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.

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.

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.

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.

Oilers' Scrivens Beaten Easily By Minnesota

News: Ben Scrivens allowed four goals on 29 shots in a 4-0 shutout loss to the visiting Wild.
Analysis: The offense mustered just 15 shots in front of him, but at this point, excuses aren't even necessary for one of the worst teams in the league. Ben Scrivens' .895 save percentage and 3.01 GAA make him one 'tender to avoid in all formats, as there isn't really a single spot-start opponent we could recommend given the Oilers' mediocrity.

Oilers' Scrivens Beats Bruins In Shootout

News: Ben Scrivens turned in a gem of a performance Wednesday, stopping 38 of 41 shots before beating the visiting Bruins 4-3 in a shootout.
Analysis: Ben Scrivens looked good after missing just over a week with a hamstring issue, effectively denying the Bruins of the coveted extra point that would have helped them distance themselves in the Eastern Conference playoff race. Scrivens certainly has had a season to forget (11 wins in 39 appearances with a dreadful .896 save percentage and 2.98 GAA) but with nothing to lose and the Oilers taking on the role of spoiler down the stretch, he could be an interesting play in certain matchups. As long as your other options in net are limited, of course.

Oilers To Roll With Scrivens On Wednesday

News: Ben Scrivens (hamstring) will return to the net for Wednesday's game against the Bruins, Jack Michaels of the Oilers Radio Network reports.
Analysis: The netminder missed just over a week of action with the hamstring issue. Prior to his injury, Ben Scrivens had been locked in a tight battle with Viktor Fasth for the Oilers' No. 1 goalie duties, but the net should belong exclusively to Scrivens for the foreseeable future after Fasth was ruled out indefinitely with a knee ailment. Despite the increased job security, Scrivens won't notice much of an uptick in fantasy leagues, as he's been virtually unplayable this season due to his ugly ratios. With the Oilers selling off any spare parts they can as the trade deadline approaches, Scrivens' team context will probably only get worse from here.

Oilers Activate Scrivens From IR

News: Ben Scrivens (hamstring) was activated from IR on Wednesday.
Analysis: The Oilers will swap out one goalie for another on the 23-man roster, as Viktor Fasth, who hurt his knee in Monday's shootout loss to the Jets, was moved to IR to accommodate Ben Scrivens' return. The Oilers haven't explicitly stated that Scrivens is fully healthy, but his activation would seem to signal that he's on track to get the nod in goal for Wednesday's tilt with the Bruins.

Oilers' Scrivens (Hamstring) May Return Wednesday

News: Ben Scrivens (hamstring) is expected to be available for the Oilers when they face the Bruins on Wednesday, play-by-play announcer Jack Michaels reports.
Analysis: Ben Scrivens is currently on the disabled list with a hamstring injury but is apparently nearing a return to the ice. Further complicating things, Viktor Fasth suffered a knee injury during Monday's game against the Jets leaving his availability in question for Wednesday. As a result, Scrivens' return to the ice will be timely if he does in fact get lifted from the disabled list ahead of Wednesday's game.

Oilers Place Scrivens On IR

News: The Oilers placed Ben Scrivens (hamstring) on injured reserve on Saturday, Joanne Ireland of the Edmonton Journal reports.
Analysis: Coach Todd Nelson indicated earlier in the week that Ben Scrivens would be "out a while" due to the hamstring issue, so the move to injured reserve wasn't unexpected. Scrivens has yet to resume practicing since suffering the injury in Monday's win over the Devils, leaving Viktor Fasth to serve as the Oilers' top goaltender in the meantime.

Oilers' Scrivens Out Indefinitely Due To Hamstring

News: Ben Scrivens will be "out a while" due to the hamstring injury, Jack Michaels of the Oilers Radio Network reports.
Analysis: Viktor Fasth had already been slated to serve as Tuesday's starter in goal against the Islanders, but it looks like he'll get an extended run as the Oilers' top netminder with Ben Scrivens possibly looking at a trip to the DL. The Oilers may be able to provide a more exact timetable later in the week, but Scrivens' fantasy owners shouldn't anticipate a quick return. The team has recalled Richard Bachman from AHL Oklahoma City to back up Fasth in the interim.

Oilers' Scrivens Dealing With Hamstring Injury

News: Ben Scrivens will miss time with a hamstring injury.
Analysis: With Ben Scrivens having tweaked his hamstring Monday against New Jersey, the Oilers have recalled fellow goalie Richard Bachman on an emergency basis.

Oilers' Scrivens Untested In Win

News: Ben Scrivens faced just 14 shots, saving 13 of them, in Monday's 2-1 win over the Devils.
Analysis: It wasn't a particularly difficult outing for Ben Scrivens as he faced just eight shots after the end of the first period, but he hasn't enjoyed much success this season so a win's a win. The 28-year-old has won two of his last three, but they came against Buffalo and New Jersey, both in the bottom five in the league in scoring, so it would be nice to see him more heavily tested before starting to rely on him on a regular basis.

Oilers' Scrivens Gets Starting Nod Monday

News: Ben Scrivens will get the start in net for Monday's game against the Devils, Oilers broadcaster Jack Michaels reports.
Analysis: Ben Scrivens was already tabbed as the likely starter for the front end of a back-to-back, and he will indeed be between the pipes after three starts in a row for Victor Fasth. It will be his first start since Jan. 31, but his performance this season makes him a risky play in most fantasy leagues even when he does get the starting nod.

Oilers' Scrivens Likely To Start Monday

News: Ben Scrivens is considered a "strong possibility" to start Monday's game against the Devils, Oilers broadcaster Jack Michaels reports.
Analysis: Ben Scrivens appears to be in line for the start Monday after three straight starts by Victor Fasth. While Scrivens will finally see some time between the pipes, he hasn't performed well enough to warrant use in most fantasy leagues.

Oilers' Scrivens Garners Nod Saturday

News: Ben Scrivens will be in the cage for Saturday's game against the Flames, Jack Michaels of the Oilers Radio Network reports.
Analysis: After a capable showing Thursday against the Sabres during which he allowed two goals on 20 shots, Ben Scrivens will earn a second consecutive nod. The Oilers have been playing better hockey since the calendar turned to 2015, but it's still difficult to count on Scrivens for wins against the NHL's elite teams, and even middle-of-the-pack squads like the Flames. Scrivens' value is further hindered by the Oilers seemingly adopting a timeshare in goal, as Viktor Fasth has kept his name salient in the battle for starting duties.

Oilers' Scrivens Makes 29 Saves In Loss

News: Ben Scrivens made 29 saves in the Oilers 4-2 loss to the Flames on Saturday.
Analysis: Ben Scrivens and the Oilers were handed a 2-0 lead less than 12 minutes into the game but as per usual, couldn't hold onto the lead. Stop me if you heard this before but about the only thing Edmonton has to look forward to this season is another shot at the top lottery pick.

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.
