Sutter close to overseeing fourth Jennings Trophy with third team

With the 2013-14 campaign almost over, the Los Angeles Kings have an edge in the race for the Jennings Trophy. The award goes to the goalie(s) that play in at least 25 games with the team that allows the least goals in the regular season. Los Angeles is a bit of a unique case in that regard because Jonathan Quick would be the sole recipient despite the fact that he’s only appeared...

Oilers goalie Ben Scrivens getting a first-hand look at the team's lack of focus

Given half a chance, Ben Scrivens could have written another chapter to the 'Man Bites Sharks' story he had going. Twenty-six minutes into the game, Scrivens had made 18 consecutive saves to go with the NHL record-stetting 59-on Jan. 29 against the same Sharks. It was then he experienced why there have been so many episodes of the documentary series 'Oil Change'...

Video: Ben Scrivens doesn’t appreciate Oilers jerseys being thrown on the ice

I have my personal opinions about jersey tossing. Last season, during a Winnipeg Jets/ Nashville Predators game, some of my Thrashers friends made the trek northward with jerseys in tow. It was a statement piece on how terrible the old ownership group was, but all I saw on TV that day was a crest that I once cared about lying there in the middle of the ice at Bridgestone Arena. It...
