Quick Hook in the Playoffs

I have a short blurb in the Wall Street Journal on both Jaroslav Halak and Roberto Luongo getting pulled in the second period on Monday.  Here are the quickest playoff hooks since 1994-95:


Goalie Date Team Vs Mins SH SV
Miikka Kiprusoff 4/13/2008 CGY SJ 3 5 2
Dan Cloutier 4/27/2002 VAN DET 5 3 1
Jim Carey 4/28/1996 BOS PIT 6 4 2
Jose Theodore 4/17/2010 WSH MTL 7 2 0
Arturs Irbe 5/11/1995 SJ CGY 7 5 1
Don Beaupre 5/9/1994 WSH @NYR 8 11 8
Dwayne Roloson 4/16/2003 MIN COL 9 4 2
Grant Fuhr 4/18/1996 STL @TOR 9 11 11
Jocelyn Thibault 4/28/1996 MTL NYR 10 9 5
Martin Gerber 4/26/2006 CAR MTL 14 13 10


Both Dan Cloutier and Arturs Irbe had three games where they didn't make it to the second period.  Jose Theodore had five games where he didn't make it through two periods.  Shockingly, Calgary came back to win that first game where Kipper was on the bench before most people even got to the Saddledome...

Update: several readers have wondered why Fuhr was pulled despite not allowing a goal:

"[Fuhr] Missed remainder of 1996 playoffs with torn ACL and MCL in right knee, suffered when he collided with Nick Kypreos during Game 2 of St. Louis' first-round series at Toronto on April 18, 1996. The injury required surgery on April 27, 1996."
