Sharks get shut out by Scrivens

EDMONTON — Ben Scrivens set an NHL record for saves in a regular-season shutout with 59 in a spectacular performance that helped the Edmonton Oilers beat the San Jose Sharks, 3-0, on Wednesday.

Scrivens topped the previous mark set by Phoenix’s Mike Smith, who stopped 54 shots in a victory over Columbus on April 3, 2012.

The Sharks matched the record for shots against the Oilers, accomplished by the New York Rangers in a 4-3 loss in 1993. This time, the recently acquired Scrivens turned away all 59 as Edmonton won its third straight.

Justin Schultz, Jordan Eberle and Taylor Hall scored for Edmonton.

Obtained from Los Angeles in a trade Jan. 15, Scrivens got in front of point-blank shots, close-in deflections, goalmouth scrambles and rebounds his defensemen failed to cover.

Scrivens stopped 20 shots in the first, 22 in the second and 17 in the third.

Three of his best stops in the first period came on a San Jose power play when he got a pad on Dan Boyle’s slap shot from the hash marks, Jason Demers’ backhand on a rebound and Patrick Marleau’s deflection from about five feet in front.

Defenseman Justin Schultz put the Oilers in front with a long shot at 10:51 of the first. His harmless looking wrist shot hit a player in front and eluded the grasp of San Jose goaltender Antti Niemi.

The Sharks rang two shots off the goalpost in the second and forced Scrivens to be even better than he was in the first period.

Scrivens flashed his glove to make two sparkling stops off Bracken Kearns and Demers, seconds apart early in the period. He got a well-deserved standing ovation late in the period after stopping Marleau twice — once on a quick breakaway — and then making his 41st and 42nd saves on a goalmouth scramble. He got several standing ovations in the third.

The Sharks, whose previous high for shots on goal was 57, continued their domination in the third period but couldn’t find a way to put the puck in the net.

Hall scored six minutes into the period to finish off a 2-on-1 break with Eberle and then fed Eberle for the third goal with just over a minute remaining. Hall finished with three points.
