NHL starting goalies: Ben Scrivens looks for 3rd consecutive shutout

Ben Scrivens will look to record his third consecutive shutout on Tuesday night when he backstops the Maple leafs against the Lightning. Jake Allen will be getting the start for the Blues and Ray Emery will attempt to help push the Blackhawks towards history.

There are eight games on tap in the NHL on Tuesday night, which will be headlined by the Western Conference matchup between the Chicago Blackhawks and Vancouver Canucks.

Chicago has started the regular season by going 15 games without a regulation loss. If the team can either defeat Vancouver or head to overtime, the Blackhawks will tie the 2006-07 Anaheim Ducks as the only teams in NHL history to go 16 games without a regulation loss to start a season.

In addition, the Toronto Maple Leafs and Ben Scrivens will look to extend their two-game shutout streak when they challenge the Tampa Bay Lightning and the San Jose Sharks will look to snap a seven-game winless streak against the St. Louis Blues.
