Bingo. Besides things such as heat, and fog, the biggest thing would be water/ice getting on it and compromising vision.
Players don't shuffle around on their knees as goalies do, therefore, don't have to worry so much about getting sprayed.
Imagine a scramble in the crease, inevitably getting sprayed, and losing sight of the puck and have it jammed into the net.
