Intentionally yes, there is the rule.

The question is, how do you judge intent vs incompetent goaltenders.

Does a push off the post to get to the other side form intent?

How about a two pad slide, not that any of the goaltenders do that anymore, but what about that?

How about misjudging the distance between the top of the crease and the goalline while following the puck into the corner,

It's almost impossible to judge intent unless you see the goaltender turn around and physically push the net off...
