It wasn't until the 60's and that was only because of televised games. The networks didn't want to wait until a goalie got stiched back up and returned to the game.

There are 6 players on the ice for both teams. 3 forwards 2 defensemen and 1 goalie. Hockey teams usually dress 22 players or have them on the bench so to speak 12 forwards, 6 defenseman and 2 goalies. The other goalie is the backup, in case the starting goalie plays badly

The best way to dress a hockey goalie is to start with putting on the breezers (pants). Next, their skates should go on. Then (the leg pad laces and) the leg pads. Next, chest protector and sweater. Then the helmet, and finally, the gloves. Dressing a goalie this way flows--one piece of equipment leads to the next. Because of this, it is the easiest and fastest known way to dress a goalie.Hope this helped

NHL teams may dress 18 skaters and 2 goalies for each game in the playoffs, just as in the regular season. Only difference between regular season and playoffs is that if a goalie gets hurt and a team as a 3rd goalie in the building and on the roster, he can suit up as the backup.
