Wasn't Brust the 5th goalie we used that year?

Yep. Garon, Cloutier, Burke, Brust, and Fukufuji in that order I think.

Funny side note to the article, Danny Taylor was a Kings call up the following year in 2007-2008 when the Kings used 7 goalies in Bernier, LaBarbera, Ersberg, Aubin, Cloutier, Taylor, and Quick....

Dark times.

Remembering this only makes me more thankful for Jonathan Quick.

He'd never really have got a chance if our goaltending wasn't such a trainwreck back then. Silver lining.

I hope he breaks the record, but that quote was the best part of the article for me

I believe he was number 4. If I remember right it was Cloutier/Garon, then Fukufuji, Brust and then Burke. I actually saw Brust play against the Flames in Calgary. As much as that season was a gongshow, I do like saying I saw him play since that makes an interesting footnote.

Interesting footnote, is I did the Kings Alberta swing that year and saw them play in Edmonton the night before. I got to see Alyn McCauley play his first game for the Kings that night. He's another that wasn't a King for long, he saw 10 games that season and that was it. Oddly, enough I also saw Ethan Moreau and Trent Hunter play live last year too.

Was it Fukufuji then Brust or the other way around? I vaguely remember Fuku replacing Brust and then playing a couple games before the Kings acquired Burke. I thought Brust was also the first one to get called up.

Hmm could be. I know Fukufuji was sent back down before Brust. I was slightly excited that I was going to get to see him play in Edmonton, but Garon was back.

At any rate, I sure don't miss the revolving door in goal. Turning on the game and wondering which new goalie would be in net was always interesting and never fun.

Brust appeared in games long before Fukufuji got his first call up. Brust made his debut in a 7-4 loss against the Coyotes. He came in relief for everyone's favorite goalie, Dan Cloutier, and gave up 4 goals on 28 shots. Cloutier gave up 3 goals on 5 shots.

Highlights from the game:

Here are the only two wins Brust got to enjoy as a King (and as an NHLer):

A few observations after watching those; man the Crawford's "system" is bad... So much just random running around, FROLOV! Still one of my favorite Kings to watch. Brust really doen't look too bad in those clips, not good enough to be a full time NHLer, but decent behind a terrible defense and bad system.

On a side note, Ersberg has gone on to have an excellent career.

He ended up getting the record by nearly 20:00. Then gave up 2 in 1:35. Got the win though. Good for you Barry.

That video is a hoax. The 2006-2008 Kings never won any games
