BLOG: Scrivens not concerned with labels

by Chris Wescott / Edmonton Oilers
The sentiment around the media is that the Edmonton Oilers boast two solid NHL goaltenders to start this season, but no clear-cut number one. Labels mean nothing to one of those goaltenders, Ben Scrivens, who says the two of them just need to go out and play winning hockey when called upon.

“That’s not really my problem to worry about how people want to label us,” Scrivens said. “Whether we are a tandem that switches back and forth or one of us takes the reins and runs with it, that’s going to be a decision for the coaching staff. But I don’t think the team is going to care who is in as long as we are giving the team a chance to win. That’s the biggest thing, not being a liability when either one of us is in net. However it shakes out that it happens we need to give this team good goaltending.”
