Ben Scrivens Picks Up Record 59 Save Shutout

In case you missed it, Ben Scrivens was on fire last night. His Oilers were taking on one of the top teams in the NHL, the San Jose Sharks, and Scrivens was unbelievable between the pipes.

Scrivens made a record setting 59 saves in his fourth shutout of the season. Incredibly, he was punished with 20 shots in the first period, 22 in the second, and another 17 in the third. He was the best player on the ice for either team, and helped the Oilers to their third straight victory.

The Oilers and Scrivens were helped by Justin Schultz, Taylor Hall and Jordan Eberle, each of whom scored a goal during the contest. The Oilers topped the Sharks with a final score of 3-0.

For the Sharks, every skater but one had a shot on goal during the contest. The only player without a shot, surprisingly, was Joe Pavelski. The majority of players had at least two shots on goal, while Brent Burns led the way with eight.
