Scrivens, Oilers Win Battle Of Basement

News: Ben Scrivens allowed two goals on 20 shots to come away with a 3-2 win over the Sabres on Thursday.
Analysis: Ben Scrivens snapped a personal three-game losing skid in which he'd allowed 11 goals. Of course, Buffalo's the only team worse than the Oilers, as the Sabres have now dropped 13 straight. So this is one of those hollow victories -- but hey, a win's a win.

Oilers To Go With Scrivens On Thursday

News: Ben Scrivens will be in the net for Thursday's game against the Sabres.
Analysis: Ben Scrivens has given way to Viktor Fasth over the last couple of outings, but he'll have a prime opportunity Thursday to reassert himself as interim coach Todd Nelson's top option in goal. The Sabres are the only team in the league averaging fewer than two goals per game this season, and have dropped 12 straight games in regulation, making the awful Oilers look relatively competent by comparison. Scrivens should be a playable option for those mining for a cheap win.

Oilers' Scrivens Stops Just 16 In Loss

News: Ben Scrivens gave up three goals on only 19 shots in Thursday's loss to the Lightning.
Analysis: The Edmonton defense did a surprisingly good job stifling the Tampa attack, but Ben Scrivens -- leading 2-1 at the second intermission -- allowed a pair of third-period goals to Ondrej Palat to flip the script. He's dropped three straight, allowing 11 goals in that span, so Scrivens remains among the worst fantasy netminders.

Oilers Stick With Scrivens

News: Ben Scrivens is slated to start Thursday's game against the Lightning, Jack Michaels of the Oilers Radio Network reports.
Analysis: After winning two straight games earlier this month, Ben Scrivens has dropped his last two decisions, allowing four goals in each of those turns, which has lifted his GAA to 3.05.

Scrivens Allows Four As Oilers Fall Again

News: Ben Scrivens was tagged for four goals on 29 shots in Tuesday's loss to St. Louis.
Analysis: That marks consecutive 4-2 losses for Ben Scrivens, who made just 23 saves in Sunday's loss to Florida. It's just hard to trust any goalie on any given night for the godawful Oilers, and Scrivens hasn't made things any easier with his blowup-prone ways.

Oilers' Scrivens Set For Tuesday Start

News: Ben Scrivens is lined up to start Tuesday's game against the Blues, Lou Korac of NHL.com reports.
Analysis: Ben Scrivens was the first goaltender off the ice following the Oilers' morning skate, which puts him on track to start Tuesday night. He will face a stiff test Tuesday from a Blues team that tallied a whopping 24 goals over its last four games.

Oilers' Scrivens Allows Four In Loss

News: Ben Scrivens allowed four goals on 27 shots in Sunday's 4-2 loss to the Panthers.
Analysis: Ben Scrivens had been seemingly turning a corner lately with a string of good performances and back-to-back wins over the Islanders and Blackhawks coming in, but he took a step back on Sunday. Given the 28-year-old's shaky numbers (3.01 GAA and .897 save percentage), his recent success may have just been more of an aberration.

Oilers' Scrivens To Start Sunday

News: Ben Scrivens will start in net against the Panthers on Sunday, Reid Wilkins of 630 CHED reports.
Analysis: Ben Scrivens will be looking for his ninth win of the season Sunday. He'll enter the game with a lowly .898 save percentage coupled with a 2.98 GAA.

Oilers' Scrivens Beats Blackhawks

News: Ben Scrivens turned aside 19 of 21 shots in a 5-2 win over the visiting Blackhawks on Friday.
Analysis: What do the Blackhawks, Kings and Islanders have in common? They've all been beaten by Ben Scrivens and the lowly Oilers in the last two weeks, indicating an improvement in play by Alberta's most northern team. Sure, he lost to Colorado and Calgary in between, but he's definitely been better of late, giving up two or fewer goals in six of his last seven starts. It's not enough for us to send you scrambling to the wire to snatch him up, but Scrivens' play has definitely improved and is worth monitoring if you're in need of help between the pipes and your league is conducive to spot starts.

