Shutout Streak Record

Does anyone know what it is? Brian Boucher has now extended it to 245 minutes and counting (with another period to play against Washington). Does anyone know what the record is?

Forget it, I found it.

461 minutes, 29 seconds-Alex Connell, 1927-28
343 minutes, 5 seconds-George Hainsworth, 1928-29
324 minutes, 40 seconds-Roy Worters, 1930-31
309 minutes, 29 seconds-Bill Dunham, 1948-49

He has a while to go yet.

They might count it as the highest streak in the modern era.

The record was made when players could only pass the puck back after it had crossed the blueline, so I think if he sets some kind of mark they would count it as a modern-day record.

Yeah, a lot of those records from way back then are not really used anymore for comparison sake due to rule changes. It would be interesting to see what the modern day record is...Boucher is a few minutes away from his fourth straight shutout!

He shut out the Caps tonight. That's the record, right?

If so, big congrats to Boucher.

Does this make Burke very expendable?

Well to beat the all time record, he has to have almost 3 more shut outs.

If their are any fans booing at XCel Energy Center, they might be rooting for Phoenix.

He's at 265 minutes now and the modern day record is Bill Durnan's mark. So he needs 45 minutes more of shutout hockey to take the record. That would be 5 straight games of SO hockey.

yeah, I also read that Durnan holds the modern day record. he basically needs another SO to break the record...that's going to be real tuff. I see someone scoring on him in the first 5 minutes of the next game but I hope I'm wrong.
being an ex-Flyers player, I would like to see Boucher do it.

Boucher is playing out of his mind. Phoenix as a whole is pretty solid.

Congrats to Boosh. That's awesome. I remember last year being super-excited when Biron did 3 in a row.. and now Boosh has done 4.. that's great.

Great for him and the Yotes. I always liked him. I want him to break the record.. he's close enough.. he might as well! Good luck!

Maybe a tad more expendable. Boucher's riding a hot streak right now. This doesn't make him the franchise though, not like Sean Burke was(and is? that's arguable). Perhaps closer to the March deadline, if Boucher keeps up the good play, Burke could be traded. Rangers might be interested if they can't land Khabibulin and Dunham is still struggling at that time.

Don't forget LA. It's becoming pretty obvious that Huet is not ready and Cechmanek reamins maddeningly inconsistent. They could be in the market as well. And the Avs still need a safety net under Aebischer. On the other hand, no one seems to be panicking yet as Tugnutt cleared waivers a few days ago with not even a sniff.

The Question is: Does he have a shot at making/starting for the US World Cup entry??

With Cechmanek's track record, it'd take one helluva gambling GM to pick him up. And if he does get picked up, he won't be a backup. Same with Burke. Both will be #1s wherever they go cuz they'd be one helluva expensive backup(see Ron Tugnutt...incidentally, a big reason why he wasn't picked up off waivers. Who wants a backup making $3 million when teams are watching themselves fiscally?). If Tugnutt weren't making so much, I'd bet anything Lacroix would've picked him up to be the "veteran calming influence" for Aebischer. With Tellqvist playing so well for the baby Leafs, plus filling in admirably as Belfour's understudy when Kidd was injured, is Kidd on the market? If so, Lacroix interested?

Statistically, he has been the best goaltender in the game over the past three and one-half seasons. Over the goaltenders that have played all of the past three seasons (including Patrick Roy, not including Hasek), he has the best average GAA and SV%.

I understand the sentiment, though, as he sure doesn't give me the warm-fuzzies, either. He's darn uncomfortable to watch, and not the security blanket one looks for in the playoffs. I'll never equate that flailing guy to a five-time Czech League title holder.
