Oilers' Scrivens sets shutout record with 59 saves
EDMONTON 3, SAN JOSE 0

EDMONTON, Alberta (AP) -- When the Edmonton Oilers traded for
goalie Ben Scrivens on Jan. 15, they hoped he would help bring
some consistency to the position.

The never expected a performance like the one he gave Wednesday
night.

Scrivens stopped 59 shots, an NHL regular-season record for
saves in a shutout, leading the Oilers to a 3-0 victory over the
San Jose Sharks.

"Hats off to the goaltender, he was tremendous," said San Jose
coach Todd McLellan. "Heck of a performance. In all my years in
the league I don't think I've seen that. We attempted 100 shots
on goal, that doesn't happen very often."

Scrivens topped the previous mark set by Phoenix's Mike Smith,
who stopped 54 shots in a 2-0 victory over Columbus on April 3,
2012.

The Sharks matched the record for shots against the Oilers,
accomplished by the New York Rangers in a 4-3 loss in 1993. This
time, the recently acquired Scrivens turned away all 59 - a team
record for saves - as Edmonton won its third straight.

Scrivens stopped 20 shots in the first, 22 in the second and 17
in the third.

"I had an awful, awful warmup, it was an inauspicious start to
it," he said. "It's one of those things where you try not to
look at the forest while you're in the trees. You try to focus
on the process and give yourself a chance to make that save and
when the puck drops again, you try to focus on the next one and
don't try to get too far ahead of yourself."

Scrivens made his fourth start for the Oilers and won his second
game. He went into the game with an 8-7-4 record overall, a 2.03
goals-against average and .930 save percentage.

Obtained from Los Angeles, Scrivens got in front of point-blank
shots, close-in deflections, goalmouth scrambles and rebounds
his defensemen failed to cover.

The Sharks, 7-3-0 in their previous 10 games, dominated play.
But had nothing to show for it.

"I was seeing the puck well," he said. "We got extremely lucky
with a couple of posts in the second."

Justin Schultz, Jordan Eberle and Taylor Hall scored for
Edmonton, which took 27 shots.

"That's how I thought our skaters were playing the game; they
were watching Ben play," said Oilers coach Dallas Eakins who
wasn't particularly happy despite the win. "It was an incredible
thing to watch, I've never seen that before. I'm so happy for
Ben and proud of him and then you're mad at the same time."

Schultz put the Oilers in front with a long shot at 10:51 of the
first. His harmless looking wrist shot hit a player in front and
eluded the grasp of San Jose goaltender Antti Niemi.

The Sharks rang two shots off the goalpost in the second and
forced Scrivens to be even better than he was in the first
period.

"Obviously you don't want to give up 59 shots, but sometimes a
goalie has to stand on his head and that has to be one of the
best performances by a goalie, I have ever seen," Hall said.

Scrivens flashed his glove to make two sparkling stops off
Bracken Kearns and Demers, seconds apart early in the period. He
got a well-deserved standing ovation late in the period after
stopping Marleau twice - once on a quick breakaway - and then
making his 41st and 42nd saves on a goalmouth scramble. He got
several standing ovations in the third.

The Sharks, whose previous high for shots on goal was 57,
continued their domination in the third period but couldn't find
a way to put the puck in the net.

Hall scored six minutes into the period to finish off a 2-on-1
break with Eberle and then fed Eberle for the third goal with
just over a minute remaining. Hall finished with three points.
