I need some help on a scoring matter and can't find a reference in the rules section of NHL.com. What is the rule when more than one goalie is used in a shutout? This recently happened with the Sharks and neither goalie was awarded the shutout (although Nabokov got the win). I don't disagree with the ruling, but need validation for rotisserie scoring purposes. Thanks in advance for any help that can be provided.
I'm pretty sure you need to *make every save* in order to be credited with a shutout. A goalie could be pulled for an extra attacker on a delayed penalty call without jeopardizing his shutout.
What about....game is tied 0-0 in the third late in the season. One team needs the two points to make the playoffs, so they pull their goalie. Other team scores an empty-net goal. Does the goalie still get a shutout? He made every save possible. :p
