What's the longest...

Amount of time a goalie has shut out opposing teams?

I recall a story about this a few years ago and am trying to remember the goalie who it was about. Had shut out 3 games in a row or something similar.

Anybody know?

I think its Brian Boucher when he played for Phoenix, but I could be wrong. I'm too lazy to go look it up.

Yep, Brian Boucher with Phoenix back in 2003-04. He had 5 shutouts in a row. Amazingly, the last 4 were all on the road.

Yep. It was over the New Year's holidays. 5 shutouts is just unheard of, especially considering it was Boucher

Luongo did that, but it isn't the longest streak.

For the season, after the 5th shutout it was 1.63gaa, 0.947sv%. If you include the game after (1-1 tie, 21 shots against), it was 1.58gaa, 0.9.47sv%.

Yeah, I hadn't remembered what time of the year it was, but the streak will always be in my head. His last shutout was against the Wild. Not a good reminder.

His GAA would have been about 1.60, and his save % was .9438 after the 5th shutout. That was his 13 game overall. The funny thing is that Boucher didn't have another shutout before or after that streak. It was 5 in a row right in the middle of 39 games played. His ending totals were 2.74 and .906. He dropped off after the streak.

Thanks.

5 shutouts in a row is just crazy. I don't think it will be beat anytime soon.

On January 7, 2004, Brian became the first National Hockey League goaltender in nearly fifty-five years to record four consecutive shutouts, making twenty-seven saves in the Phoenix Coyotes' 3-0 victory over the Washington Capitals at the MCI Center. "It's pretty unbelievable," Boucher said after the game. "Hopefully, I can ride it through until Friday."

On January 9, 2004, with a twenty-one save effort against the Minnesota Wild at the Xcel Energy Center, Brian broke Bill Durnan's modern National Hockey League record for consecutive shutouts with a 2-0 victory. Durnan's consecutive shutout streak was broken early in the third period - "I did look up at the clock," said Boucher. "Once I saw it was, I think, four minutes into the third, I knew I could breathe easy as far as the streak is concerned. That is probably the first time I really was counting down. I hate to do that, but I don't know if anyone could ignore it. I'm happy that was over and then we could focus on just winning the game." Richard Park had four of Minnesota's shots, including a one-timer midway through the second period that ricocheted off Boucher's right leg after a perfect setup pass from Sergei Zholtok. Replays showed Park turning around, wide-eyed in disbelief that his shot was denied. "That's a goal 9.9 out of 10 times," Park said. "I got the shot off I wanted, but it's remarkable the swagger he's got in the net, the confidence."

On January 11, 2004, the streak finally ended for Boucher. At 6:16 of the first period, in Phoenix's home game against the Atlanta Thrashers, Randy Robitaille fired a slap shot from the blue line which glanced off the chest of Phoenix defenseman David Tanabe and into the net. "I don't think it would have hit the net if it didn't hit me," Tanabe said. "It if wasn't for that bounce, he could have had another shutout." With the deflection, Boucher had no time to react and block the shot. "A fluky goal," he said. "That's how easily a goal can go in. The fact that it didn't happen for five-plus games is pretty amazing."

After the score, the sold-out crowd at the Coyotes' new Glendale Arena stood and cheered Boucher's record. Play stopped and the Phoenix bench emptied as the players congratulated the goalie while the big screen showed highlights of the streak. In the end, Boucher's streak lasted for 332 minutes, 1 second, including 146 consecutive saves. The game resulted in a 1-1 tie, with Boucher making twenty saves.

12/22/03: T (64m42s, 26/29) 3-3 OT tie at Nashville (Vokoun).
12/31/03: W (59m55s, 21/21) 4-0 victory vs. Los Angeles (Hnilicka).
01/02/04: W (60m, 35/35) 6-0 victory at Dallas (Tugnutt, Turco).
01/04/04: W (59m55s, 26/26) 3-0 victory at Carolina (Storr).
01/07/04: W (60m, 27/27) 3-0 victory at Washington (Kolzig).
01/09/04: W (60m, 21/21) 2-0 victory at Minnesota (Roloson).
01/11/04: T (65m, 20/21) 1-1 OT tie vs. Atlanta (Dafoe).

I would have been here sooner if the thread title was in any way helpful.

Thanks for the story Doctor No.

And yes, I was asking because Thomas had gotten two in a row, but I didn't think he was going to beat it. Just got me thinking!
