As promised here are the final goalie stats that take into account games played as a spare, separating those from a goalie’s
stats WHILE playing for his own team. (As an example poor Rick Kent’s previous stats included 2 games playing as a spare for lowly Purple Tr8rz while playing against the Big Bad Bully North Stars.)
Taking such things into account you will find The Race was a lot closer than you’d think!!!
NOTE: In the link below the “Grey” area lists all regular goalies names a second time. This reflects their results while playing as a spare. Predictably the results were not as good as while playing with respective teams.
I encourage you to scroll through ALL pages as goaltending records show records and GAA vs each team.
