Skinny revision: Cujo also did it. #isles
Add Curtis Joseph to the list of goalies who played only in the shootout after not appearing in the game. With thanks to TSN, Joseph replaced Vesa Toskala for the shootout in the 10/22/2008 Toronto-Anaheim game. Ron Wilson's move didn't work -- the Ducks won the shootout in 2 rounds. (Unfortunately my original source doesn't note this game.)
