It was his first game action in exactly two weeks. It was his debut for the Edmonton Oilers.
Scrivens allowed four goals on 33 shots and the Oilers lost to the Wild by a final score of 4-1. Minnesota scored three unanswered goals, including a pair just two minutes and 12 seconds apart late in the second period, to break open a tied hockey game.
Not the start Scrivens was hoping for, as he joins the team he remembers cheering for as a kid growing up in Edmonton.
“I thought he was solid for the most part… I know he would have liked that second one back, but overall he was good,” said Edmonton’s head coach Dallas Eakins after the game.
