    Mark Guggenberger earned his third straight shutout Friday.

    Mark Guggenberger earned his third straight shutout Friday night in the Brahmas' 1-0 win over the Rio Grande Valley Killer Bees, setting a Central Hockey League season high in individual consecutive scoreless minutes and nearing the CHL all-time record in the same category.

    Guggenberger (14-4-3) is the first goalie in Brahmas' history to record three consecutive shutouts.

    The rookie goaltender saved all 25 shots fired by the Bees, extending his consecutive scoreless minutes streak to 215:16.

    Only three players in the history of the CHL have posted a longer streak, with John DeCaro topping the list with 222:41 for the Bossier-Shreveport Mudbugs in 2007-08. Guggenberger, who leads the CHL with a 1.92 goals against average and .928 save percentage, needs only 7:25 more without allowing a goal to reach the all-time mark.

    Jacques Perreault scored the lone goal of the game, beating Bees' netminder Wylie Rogers with a top-shelf wrister off a crossing dish from Chad Woollard at the 6:13 mark of the second period. The goal was Perreault's fifth of the season and second in three games.
