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

Ben Scrivens

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.

Ben Scrivens

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.

Ben Scrivens

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.

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.

Scrivens Allows Four As Oilers Fall

News: Ben Scrivens gave up four goals on 31 shots in Thursday's 5-2 loss to the Bruins.
Analysis: Things looked like they were getting on track for Ben Scrivens in the form of a four-game winning streak at the end of October, but he's dropped his first two outings since the turn of the calendar. Viktor Fasth has been a disaster so far, though, so expect the Oil to stick with Scrivens most nights.

Ben Scrivens

Oilers' Scrivens To Start Thursday

News: Ben Scrivens will be in the net Thursday against the Bruins.
Analysis: After the Oilers went with backup Viktor Fasth on Tuesday against the Flyers, the well-rested Ben Scrivens will return to the crease looking to snap his two-game losing skid. The 28-year-old has been prone to running hot and cold this season. After losing his first four games, Scrivens amassed a surprising four wins in a row before commencing his latest losing streak. He's probably not a trustworthy option on the road against what projects to be one of the better teams in the Eastern Conference.

Oilers' Scrivens Gives Up Three Goals In Loss

News: Ben Scrivens gave up three goals on 30 shots in Saturday's loss to the Canucks.
Analysis: Ben Scrivens is now 4-5-0 on the season with a .897 save percentage and 3.01 GAA. With Viktor Fasth now recovered from his groin injury, the Oilers may decide to give Scrivens a rest for a game or two. Scrivens appears to be the starting goalie in Edmonton, but if Fasth gets hot, don't be surprised if the team rolls with the goalie who is playing better.

Scrivens To Start For Edmonton On Saturday

News: Ben Scrivens will start Saturday versus the Canucks, according to the Oilers web site.
Analysis: Viktor Fasth has recovered from his groin injury and is once again ready to play but Edmonton will stick with Ben Scrivens, who has played better of late after a rough start to the season.

Oilers' Scrivens Streak Ends With Loss

News: Ben Scrivens' four-game winning streak came to an end Wednesday in a 4-1 loss to the visiting Predators. He stopped 31 of 35 shots.
Analysis: Tough luck for Ben Scrivens, who ran into a surprisingly potent Nashville offense in this one. He was bound to take a step back at some point after rattling off four straight wins at home, but definitely flashed his upside and will give prospective fantasy owners something to think about should they need a goaltender. Despite the run of victories that saw him stop 102 of 110 shots for a save percentage of .927, Scrivens' mark on the year still sits below the coveted .900 mark (.896) to go with a 3.01 GAA, so he's still far from an elite option on an inconsistent Oilers team.

Ben Scrivens

Oilers Stick With Red-Hot Scrivens

News: Ben Scrivens will be in the crease Wednesday against the Predators, Oilers play-by-play announcer Jack Michaels reports.
Analysis: After losing his first three starts of the season in miserable fashion, Ben Scrivens has done a dramatic 180 his last four times out, posting a .942 save percentage and capturing his first shutout of the season. He's expected to face off against the Predators' own red-hot goalie, Pekka Rinne, who has roared to a 5-1-1 record and 1.81 GAA over his seven outings this season.

Oilers' Scrivens Nabs Fourth Straight Win

News: Ben Scrivens turned in a gem Monday, stopping all 29 shots to blank the visiting Canadiens 3-0. He's now won four in a row after going 0-3 to start the season.
Analysis: The goose egg marks the seventh career shutout for the Alberta native, who has turned aside 130 of the last 138 shots he's faced for a scorching .942 save percentage over his last five games. Of course, banking on the Oilers is always a gamble, but the team has looked good over it's four-game winning streak, so this could be a good time to pounce on Ben Scrivens if you need some help between the pipes.

Oilers' Scrivens Starting Monday

News: Ben Scrivens will start in goal Monday against the Canadiens.
Analysis: The Oilers have won each of Ben Scrivens' last three starts after a dismal start to the season in which Scrivens allowed 14 goals in his first three games. He's allowed eight in four games since and has 81 saves over his last three contests.

Scrivens Leads Oilers To Third Straight Win

News: Ben Scrivens recorded his third consecutive victory Friday against the Hurricanes, stopping 27 of 30 shots in the 6-3 win.
Analysis: Ben Scrivens performed a little less steadily against the Hurricanes than he did earlier in the week in wins over the Capitals and Lightning, but he didn't require his best effort to dispatch the league's only winless team. The goalie seems to be settling in nicely after a horrendous first three outings of 2014-15, which continues to keep his season goals-against average above 3.00 and save percentage below .900, despite the winning streak.

Oilers To Go With Scrivens On Friday

News: Ben Scrivens will be in the crease Friday against the Hurricanes.
Analysis: After a woeful start to the season, Ben Scrivens has righted the ship the last two times out with victories against quality teams in the Lightning and Capitals. A matchup with the offensively impotent Hurricanes should allow him to further trim down his 3.36 GAA.

Oilers' Scrivens Wins Second Straight

News: Ben Scrivens thwarted 32 of 34 shots Wednesday in a 3-2 win over the visiting Capitals.
Analysis: After failing to record a victory in his first four appearances, Ben Scrivens has turned things around against two very good teams in the Capitals and Lightning, whom the Oilers beat Monday. If this isn't just an aberration, Scrivens could provide some much-needed stability between the pipes for an inconsistent Oilers squad. We wouldn't jump the gun just yet, but go ahead and keep an eye on Scrivens to see if he and the rest of the boys from Oil Country can parlay their short-term success into something more.

Oilers' Scrivens To Start In Goal Wednesday Night

News: Ben Scrivens will be between the pipes for Wednesday's game against the Capitals, Mike Vogel of WashingtonCaps.com reports.
Analysis: Ben Scrivens has a less-than-impressive 3.65 GAA over his first five games this year, but has shown signs of improvement, allowing just three goals in his past two contests. He'll take on a Washington squad that is fourth in the league with 3.40 goals scored per game.

Oilers' Scrivens Earns First Win Monday

News: Ben Scrivens turned aside 22 of 24 shots en route to his first victory of the season over the visiting Lightning on Monday.
Analysis: It took five starts, but Ben Scrivens finally erased the goose egg in the win column for the Oilers, who are now 1-4-1 on the season. Despite his solid play against one of the league's most formidable offenses in Tampa Bay, we wouldn't go scrambling to grab him (or any other Oilers netminder) off your wire just yet. It's probably best waiting for the skaters in front of Scrivens to prove they're capable of stringing a few wins together, first.

Oilers' Scrivens Will Start Monday

News: Ben Scrivens will be in goal Monday against the Lightning, reports Tom Gazzola of Oilers TV.
Analysis: Scivens will make his third consecutive start in net for the Oilers on Monday. During Friday's loss to the Canucks, he managed to stop 28 of 29 shots in his best start of the season. He'll try to continue his short-term success despite giving up a total of 11 goals in his first two starts.
