Edmonton Oilers goalie Ben Scrivens joined NHL Live via telephone one night after stopping all 59 shots he faced in a 3-0 against the San Jose Sharks. Scrivens set a new record for the most saves in regular-season shutout during the expansion era, breaking the mark of 54 set by the Phoenix Coyotes' Mike Smith on April 3, 2012.
"I just felt like I could see the puck really well," Scrivens said. "Point shots were coming in through traffic, but I was seeing their releases and I was able to read the trajectory of the shots pretty well. They get two posts and shots I didn't see all that cleanly. They just found a way to hit and stick, and stay in high gear. There's definitely a degree of luck that goes along with a game like that."
