inclined to simply roll with the hot goalie at this juncture, making it imperative for Scrivens to keep delivering quality outings if he hopes to see a steady diet of starts.

Ben Scrivens

Oilers' Scrivens Perfect In Relief

News: Ben Scrivens relieved Viktor Fasth after one period Tuesday against the Predators, stopping all 18 shots he faced to help out a comeback attempt that finished just short.
Analysis: Fasth allowed three first-period goals, but Ben Scrivens came in and locked things down, letting the Oilers claw their way back into the game before ending up with a 3-2 loss. After two substandard outings, maybe Scrivens just needed to take a seat on the bench to gain some perspective.
