Finding perfection in hockey is difficult, but American International may have done it this weekend.
The Yellow Jackets swept defending Atlantic Hockey champion Air Force out of MassMutual Center in resounding fashion, earning 5-0 and 4-0 wins for their first back-to-back shutouts since February of 2013. AIC, which has already won consecutive games twice this season, enters Thanksgiving with wins in three of their last five games and a 5-4-1 league record.
Junior Zackarias Skog was winless in four decisions this season and had just one career shutout entering the weekend, but the native of Sweden made 20 saves in each game to lift AIC to its first season series win over the Falcons in five years. He was the only Division 1 goaltender to post multiple shutouts over the last week of play.
While the goaltender steals most of the headlines headlines in a two-game shutout, the Yellow Jackets also enjoyed a balanced weekend on the front end as six players scored and 14 recorded points in the series.
