Ben Scrivens made 59 saves in a spectacular performance that helped the Edmonton Oilers beat the San Jose Sharks 3-0 Wednesday night.

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.
