Who should the Edmonton Oilers target in goal?

The Edmonton Oilers’ goaltending last season was nothing short of a complete mess. Craig MacTavish and company banked that one of two career backup goalies – Viktor Fasth and Ben Scrivens – would be able to step it up and take on a starting role for the club. That plan failed miserably. Oilers goaltending posted a league worst 90.19 even strength save percentage and 2.91...

ST. LOUIS -- Few teams in the NHL can match the Blues when it comes to taking care of business against lesser opponents.

But a deep lineup...

Good luck charm? Scrivens dons mask for charity, gets Oilers' first W

The art of goalie-mask design has become increasingly that in recent years — art. But art, as they say, is subjective. And like in other forms, goalie-mask art can also carry a purpose. Just ask Ben Scrivens. The Edmonton Oilers goalie on Monday announced he would lend his support to the Schizophrenia Society of Alberta with a new program he calls "Ben's Netminders" — a program...

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...
