Senior goalkeeper Pam Dreyer (Eagle River, AK) was named the ECAC Goaltender of the Week after recording 64 saves this past weekend against the number one and two teams in the country.
Dreyer made huge saves for the Bears in their 1-1 tie with top ranked Minnesota-Duluth, recording a season-high 39 stops. Despite the Bulldogs getting off 21 shots in the final and overtime periods, compared to the Bears three, Dreyer did not let the puck get past her once. With one minute remaining, the Bulldogs went on a breakaway but Dreyer gloved a rocket by Duluth's Hanne Sikio, ending regulation in a 1-1 deadlock. Dreyer insured the tie by making five stops in overtime.
In Brown's 5-3 loss to second ranked Minnesota on Saturday, Dreyer recorded 25 saves, making several spectacular stops for the Bears. In five games this season, Dreyer has 127 saves for a .920 save percentage with a 2-2-1 record and one shutout.
Dreyer recorded similar numbers at the 2002 Frozen Four, where Brown faced both Minnesota and Minnesota-Duluth. In the Bears 2-1 win over Minnesota in the semifinals, Dreyer made 35 saves. In the championship game versus Minnesota-Duluth, she recorded 28 stops in the 3-2 loss for a two-game total of 63 saves.
