Has a team ever scored twice with the goalie pulled at the end of the game?
 
Couldn't decide on the best wording for the thread title but what I'm asking is, has a team ever been down by 2 goals at the end of the game and pulled their goalie for the extra attacker and scored 2 goals to tie?

I'm talking a "normal" situation, i.e. pulling your goalie within the last 2 minutes of the game, not an oddball situation like pulling the goalie at the start of the third period because its the last game of the season and you need the win to make the playoffs, or you need to score X amount of goals to come out ahead in a playoff tie-breaking situation, etc.

I feel like this happens somewhat often.

Yes, and in an NCAA national championship final no less:

Define often, because I doubt it happened more then 2 times last NHL season.

The game between the Flyers and Bruins was in February 1980 which was after the unbeaten streak was stopped at 35. There was a home unbeaten streak that continued at 26 games but was stopped the next game (first game post-All-Star Break). Phil Myre, the goalie, was pulled with about 1:15 remaining and the team down 3-1.

There were also five cases of teams scoring two extra-attacker goals in the last two minutes of the third period in one game this season, including a victory by the Minnesota Wild over the Vancouver Canucks on the next-to-last weekend of the regular season, which was truly wild. Minnesota actually surrendered an empty-net goal to provide Vancouver with what seemed to be a comfortable two-goal cushion - and then promptly scored twice in the final minute with the goalie on the bench.

Into the empty net? yeah, happens a lot.

against a goalie? it's as rare as hen's teeth.

I think it does happen from time to time because if it did not, then we would not see so many coaches pulling their goaltenders when they are down 3-1 with 90 seconds to go.

sure we would. if you're down by 2, why not try everything possible to tie it?

Yes, but nobody pulls their goaltender when they're down by 4 with 2 minutes to go because they know it is not possible to tie it but they do pull their goaltender when they're down by two meaning they believe that it is possible to tie when down by two. Hence, that's why I say teams probably do tie the game when down by two from time to time because if it did not happen, then coaches would not bother pulling their goaltender at the end of the game.

The most famous case I can think of would be a rather bittersweet memory for Pens fans. This would be 1993 in Game 7 against the Isles. The Pens were down 3-1 and with Mario serving an offsetting penalty they scored two goals. Tocchet first and then Francis on a lovely tip. Larry Murphy was such a key cog in that Pens offense and I think people who criticize him (and there are a lot on here) forget just how important he was to those teams. Murphy was the player who got the Penguins back in the game to overtime, which they lost of course.

That's the best case I can think of. How on earth that Pens team lost to that Islanders team is something that rattles me 20 years later almost in the same mold as the Miracle on Ice from 1980 in the manner of "How is that possible?"

Oh, let's throw in Jordan Eberle as another example. I can't remember if Canada had the goalie pulled in the gold medal game in the 2010 WJC but he scored two late goals and I am pretty sure he was pulled for at least one of them.

Buffalo did it against Montreal the season before last.

IIRC, neither of those goals were scored with the goalie pulled. I'm sure the first goal was with the goalie still in net, not totally sure about the second goal though.

Blues with a 2-1 lead with 5 minjtes to go, then the Bruins score 3. Blues get a pp and pull their goalie and score with 1:20 left. Then, with 1 second left on the clock David Backes ties it up. Blues eventually won in the shootout. One of the wildest games I've watched.

I haven't ever seen both teams with their goalies pulled at once so I'm not sure what you mean by it "happens a lot" :P

Wow, that must have been a doozy to watch!

Here are the highlights of that game .. Boston had two glorious opportunities with the net empty but couldn't score. I'm also really, really surprised that the tying goal stood, since that looked like a high stick (see 0:50-0:55 in the video).

Yeah, I remember watching that one and having that "no way, really!?" feeling. Sometimes a comeback seems Hollywood-scripted; that one seemed more like an episode of Punk'd.
