With a 3-0 shutout Saturday in Game 1 of the Stanley Cup final, Florida Panthers goaltender Sergei Bobrovsky carefully followed in the footsteps of Toronto Maple Leafs’ Frank ‘Ulcers’ McCool.

But then Edmonton Oilers defenseman Mattias Ekholm defeated Bobrovsky at 11:17 a.m. Monday in the first period of Game 2, a 4-1 win for the Panthers that all but ended McCool’s 79-year-old Stanley Cup Final survival record was guaranteed.

The three straight shutouts in the Finals series, recorded by McCool in 1945, are all but out of reach. While Florida led this year’s Finals 2-0, the Oilers’ Stuart Skinner or Calvin Pickard could only tie the score with three straight shutouts between Thursday’s Game 3 (8 p.m. ET; ABC, ESPN+, CBC, TVAS, SN) and the end of the series.

McCool, nicknamed “Ulcers” because of a stomach ailment that plagued him until his final days, appears in the Stanley Cup Final record book three times for his brilliant Maple Leafs singles run:

Most consecutive shutouts: three, April 6-12, 1945, against the Detroit Red Wings;

Longest shutout streak: 188:35, April 6-14, 1945;

Most shutouts: three, in the 1945 seven-game series, tied with Clint Benedict of the 1926 Montreal Maroons (in four games against the Western Hockey League’s Victoria Cougars); and Martin Brodeur of the 2003 New Jersey Devils (in seven games against the Mighty Ducks of Anaheim).
