Oilers Win Behind Scrivens' 40 Saves

News: Ben Scrivens closed the season with a 40-save, 5-2 win over Vancouver on Saturday.
Analysis: And now the coaching staff gets to sort through the stats and decide whether Ben Scrivens or Viktor Fasth will rise to become the team's No. 1 netminder next season. We think Scrivens has a slight edge right now, but it's a long way to October.

Oilers' Scrivens To Make Final Start Saturday

News: Ben Scrivens will make his final start of the season Saturday against the Canucks.
Analysis: Coach Dallas Eakins will split the final two starts for the Oilers, with Viktor Fasth getting the nod for the first of the two games Thursday against Los Angeles. The Oilers will use the performances of both goalies this season to determine a more clear-cut No. 1 option heading into next season, with Ben Scrivens likely in better position for those duties than Fasth at the moment.

News: Ben Scrivens stopped 24 of 26 shots during regulation and then another five between overtime and the shootout as the Oilers' beat the Coyotes 3-2 on Friday.
Analysis: Ben Scrivens ended an ugly two-game losing streak in which he allowed a total of 10 goals and helped play spoiler against a Phoenix team struggling to earn a playoff berth with very little time left in the season. It hasn't been an easy road for him since being dealt to the Oilers in early January, but he has managed to maintain a solid 2.53 GAA with a .922 save percentage over 38 games this season.

Scrivens Expected To Start For Edmonton Sunday

News: Ben Scrivens is expected to start for Edmonton versus the Rangers on Sunday.
Analysis: Ben Scrivens is coming off of a 48 save performance against the Ducks on Friday but if the defense doesn't tighten things up it will be dangerous to say the least to rely on any Edmonton goaltender.

Oilers' Scrivens Makes 48 Saves In Win Friday

News: Ben Scrivens stopped 48 of 51 shots as the Oilers beat the Ducks 4-3 on Friday.
Analysis: Ben Scrivens has struggled recently and has allowed 14 goals over his last four games, but in his defense, he's faced a ridiculous number of shots and has had minimal help from his blue-liners. Still, he's been extremely reliable this season and despite the rough patch, still has a 2.39 GAA over 35 games.

Scrivens Yields Three In Relief Role

News: Ben Scrivens allowed three goals on just 15 shots in 32:42 of crease time Saturday as the Oilers lost at home to Calgary, 8-1.
Analysis: By the time he entered the game in the second frame, it was already 5-1, and things didn't improve from there. The Oilers' goaltending duo has promise, but you should regard that as a long-term proposition.

Oilers' Scrivens Falls To Sabres

News: Ben Scrivens let in three goals on 36 shot attempts as the Oilers fell to the Sabres on Thursday.
Analysis: It was another solid performance by Ben Scrivens, but he was ultimately outdone by opposing goalie Matt Hackett, who saved 35 of 36 attempts. Scrivens has collected 30-plus saves in nine of his 13 outings with the Oilers, a trend that figures to continue given the lack of defensive talent in front of him.

Oilers Turn To Scrivens On Thursday

News: Ben Scrivens will draw the start in goal Thursday against the Sabres.
Analysis: It appears coach Dallas Eakins intends to split the starts the rest of the way between Ben Scrivens and Viktor Fasth, with Scrivens representing a great starting option Thursday against a languishing Sabres squad. The timeshare may hurt Scrivens' value compared to goaltenders with a firmer grip on the No. 1 job, but he's played well in nearly every start he's made for Edmonton. Scrivens owns a 2.50 GAA and .932 save percentage in 12 appearances with Edmonton since arriving in a trade with the Kings on Jan. 15.

Scrivens Will Be Part Of A Rotation For Edmonton

News: Ben Scrivens will be part of a regular rotation in net for the Oilers, according to the Edmonton Journal.
Analysis: The Oilers are going to give both Ben Scrivens and Viktor Fasth a chance to show what they can do during the final weeks of the season. Edmonton has done a good job of turning a weakness into a strength with this duo and may not be in the market for an upgrade during the offseason, as both Fasth and Scrivens are likely to go into training camp in September battling for the team's number one job.

Oilers' Scrivens Stops 29 In Win

News: Ben Scrivens made 29 saves on 30 shots in a victory over the Hurricanes on Sunday.
Analysis: This is a nice bounce back for Ben Scrivens after he had a couple of poor starts. He still is second in the NHL in save percentage, so there is not much reason for worry, if any.

Blues Light Up Oilers' Scrivens

News: Ben Scrivens allowed six goals on 37 shots in Thursday's loss to the Blues.
Analysis: Things were going well 'til the third period, in which St. Louis put four unanswered goals past Scriens. Some starts like this are to be expected because Ben Scrivens plays for a bad team, but he's still proven himself to be the Oilers' best option in goal by far.

Oilers Will Start Scrivens On Thursday

News: Ben Scrivens will be in goal Thursday vs. the Blues.
Analysis: Though he yielded Tuesday's start vs. the Wild to Viktor Fasth, Ben Scrivens still seems to be in firm command of the No. 1 goalie job for the time being. Wins haven't been easy to gather for Scrivens, but he's been a saves machine in front of a leaky defense. Scrivens has posted a save percentage above .900 in all but two of his 10 starts with Edmonton.

Oilers' Scrivens Stops 46 In Loss
