Ben Scrivens has appeared in just four games as a member of the Edmonton Oilers since coming over in a stunning trade with the Los Angeles Kings earlier this month. And in that fourth appearance, which came Wednesday night, Scrivens made NHL history. The Spruce Grove, Alberta, native set an NHL record with 59 saves in shutting out the San Jose Sharks for a 3-0 regulation win. He made 20 saves in the first period, 22 in the second and 17 in the third to set the record. The Oilers put only 27 shots on the San Jose net, less than half of San Jose's total, but it was enough because the Edmonton netminder was stopping literally everything. This is how crazy this game was: The Sharks may have hit the net 59 times, but they actually attempted 100 shots in the game. Even though Scrivens didn't have to stop all those shots, he did see over half of them and was at least reacting to the other half, which either missed the net or were blocked. That's a ton of work.
