    • Melker Karlsson nets two assists in 4-3 win

    • Antti Niemi allows three to Oil, still wins
      Antti Niemi did not have his best night, but stopping 25-28 shots the Oilers sent his way was good enough for the 4-3 victory.

      Advice: Niemi should have stopped each goal as none were through screens, tips, or via lasers. Quite simply, he didn't have a good game against a team who had scored three or more goals just twice in their previous 15 games. Just once in their previous nine. But a win is a win, as they say.

    • Ben Scrivens allows four in loss to Sharks
      Ben Scrivens did not have a good night, stopping just 26-30 shots in the 4-3 loss to San Jose on Thursday night.

      Advice: At some point you want to be forgiving because he's playing behind Edmonton's idea of defense, but he could have stopped each goal. It wouldn't be a stretch to say that Scrivens is the worst starting goalie in hockey right now. Rotoworld.com
