Women's ice hockey: Shutout streaks extended, records broken in this week's by the numbers
Shutouts, Streaks and rankings, oh my. The women’s hockey season continues to roll along with records being broken and shutout streaks being extended.
1 – Teams that have played that have not allowed a goal yet this season. Colgate goaltender Liz Auby posted back-to-back shutouts to start this season and has an overall three-game shutout streak dating back to last season, going 200:09 without allowing a goal. It was the first time Colgate began a season with consecutive shutouts to open a season.
1 - Number of opponents Holy Cross will face from Women’s Hockey East this season before the Crusaders join the league in 2018-19. Holy Cross and New Hampshire will face off this weekend.
2 - Members of the fabled “Miracle on Ice” 1980 U.S. Olympic hockey team that will be on opposing benches this weekend in Mankato, Minn., as gold medal-winning teammates John Harrington (Minnesota State head coach) and Mark Johnson (Wisconsin head coach) square off when the Mavericks host the top-ranked Badgers.
3 - NCAA-leading shutout total for Wisconsin sophomore goaltender Kristen Campbell. The transfer from North Dakota has a clean sheet in half of her first six starts, while she is second nationally with a 0.67 GAA and fifth with a .963 save percentage.
4 - Goals scored by Vermont’s Eve-Audrey Picard to set a single-game record for the Catamounts in a 7-0 victory over Union this past Tuesday. The four tallies were the most of any Vermont skater since the program began varsity competition and the win ran Vermont’s streak to 21-straight victories over the Dutchwomen.
4 - Consecutive seasons that Wisconsin has started undefeated in its first six games, a record the Badgers carry into this weekend’s series at Minnesota State. UW’s 2014-15 team lost in its seventh game, the 2015-16 squad set a program record by winning its first 18 contests and the 2016-17 edition tied its fourth game but remained undefeated through 12 contests (11-0-1).
4 - Providence has averaged four goals per game through the first four games. The team is currently tied for first in the nation in scoring offense as they play Syracuse this weekend who has allowed more than four goals in two of its first four games this season.
5 - NCAA-leading goal total for Ohio State freshman Tatum Skaggs, who has lit the lamp in three of her first four collegiate games, including a pair of multi-goal efforts.
7 - Number of consecutive Women’s Hockey East opponents Quinnipiac will face to start the 2017-18 season. To date, the Bobcats are 2-2-0 after splitting weekends at Maine and against Providence. Vermont and Boston College remain on the schedule.
