This was my thought when I got about half way through the first page of this thread.
Put your top line out with 6 men at the 3 minute mark (if possible, based on possession, face offs). Then either go from there with no goalie, or if there is a convenient time to do so, put your goalie back in around the 2 minute mark, and send your top 6 back out for the last minute.
Does anyone have just basic stats on scoring rates for 6-5 situations, both for and against? I would assume the team shooting on the empty net would have 15-25% scoring advantage, but I'd be interested to see actual numbers.
