Phoenix Rising and Stopping Goals

What an amazing turn around it has been for Phoenix Coyotes goaltender, Brian Boucher. Tonight, he added his name to the legacy of dominant Western Conference goaltenders as his streak of shut-out hockey ended against the Thrashers.

Boucher has already made history by setting a NHL record of 5 consecutive shut out games. It totals his time between the pipes 322 minutes and 1 second without a goal being scored.

The Coyotes fans hope that this could resurrect the franchise who were struggling to win at home all season long. Boucher, a castoff from Philadelphia, was playing himself into oblivion while watching goaltender Sean Burke get most of the workload this season.
