Has a team ever scored twice with the goalie pulled at the end of the game?

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.
Also, this article from earlier this year probably helps answer the OP:
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.
