Scrivens topped the previous record set by Phoenix’s Mike Smith, who stopped 54 shots in a victory over Columbus on April 3, 2012.

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.

RANGERS 2, ISLANDERS 1

NEW YORK • Daniel Carcillo scored the tiebreaking goal 4:36 into the third period, and the Rangers completed a two-game sweep of the outdoor series with a victory over the Islanders at frigid Yankee Stadium.

Building off their 7-3 win over New Jersey at the ballpark in the Bronx on Sunday, the Rangers took out another division rival under the lights in front of 50,027 fans. The temperature was 22 degrees when the first puck dropped at 7:45 p.m. with a single-digit wind-chill factor.

Benoit Pouliot also scored for the Rangers, who are 3-0 in their history while playing outside. Henrik Lundqvist stopped 30 shots while again adorning pinstriped pads in honor of the Yankees. The only goal he allowed was a late second-period tally to Brock Nelson.

BLACKHAWKS 5, CANUCKS 2

VANCOUVER, British Columbia • Jonathan Toews, Patrick Sharp and Brandon Saad each had a goal and an assist in the second period as the Blackhawks beat the Canucks.

Marian Hossa also scored in the second period for Chicago and Saad added an empty-netter late. Corey Crawford made 29 saves.

Chicago scored four times on five shots in a span of 7:31 in the second to rally from two goals down and snap a four-game winless streak (0-2-2).

The victory was Blackhawks coach Joel Quenneville’s 693rd, moving him past Dick Irvin into sole possession of third place on the all-time NHL coaching wins list.

Chris Higgins and Tom Sestito scored for Vancouver, which lost its second straight. Roberto Luongo stopped 36 shots.
