Specifically because the question they addressed could be answered by anyone using the Retrosheet game logs, which go back to 1871 (not 1876!). Must be tough fading into irrelevance.

Nice to know that someone at Elias is reading us.

If so, F them. Baseball-reference provides the public with an awesome opportunity to search all of this info unlike Elias who hides the information in a cave like some sort of rich miser. "My stats! My stats! Mwa ha ha, only MY stats"

Even the Montreal Canadiens have only been shut out 3 times in their last 5 games. As a Philadelphia resident originally from the DC area, moving after the Capitals were established but when the Canadiens still shared their city with a baseball team, I am a Phillies fan and consider the Flyers to be my least favorite NHL team. I take it personally when the Phillies are shut out and when the Flyers shut someone else out.

One of the things I loved about the 1993 Phillies was that they never got swept in a series and never got shut out until after they clinched and were resting their regulars. Because the 1993 Phillies were famous for setting a National League record for most consecutive games not shut out (begun in the 1992 season), what a lot of folks don't realize is that the Toronto Blue Jays were actually shut out fewer times in the 1993 regular season than the Phillies were. The Phillies got shut out twice in late September when not playing all of their regulars, the only two times they were blanked that year. The Blue Jays were shut out only once before the postseason, in a late June game against Baltimore. Unlike the Phillies, they did get shut out at least once that postseason. Curt Schilling did it to them in the game between the 15-14 Toronto win and the Joe Carter walk-off game.
