Semyon Varlamov set a New York Islanders record for the longest shutout streak in the Stanley Cup Playoffs before allowing three goals and getting pulled from Game 2 of the Eastern Conference Second Round against the Philadelphia Flyers at Scotiabank Arena in Toronto on Wednesday.
Varlamov reached 138:17 to pass the New York postseason record of 136:59, set by Billy Smith in 1980 across three games.
Varlamov allowed a goal to Kevin Hayes 1:57 into the first period to end the streak before Hayes scored again at 9:43 and Sean Couturier scored at 15:09 to give the Flyers a 3-0 lead.
Varlamov led this postseason in wins (eight), goals-against average (1.50) and save percentage (.941; minimum four games) after making 29 saves in Game 1, a 4-0 win. He became the first Islanders goalie to have consecutive shutouts in the playoffs; he made 21 saves in the series-clinching 4-0 win against the Washington Capitals in Game 5 of the Eastern Conference First Round.
The Islanders record for any shutout streak by a goalie is 178:29, set by Glenn Resch during the regular season from Dec. 2-12, 1975.
