Can't speak of the game you mention.

It did happen twice with the Blues.

Nov 13 1968
Glenn Hall, Robbie Irons & Jacques Plante

Glenn Hall was ejected and Robbie Irons replaced him until Jacwues Plante could get dressed and enter the game.

Dec 11 1968
Jacques Plante, Gary Edwards & Glenn Hall

Plante was struck in head on shot by Stan Mikita, Edwards was on the bench as the backup and replaced him. He finished the period and then Glenn Hall replaced him.


Of course that was the only game Irons would ever appear in the NHL and was the only game Edwards appeared in the NHL that year.

Bowman would routinely have Hall or Plante not dress when they weren't playing. He carried a 3rd backup that would dress and sit on the bench.

Someone can correct me if I am wrong but the NHL changed the rules shortly after this.
