Hall, Glenn Plante, Jacques St. Louis Blues 1968-69
JACQUES PLANTE and GLENN HALL combined to produce the lowest goals-against average in 13 years. The Blues netminders combined for a goals-against average of 2.07 as St. Louis captured the West Division title and marched to the Stanley Cup Finals. HALL, who was also named an NHL's First Team All-Star, produced a record of 19-12-8, a league-high eight shutouts and a goals-against average of 2.17 - his lowest since his rookie year in 1956. PLANTE'S record of 18-12-6 was equally as impressive, with five shutouts and a league-best goals-against average of 1.96, his lowest since 1956. This was HALL'S third VEZINA TROPHY and PLANTE'S seventh, the latter surpassing Bill Durnan's VEZINA record of six career wins. The Rangers' Ed Giacomin was the trophy's runner-up.
