Schroeder has yet to allow more than two goals in a single game this season, highlighted by a 38-save shutout at UConn on Oct. 18 to give BU a 1-0 victory. Only three of the six goals she has allowed this year have been at even strength. Schroeder has been particularly strong in the third period, stopping 47 of the 48 shots she has faced in the final frame for a .979 save percentage, which ranks second in the country among goalies who have played at least three games.
