Thanks to SPHL VP Doug Price for the following info and my pal Dana Barker for getting the ball rolling on getting this exciting info:
Columbus Cottonmouths goaltender Andrew Loewen shattered the league record for consecutive shutout minutes. Andrew's tally right now is 191:07 (and counting) over the last four games. Three shutouts (@60 minutes each) plus 11:07 at the tail end of the game vs the Mississippi Surge on Feb. 27.
The previous record was held by the Surge's Dan Earles during the 2010-2011 season. Earles' shutout string (166.17) also spanned four games. Others on this impressive list are: Mark Cairns, Macon, 2004-2005 (155:42), including two shutouts of the Snakes...yikes; Riley Gill, Louisiana, 2012-2013 (154:49) and Bill Zaniboni, MSS, 2009-2010 (151:52).
Kudos to Andrew and thanks again to Doug and Dana.
Never miss a local story.
