    Patrick Roy pulls goalie with 10 mins left

    Someone somewhere with the under is damaging property.

    3-0, canucks score a goal, Roy yanks the goalie with 10 left, avs score a goal with under a min left, reviewed and upheld.

    5-1 final

    Love the move from a tactical standpoint.

    Better question who you got in a fight to the death:

    Jim Harbaugh vs Patrick Roy

    What percentage of games, when you're down three goals, do you win after pulling goalie?

    0% ?

    I don't see the point.

    Strategy you numbskulls. You put one in momentum swings. You have nothing to lose and everything to gain. 2 goal lead is the worst lead in hockey. 3-1 now you have momentum, players and coach playing it safe and you're unraveling. Now 3-2 you're second guessing and still just protecting. Now you're on your heels.

    Sure. But it seems that 99% of the time you're down 2 goals, hardest lead to protect in hockey, now it's 3-0. You leave the goalie on the bench and now it's 4-0. Only 2 mins left in the game and now you've still lost. Instead of 3-0 now you lose by 5 goals.

    I actually really like that he does that. It gives more of an opportunity to come back. Having more men on the ice is an "advantage" granted no goalie is s disadvantage. But end of day Roy thinks. If I lose 3-0 or 24-0 it's just one loss.
    Live betting with Avs down s couple could be s gold mine. Be curious what he averages when down 1,2,3 goals.

    it was a 3 goal lead with half the period left. Avs weren't coming back the way Miller was playing. Roy threw a dart and it failed.

    This guy is known for this kind of BS, screwed me on UNDERS many times. Lesson learned, Roy is a dbag.

    Like Deuce said....trying to score a goal quickly is the strategy here. You punch one in right away, and then the whole game can change.

    And Jay...this isn't NCAA football, pal. A loss is a loss. You don't get style points for losing by 3 as opposed to 5. No one gives a fukk how many you lost by.

    Deuce and Opie said exactly what I was going to say. I think Goal Differential comes in as a a tie-breaker somewhere way down the tie-breaker list - but I concur w/ others - I agree with it. You have likely already lost the game - why not try and do something different to win. There are models you can run that show the optimum time to pull a goalie given a score.

    Only reason people on here are upset is because it makes it harder to cap - which I agree it does - but if we take out the gambling side - strategically it wasn't a bad play. Didn't work out but likely wasn't going to work out either way. I hate coaches that give up when there is still time on the clock.

    I rarely bet anything worse than -130, but this bet after 2nd intermission looked very good
