Darren Elliot wrote a great article about the recent shutout streak by Phoenix goalie Brian Boucher on Sports Illustrated.
Here are two interesting items from the article:
- "The streak gave his team something to rally around -- a galvanizing goal (ahem, pardon the wordplay) to bring the Coyotes' season into focus."
- As Minnesota Wild coach Jacques Lemaire said after Boucher recorded his fifth successive shutout against his team, "The streak is a testament to how well the Coyotes are playing as a team. The goalie is lucky."
What do you think? Individual or team? What about some of your accomplishments - were they a result of individual efforts or made possible because you were part of a team?
