    Question about hockey lol....

    Ok, i see highlights all the time but when a team is down and they leave the goalie to bring an extra skater on, has a team EVER won doing that? It always seems like it backfires and an empty net goal always scores. (I know ZERO about hockey but very curious)

    Yea, it's not all that unusual. Well at least that the team pulling the goalie ties up the game and sends it to OT. I'd actually like to find statistics on that.

    Down a goal with under 2 minutes left you have nothing to lose. You need a goal and it makes no difference(except in certain seeding tiebreakers) if you give one up.

    Yes, it happens. Not often, but it does happen.

    See the NCAA championship last night? Boston U trailed Miami 3 -1 in the last minute. Pulled their goalie and scored twice to tie! Boston U won in OT. incredible game.
