Ben Scrivens stopped 23 of 27 shots in Sunday's 4-2 loss to Florida.

It's Scrivens' first regulation loss in his last six starts. The 28-year-old has posted some ugly individual numbers this season, which is a reflection of the Oilers in general. Scrivens has an 8-14-7 record with a 3.01 goals-against-average and a .897 save percentage. He isn't a recommended play in standard fantasy leagues.

Save for the two goals by Brandon Saad, which were tip-ins off a rebound, Scrivens was on top of his game from start to finish. Plus, the Oilers defended well in general. Scrivens now owns an 8-13-7 record with a 2.98 GAA and .898 save percentage.

Ben Scrivens will face Chicago on Friday night.

Scrivens comes in with 86 goals against through 25 starts and 31 games so far this season, plus eight goals against in two career games versus Chicago. Any way you slice it, playing Scrivens seems like a bad idea.
Jan 9 - 7:43 PM

Ben Scrivens stopped 31 of 33 shots in Edmonton's 5-2 win over the Islanders.

The Oilers picked up a rare two points on Sunday night. This was Edmonton's first regulation win since December 7th.

Jan 5 - 12:23 AM

Jan 4 - 5:27 PM

Ben Scrivens stopped 25-26 shots sent his way but only 1-3 shootout attempts, falling to the Avalanche 2-1 on Friday.

It was a very good game for Scrivens, his first in a long time, but Matt Duchene and Alex Tanguay made him look silly in the shootout. Getting Scrivens to commit far too early and essentially giving up the net.
Jan 3 - 12:14 AM

Ben Scrivens will start for the Edmonton Oilers Friday night.

It will be Scrivens' third game in just four days. The Oilers are leaning on him as they've gone 1-0-1 in their last two contests, which is a great stretch by their standards. He has a 3.14 GAA and .894 save percentage in 29 contests this season.
Jan 2 - 3:38 PM

Ben Scrivens turned aside 24-of-28 shots in the Oilers' 4-3 loss to Calgary on Wednesday.

Scrivens was unable to back stop his team to a second straight win but he did make enough quality saves to keep his team in the game. With a 3.16 goals against average and six wins, he's barely worth a spot start unless you are pretty desperate. It doesn't get any easier for the Oilers as seven of their next eight games are against playoff caliber teams.
