NHL rules require both teams to keep two goalies available for play. Teams keep a local beer-league player on hand to suit up and sit on the bench should one of their goalies be unavailable - and if that other goalie goes down, they get on the ice and play. The only time this has happened recently was for less than eight seconds in a 1-3 losing game with the Hurricanes on New Year's Eve, 2016, but that changed tonight when 36-year-old rec-league goalie Scott Foster suited up for the Chicago Blackhawks and went 7 for 7 against a playoffs-bound Winnipeg Jets.
