Video: Scrivens makes diving save on one of 51 shots

Mar 29, 2014, 10:44 AM EDT

When Ben Scrivens broke an NHL record with his 59-save shutout on Jan. 29, Oilers coach Dallas Eakins said that he happy for Scrivens, but hope his teammates never put him through that again.

They came close last night when Edmonton allowed the Anaheim Ducks to fire 51 shots on goal. Scrivens didn’t get a shutout this time, but he did more than his fair share in the Oilers’ 4-3 overtime victory.

Here’s a sample of his most recent performance:

Yesterday’s game was the third time Scrivens faced at least 50 shots in just 15 starts with Edmonton. He’s done his best under the circumstances though with a .924 save percentage since he was acquired from Los Angeles.

The Oilers can’t be happy with how this season has gone, but with Scrivens between the pipes, their goaltending situation looks better than it did when the campaign began.

    Glad to see the Oilers have a goalie that can play…..big changes coming from Edmonton I think… Lowe Mac T and Eakins scouting staff all have to go.. 7 years is proof enough… Fans are past the point if being fed up… We need a strong team again in Edmonton… ( I’m a Flames fan)
