Basically the same thing, but hockey pants have the pads inside of them when the girdle is skin tight and is just the pads. Girdles normally go under the long pants that some skaters wear when they play roller hockey. Overall pretty similar and both used to protect your high thigh area's.

It depends on which kind of hockey your playing. If you are playing Ice Hockey, you can use either. I use Bauer One 95s, and I recommend them.

In hockey can you put pant shells on regular hockey pants or do you have to have certain pants?

Shells are cosmetic covers for your existing hockey pants. They are typically used by teams that want to have a consistent look to their uniforms when player have a wide variety of styles and colors of their own pants. They have no padding of their own. The shell is simply pulled on (or left on) over the top of your regular hockey pants. They will have a belt which can be cinched at the waist to keep the pants up. The shell will not cover the kidney protectors on the top of the pants that rise above the waist, but these are covered by the hockey sweater anyway.
