Patently absurd.

Assume two goalies in a cross-conference game stand on their heads for 64 minutes of what would otherwise be high-scoring hockey if not for the goalie heriocs... let's say 40 shots a side. Then, one goalie is faced with a last-minute-of-overtime rush and he realizes that his team is better off if he deliberately allows this goal and forfeits his shutout, then actually trying to stop it.
