The freshman had not allowed a goal in more than 11 periods (and one overtime session). He entered the game needing 8:57 of scoreless hockey to establish the record ... The "old record" was held by Gerry Schultz (North Dakota), who recorded four consecutive shutouts (all against Michigan Tech) from January 14-29, 1954. Blaine Lacher (Lake Superior State) has the longest overall streak (including playoffs). Lacher had a scoreless string of 375:01 spanning seven games (four in the CCHA playoffs) from February 26-March 4, 1994.
