They are in any other case (get checked to the ice by one *cough* McCreary *cough* and you're SOL) but when the puck gets directed into the net off them, that's the only exception (I guess).

Caps had a goal against waved off a few years ago because of this (I think it was against the Sabres but not 100% on that). Was dumped around the boards, Johnny went out to play it but it deflected toward the net and in off the linesman.