Oilers' Scrivens Receives Starting Nod 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: Rested Tuesday in favor of backup Viktor Fasth, Ben Scrivens will return to the net for the 10th time in 12 games. He's helped keep the Oilers more competitive of late with save percentages above .930 in four of his last five turns, picking up two wins in the process. Considering how miserable Edmonton had been prior to that, it's enough to give Scrivens ample security in the starting role.

Oilers' Scrivens Not Starting Tuesday

News: Updating a previous report, Ben Scrivens will in fact not start Tuesday's game against the Red Wings, Oilers broadcaster Jack Michaels reports.
Analysis: Michaels reported during Tuesday's morning skate that Ben Scrivens would start Tuesday night, but either that was incorrect or the team changed course.Either way, Viktor Fasth will start Tuesday, and Scrivens will serve as his backup.

Oilers' Scrivens Starts Tuesday

News: Ben Scrivens will be in goal for Tuesday's game against the Red Wings, Oilers broadcaster Jack Michaels reports.
Analysis: Ben Scrivens has struggled this season, but has played well of late, giving up two goals or fewer in four of his last five starts. He will take on a Detroit team that has won just three of its last 11 games entering Tuesday's contest.

Oilers' Scrivens Makes 31 Saves In Win

News: Ben Scrivens stopped 31 of 33 shots in Sunday's win over the Islanders
Analysis: That's back-to-back fantastic outings from Ben Scrivens, whose stopped 58 of 61 shots in his last two games (.951 save percentage). While he starts basically every game, the Oilers have struggled all season, with the 28-year-old's lackluster 7-13-7 record reflecting of that. He's been playing well, though, so if the Oilers can build off this five-goal performance, Scrivens could be one to keep an eye on.

Oilers To Start Scrivens On Sunday

News: Ben Scrivens will start in net against the Islanders on Sunday, Oilers' play-by-play announcer Jack Michaels reports.
Analysis: Ben Scrivens will receive his ninth start in the past 10 games, and is coming off a strong showing in which he allowed just one goal on 28 shots in regulation in overtime, eventually winding up with a shootout loss. He heads into Sunday's matchup carrying a 6-13-7 record with a .896 save percentage and 3.05 GAA.

Oilers' Scrivens Flounders In Shootout

News: Ben Scrivens took a shootout loss Friday against the Avalanche after stopping 27 of 28 shots in regulation and overtime.
Analysis: Ben Scrivens' numbers this season are horrendous across every category, but he's actually been rather dependable his last few times out. Over his last four outings, he's posted a .931 save percentage, but has only picked up one victory during that time. The wins will remain scarce while Edmonton continues to provide offense without any consistency.

Oilers' Scrivens To Receive Nod Friday

News: Ben Scrivens will be in the crease Friday against the Avalanche.
Analysis: Ben Scrivens receives his third straight start on the heels of his recent upset win over the Kings on Tuesday night, during which he stopped 37 of 39 shots. He fell back to earth with a poor showing against the Flames the next night, reminding fantasy owners why it's difficult to trust him at this time. The goalie's record sits at 6-13-6 for the season, with dismal ratios (3.14 GAA, .894 save percentage) further damaging his value.

Oilers' Scrivens Loses Again Wednesday

News: Ben Scrivens dropped an overtime decision to the Flames on Wednesday, allowing four goals on 28 shots as the Oilers fell 4-3.
Analysis: A shocking win over the Kings the night before ended an eight-game losing streak for Ben Scrivens, but that doesn't change the fact that Wednesday's loss to Calgary is now the 19th loss in the last 21 games for the fourth-year NHLer. Scrivens' record now sits at 6-13-6 with a 3.14 GAA and .894 save percentage, numbers that -- combined with the fact that the team in front of him is one of the worst in the league -- make him nearly unownable in all formats.

