There was no such thing as back-up goaltenders back when Lester Patrick was the coach. The goalie got hurt in the game (this was during the Finals) and Lester Patrick played the rest of the game. Gave up one goal in regulation and the Rangers won it in overtime, going on to win their second Stanley Cup.

Lester Patrick is one of the builders of hockey. It's a shame that the division the Rangers play in is no longer named for him.
