I've said this before...

How many times do I have to say this? Why does nobody ever learn? It is such a simple concept. Illustrated beautifully in game four of the Sabres Flyers series. NEVER PULL THE GOALIE!!!! In game three the sabres pulled the goalie and the flyers got an extra goal, and an additional 20 seconds or so that could have been used in trying to win the game could have been utilized. But in game four it was even worse, with 40 seconds or so left the goalie heads to the bench and the flyers go from being up by one to being up by two. A few seconds later Brier scored a goal for the Sabres! If you had only kept the keeper in the net it would have been tied and sent into overtime. But no that didn't happen. Why does the NHL lack common sense?
