Most of this season has been focused on teams with "true" starting goaltenders, who have carried their team on their backs and into the playoffs.
Buffalo’s Ryan Miller, Phoenix’s Ilya Bryzgalov, and of course, New Jersey’s Martin Brodeur, are all shining examples of goalies that have taken on a bulk of the load in their respective cities and done an amazing job.
But there are teams that have relied on goaltending duos to get the job done.
Some pairings have done better than others. And a few of these teams may resort to a single goalie in the playoffs, but that doesn’t change the fact that two goalies got them to where they are now.
There are five major goalie duos that have been together for most of the season. Here they are, from worst to best.
