EDMONTON -- Edmonton Oilers goaltender Ben Scrivens is not one to live in the past.
Scrivens stopped all 59 shots he faced Jan. 29 against the San Jose Sharks, setting an NHL record for most saves in a regulation shutout.
Scrivens will start Tuesday when the Oilers play the Sharks. It's the first time the teams have met since his record-setting effort.
"Honestly, it was a fun game to play in, but that game is behind us," Scrivens said. "We have a game [Tuesday] and I'm not going to be thinking about games in the past, whether it was last night or the last time we played them. It's a game that happened in the past. I'm moving forward."
Scrivens' performance in that 3-0 win against the Sharks was his best as a member of the Oilers. He was acquired in a trade from the Los Angeles Kings on Jan. 15.
"That was a performance that many of us will never forget," Oilers center Ryan Nugent-Hopkins said. "We want to play really well for him [Tuesday]. We can't expect that [59 saves] every night from him."
The Oilers go into the game on a two-game losing skid, most recently an 8-1 loss to the Calgary Flames on Saturday. It was the biggest margin of defeat at home to Calgary in franchise history.
"[Tuesday] is a big game for us to have a bounce-back night," Scrivens said. "The game [Saturday] is water under the bridge now. Obviously we're not going to take it lightly; we didn’t play the way we wanted to play so [Tuesday] it is going to be a good test to see our mentality and our fortitude in here.
"We're going to have to come out and be ready to play a very good team. They're going to be raring to go, especially after [Monday, a 2-1 shootout loss to the Flames]."
The Sharks go into the game on a two-game winless skid. However, the point they earned in the shootout loss to the Flames earned them a spot in the Stanley Cup Playoffs for the 10th consecutive season.
The Sharks did not skate Tuesday morning at Rexall Place.
"[San Jose] is a powerful team that can beat you a number of ways," Oilers coach Dallas Eakins said. "We certainly can't come around and stand and watch. We have to skate."
The Oilers called up goaltender Laurent Brossoit from their American Hockey League affiliate in Oklahoma City to backup Scrivens. Goalie Viktor Fasth was injured in a collision Monday during practice.
