Stat of the Day (Saves)

I saw this one in my issue of Sports Illustrated this week and had to look it up on the Internet to be sure it was true. It was true, and it is amazing.

On Jan. 23, Division III Northland College played Adrian College in hockey. Adrian won 4-0. Seems like an ordinary game on the surface. The spectacular part came from Northland goalie Daniel McIntosh. How can the losing goalie of a 4-0 game be spectacular you ask? That’s easy. McIntosh made 95 saves. 95! Northland was outshot 99 to 11 by Adrian and wasn’t nearly blown out. One of the four goals was on a power play, which is always tough on a goalie.

McIntosh made 39 saves in the first period, 29 in the second and 27 in the third. Just crazy. And if you don’t believe it at first, here is a link to the game’s box score.
