IIRC, it looked that way statistically, however that did not take into account the fact that they pull the goalie with the optimal amount of time their best scoring line can be out there, and any longer had a drastically reduced goal chance and a drastically increased goal against chance due to there needing to be a line change, and the 2nd line being less efficient at getting a goal.