Scrivens, Oilers Surprise Kings In Shootout

News: Ben Scrivens stopped 37 of 39 shots and was flawless in the shootout to deliver a 3-2 win over the Kings on Tuesday.
Analysis: Raise your hand if you saw that one coming -- Ben Scrivens' first victory in more than three weeks, and it came against the defending Stanley Cup champions. He'd last won back on Dec. 7 against the Sharks. Though this was a nice game, the Oilers' inconsistent offense and porous defense make Scrivens an unreliable fantasy start. The Oil managed just 21 shots on Jonathan Quick at the other end of the ice while giving up 39 on Scrivens, so they really got bailed out by the goalie in this one.

Oilers Stick With Scrivens For Back-To-Back

News: Ben Scrivens will remain in the net for Wednesday's match against Calgary.
Analysis: Previous coach Dallas Eakins usually preferred to split back-to-back starts between his two goaltenders, but interim boss Todd Nelson will stick with Ben Scrivens for the second straight contest. It's hard to argue with the decision after Scrivens led the Oilers to an upset victory over the Kings in a shootout Tuesday, stopping 37 of 39 shots to outduel Jonathan Quick. Similar results shouldn't be expected from Scrivens on Wednesday, nor on most occasions he'll man the net, as the Oilers are still a disaster in all facets of the game.

Oilers' Scrivens To Start Tuesday

News: Ben Scrivens will start Tuesday's game against the Kings, Tom Gazzola of OilersTV.com reports.
Analysis: In the midst of a disappointing season, Ben Scrivens will try to turns things around against one of his former teams. He has just one win since Oct. 27.

Oilers' Scrivens Saves 20 In Relief

News: Ben Scrivens stopped 20 of 21 shots in relief Saturday, as the Oilers took a 4-1 loss to the Flames.
Analysis: After getting pulled after just five minutes in his previous appearance upon allowing two goals on three shots, Ben Scrivens found himself on the other side of the coin Saturday. Viktor Fasth was beaten for three scores on six shots in the game's first nine minutes, resulting in Scrivens logging close to a full outing in this one. Despite Scrivens' fine play in relief, the Oilers still found themselves in too large of a hole to recover from, taking their 20th loss in 21 games.

Ben Scrivens

Five-Minute Start For Oilers' Scrivens

News: Ben Scrivens lasted only five minutes into Tuesday's start against the Coyotes, as he was pulled after giving up two goals on the first three shots he faced in an eventual 5-1 loss.
Analysis: Viktor Fasth wasn't very good in relief, but at least he put up a save mark higher than .333. Ben Scrivens has been fairly awful over the last three games -- with a big shout-out to his awful defense -- as he's given up 11 goals on just 78 shots. He remains without a win since Dec. 7, and before that since Oct. 27, so Scrivens is about as bad a fantasy option in goal as there is out there.

Ben Scrivens

Oilers' Scrivens To Start Tuesday

News: Ben Scrivens will get the start in net Tuesday against the Coyotes, team broadcaster Jack Michaels reports.
Analysis: Ben Scrivens enters Tuesday's contest against Arizona with a five game losing streak, and has allowed nine goals in his last two starts alone. If at all possible, the 28-year-old goaltender should be avoided in all but the deepest of fantasy formats as the Oilers continue to struggle through an abysmal season.

Oilers' Scrivens Picks Up Another Loss

News: Ben Scrivens made 40 saves but allowed five goals in Sunday's 6-5 shootout loss to the Stars.
Analysis: Ben Scrivens now has suffered through five consecutive defeats, allowing nine goals in the last two. His defense hasn't helped the 28-year-old as he's faced 119 shots in the last three games and should probably be avoided as both he and the team struggle through the season.

Oilers Start Scrivens Sunday

News: Ben Scrivens will start in net against the Stars on Sunday, play-by-play announcer Jack Michaels reports.
Analysis: Ben Scrivens struggled in his last start Thursday, allowing four goals on 30 shots against the Sharks. He will start again Sunday against the Stars, as he looks to break a stretch of four straight losses between the pipes.
