Players of the week: You can't score on Colgate's Liz Auby

  Colgate's Liz Auby went on a 300-minute shutout streak.

There's been plenty to marvel at in the first couple weeks of the still-young hockey season, but a few performances have been the best of the best. 

NCAA.com highlights those above-and-beyond performers in this week's edition of our "Three Stars" of the week. Here is the trio of standout performers from this past week in the hockey world:

1.) Kassidy Sauve, Ohio State

  Sauvé made a combined 60 saves in the series, including a 34-stop performance in Saturday’s 3-1 win.

The junior goalie led the Buckeyes to a sweep of fifth-ranked Minnesota Duluth. On Friday, the Whitby, Ontario native made 35 saves in posting a 2-0 shutout of the Bulldogs. On Saturday, she made another 31 saves as the Buckeyes pulled out a 4-3 victory. On the season, Sauve is 5-0-1 with a 1.81 goals-against average and a .937 save percentage.

2.) Liz Auby, Colgate

  Auby leads the nation with a sparkling 0.50 goals against average.

The Stoughton, Wisconsin native, backstopped the Raiders’ weekend sweep of No. 6 Northeastern. On Friday, the sophomore goalie made 28 saves to pick up yet another shutout, her third straight to start the season and fourth straight overall in the 3-0 victory against the Huskies. With a goal allowed Saturday, her shutout streak officially lasted for 308:44 and four games to set program records, but she still finished with a 5-2 victory.  Auby leads the nation with a 0.50 GAA, .971 save percentage and is tied for first with three shutouts.

3.) Sydney Baldwin, Minnesota

  Baldwin notched four points over the weekend, including Saturday's winner.

Baldwin led the Gophers to a WCHA road sweep at Bemidji State, pacing all NCAA blue-liners with three assists and four points last weekend. The senior from Minnetonka, Minnesota factored in both game-winning goals, assisting on Friday’s deciding marker before scoring 1:04 into overtime Saturday to give Minnesota a 4-3 win and sweep. Baldwin logged multi-point efforts in both games, with two assists Friday, and one goal and one helper on Saturday. She also contributed defensively with eight blocked shots, second-most in the WCHA.
