Video: Krejci blasts one past Scrivens to end shutout streak

Feb 1, 2014, 3:16 PM EDT

Edmonton Oilers goaltender Ben Scrivens has made some good saves this afternoon, but the Boston Bruins ended his shutout streak at 126:41 minutes.

After he turned aside 102 consecutive shots, including his record-breaking 59-save shutout against San Jose on Wednesday, Bruins forward David Krejci was finally able to launch a shot to the back of the net.

The Bruins had the man advantage and the Oilers were further handicapped by the fact that Nick Schultz‘s stick had broken. Consequently, Boston was given ample opportunity to move the puck around before Jarome Iginla fed the puck to Krejci for the one timer.

You can see the goal below:

The Bruins nearly made the game 2-0, but a potential goal off of Loui Eriksson‘s skate was overruled because there was a kicking motion. Dougie Hamilton finally succeeded in providing Boston with an insurance goal at 6:43 of the third period.

Meanwhile, Scrivens’ stick from Wednesday’s game will be put in the Hall of Fame, according to Sportsnet’s Gene Principe.

    Pretty dominant. Excited for Tuesday’s game in Boston against the Canucks. I expect Lucic to be fired up. Last time they played at home he was incorrectly tossed from the game in the first period. Either way, it was one of the most emotionally charged games of the past few years.Last game for Chara too, before he heads off to the olympics. I think Torts is back by then?

      Not sure, but as much as I love the Olympics, it’s becoming kind of an intrusion to the season. . Hate seeing teams lose any guys, even for a game or two, when a game or two could be the difference in a playoff spot. . Never mind the extended break for teams that are really just finding or in their groove.. I heard the NHL is thinking about skipping the next one because of all this..

    Another blown call from Toronto involving a puck kicked into the net. I’d say it was even worse as all Eriksson did was turn his skate (i.e. deflect) and the momentum from the initial pass was what put the puck in the net.

    It’s absolutely crazy that they can’t follow their own rules, even in situations that are specifically covered in the rulebook.

      @shortsxit34.. Absolutely agree… For the life of me I can’t see how that could be ruled no goal according to the rule. The momentum of the puck and angle of the skate carried the puck in net. There’s no intent with the skate, the swatting with the stick alone shows that, as it was a millisecond before the puck hit the skate.. He was bracing himself from being pushed from behind. .

      God I love this game, but I have to liken the consistancy of the officiating to WWE officiating.. And that goes for any team.. Make up calls for missed calls, one minute this is a penalty, the next it’s not. . And soon as a team goes down by more than a goal in the 3rd, suddenly they’re given multiple powers plays to keep them in the game & people watching/interested/entertained.. In a nutshell, manipulating games to keep them tight or high scoring. Goes right along with the NHLs initiative to increase scoring a few years back when they instated all the new rules gear towards higher scoring.. it’s a shame.. just let em play the game.. and while you’re at it, stick to your own book..
