A shootout goalie swap
Tonight's Sabres-Rangers game featured something we have yet to see in the NHL — a goaltender swap during the shootout. After allowing the first goal by Martin Straka, Mika Noronen was pulled by Buffalo and replaced by Martin Biron.
Buffalo ended up losing the shootout 3-2, but it was a little odd seeing the swap happen. The rules stipulate that Noronen must be hurt in order to be taken out, but he didn't appear to be injured in any way (the Sabres broadcast booth seemed perplexed by the move, so if there was an injury, the viewers never saw it).
This creates a really curious scenario where teams can seemingly swap a goalie mid-shootout whenever they please. It's just another thing for the league to look into.
