14 Shots On Goal By Booth, No Goals

from Harvey Fialkov of the Sun Sentinel,

After one of David Booth’s career-high 14 shots on goal knocked off the mask of Bruins goalie Tuukka Rask, the backup netminder flashed a grin as if to say, “Not tonight.”

It wasn’t Booth’s night or the Panthers’ in Thursday’s 4-0 loss to the Bruins at TD Garden, where the final score belied a taut struggle between two teams coming off road wins the night before.

Former Panther Nathan Horton assisted on all three of linemate Milan Lucic’s goals as Florida (8-9) failed in its bid to go over .500 for the first time this season.

“[Horton’s] line was the difference in the game,’’ said Booth, who had hit his previous high of nine shots twice this season. “It was really a 1-0 game all the way through. I think we outshot them [41-40]. I was going to keep shooting. It’ll go in eventually.’‘

Anyone know what the record is for shots on goal by one player in a game?

According to this random site: http://thelongestlistofthelongeststuffatthelongestdomainnameatlonglast.com/most112.html

They say the answer is 19, by Ray Bourque, March 21, 1991, Boston against Quebec.

And apparently, on January 27,1955, Gordie Howe had an unofficial 19 shots as well, but they weren’t tracking shots on goal that far back so I’m assuming they can’t make that “official”.
