(CBC)   How terrible is the Edmonton Oilers defence? Well, they allowed enough shots for their new goalie to set an NHL shutout record   (cbc.ca) divider line 22

I think the census with the other Oiler faithful that I know is that we're all still drunk and not entirely convinced this actually happened.

For a moment, I personally thought there was a crack in time and I saw a parallel dimension. Then again, I have been watching a lot of Doctor Who ...

So both the Flames and the Oilers have a season-high 3 game winning streak?

It's not the polar vortex causing all that snow in Atlanta, it's hell freezing over.

I'd like to say it's not as bad as it sounds but so many of those 59 shots were good chances that's it's probably worse!

Hopefully the stars will align once more and the once mighty Oil can draft Ekblad...because right now we've got the worst D in the league.

Was an amazing performance to behold. Too bad we can't play defence for anything. With Boston looming on saturday, things don't get any easier.

Also of note, the Oilers blocked 41 shots...so the Sharks sent 100 pucks at the Oiler net.

Wow.

Not to get too nitpicky but it was a franchise record, not an NHL record.

Total saves was the franchise record. "Saves in a shutout" is an NHL record (post expansion).

It's the most saves in a shutout in a regulation game.  Hasek had 70 in a 4 OT game, and some places are calling it an expansion era record, so maybe someone from way back had more.

It was a Sharks franchise record for shots (59!) in a game, but it was an NHL record for saves in a shutout.

Anyways, that game was just bananas - the Sharks had over 100(!!) shot attempts and 80(!!!) Fenwicks.  I'm not sure they could have played a better game, Scrivens was just a freaking force-field.  Every good goalie will have some amazing saves in a game, but Scrivens was just making save after save on high-quality chances.

I'm not even mad.  Heck, I'm happy LA traded this guy so the Sharks don't have to see him in the playoffs.

The NHL didn't start recording shots until the 1967 expansion, so what happened before then is pure guessing.

Yeah, you'll get to see Quick. You sure you wanna see playoff mode Quick?

The used a rudimentary formula that measured goalie facial indentations, shattered teeth and total blood loss.

That was a bad series for Quick but the team was spend after the first two rounds against Blues and Sharks. Not making excuses, though as the Blackhawks were clearly the better team.

But this season the Blackhawks will have to get out of the central first before facing the Pacific so they'll probably face the Blues first.

Wow, and I thought the Leafs were bad with allowing shots.

/maybe that's how Scrivens got good

Oh Hai!

Bruins/Nordiques March 21st 1991 70 shots stopped.  3-3 Tie.  Yes I know not a shutout but the Diques were bad for a long long time.

Two things I remember from that game:

1 - I actually started Tugnutt in fantasy that week because of injuries and he carried me with over 200!!! saves in 4 games.
2 - The Bruins, led by Ray Bourque, skated by him and all tapped his pads after the performance.

Well, LGR. Good job, Scrivens.

Yeah just re-read the article, don't know how I missed that part.  My bad, congrats Ben.
