It's not like PS's have >50% success rate. It's like the "and 1" in basketball. You get fouled and miss the shot, you get 2 free throws. You get fouled and make the shot, you get one free throw.
A couple free throws is far less significant than a hockey goal. So I don't think that would ever catch on.
