Sunday could have provided a nice medium-sized storyline in Devan Dubnyk facing his former team the Edmonton Oilers and his sort-of replacement Ben Scrivens. Instead, the Nashville Predators sent out Carter Hutton, so we’ll just have to settle for Scrivens gaining his first win with Edmonton 5-1.
In his third game with the Oil, the 27-year-old stopped 34 out of 35 shots to get that win. His overall numbers still look great, as he improved his record to 8-7-4 with a .930 save percentage and 2.03 GAA.
“The guys did a good job allowing me to see pucks and clearing rebounds,” Scrivens said.
The Oilers have a quick turnaround with a game against the Canucks in Vancouver on Sunday. Oilers play-by-play man Jack Michaels reports that Ilya Bryzgalov is expected to start tomorrow while Ales Hemsky (ankle) and Andrew Ference (upper body) won’t play.
