Best Goalie De­but

Bos­ton net­min­der ‘Tiny’ Thomp­son went into Pitts­burgh to face the Pi­rates and not only earned a shutout in a 1-0 over­time win but also played 70 min­utes in an era when 10 min­utes of OT was the stan­dard. He is the only goalie to win his de­but game, via shutout, hav­ing played as many as 70 min­utes. In all, only nine goalies played 70 min­utes to start their ca­reer.
