Montreal's Ben Scrivens starting in goal

Montreal Canadiens netminder Ben Scrivens will be that starting goalie in Thursday's road game at the Los Angeles Kings.

What It Means:

In his last outing, Scrivens allowed three goals on 28 shots in the Canadiens' loss to the Colorado Avalanche on February 17. Scrivens has gone 3-5-0 with a 3.00 goals against average and .901 save percentage in nine starts with the Canadiens. He draws a tough matchup versus his former team in Los Angeles. The Kings have won four of their last five games, but they have averaged just 2.00 goals per game over that span.

On a 12-game night, we suggest you look elsewhere for your Thursday goalie, ranking Scrivens last among the 24 options. We project him to permit 3.13 goals on 29.15 shots with a 25 percent chance of getting the victory.
