Even in the San Jose game, even though the Sharks got almost 60shots through, which on paper looks bad, but remember what was happening on the ice???? Everyone bought in clearing rebounds, blocking shots, doing everything they could to help out Scrivens.
they have looked like they are starting to buy-in. and they finally look like an NHL team.

Anybody here can go look at that TSN shot tracker and see the massive difference in shot locations between the Oilers and their competition and understand that any goalie would be getting lit up.

You think Scrivens can keep saving 35-45 shots a night? The law of averages will set it just like it did for Bryz.
Will he be letting in a dump-in from outside the blue line about every 5th game? will he let in an off-balance wrister from the point, every 2nd game? Will every single tip-in, deflection, screen and knuckler finds its way in and be an excuse? Will Scrivens be rated lower than the 60th goalie in the NHL? To say that the worst goaltending anyone can remember had no bearing on the team's mental state and, ergo, record is crazy.
