Also consider that the fatigue effect on the defending team will probably be much greater than on the attacking team.
not necessarily, the attacking team has to play with a sense of urgency (meaning they have to make it to every single lose puck before the other team does). the attacking team, there only job literally in a pulled goalie situation is just don't get scored on. if it could possibly work, the defensive team would and could just stand 5+ the goalie around the net and make sure no shots make it passed the goal line.
