There have been other times during the 44-year history of the franchise the Blues have had a strong one-two presence in goal.

Not many teams in league history can boast of a tandem like Glenn Hall and Jacques Plante. But the 1968-69 Blues had that dynamic duo in net, an arrangement that produced 13 shutouts.

Plante fashioned a microscopic 1.96 goals-against average, while Hall had a 2.17 GAA and eight of the whitewashes. The Blues rode the veteran pair to the Stanley Cup finals that season. Hall and Plante eventually rode their careers into the NHL Hall of Fame.

There have been other noteworthy time-shares, such as Curtis Joseph and Guy Hebert (1992-93), Grant Fuhr and Jon Casey (1996-97). This perspective is important when assessing the current Blues goaltending situation.
