COL G's Shutout Streak Ends At 250:23


Recommended Posts

An historic streak has come to an end. For 250 minutes and 23 seconds, Cologne netminder COL G had not given up a goal but then it finally happened against the HC Davos Dynamo. The Cologne Express still ended up winning the game 5-1 in rather dominant fashion, but at 9:36 of the second period it was rookie Gifford Shock who deflected a Kurtis Hunter shot for the lone Davos goal, the goal that snapped one of the most impressive shutout streaks in recent history. Before that goal, COL G had racked up three shutouts in a row, two against the Dynamo this season and one against Seattle last year. He had also added another period in the recent game against Davos and a little more than two periods against the Bears late in Season 40, which was the last game before the streak where he had given up a goal when Lauris Prikulis beat him at 19:13 in period one. 250 minutes, or in other words more than four games without giving up a goal isn't just a franchise record, it also makes the decision of the Express coaching staff to give Blaine Olynick the majority of the starts even more questionable.
