This is the double edged sword. It’s great when you are leading and you don’t have to get a extra guy on the ice and empty your net, not so much when you are the team that is losing with very little time left. It is very cool though when your team gets a goal from the empty net. Those players are very precise. They can shoot that puck the length of the rink and put it in the back of the net. Fun and exciting as long as it’s your win, aggravating as all get out if it’s not. But I’ve been on both sides and it’s just how the game is played.
An empty net goal, or colloquially an empty netter (abbreviated as EN or ENG), occurs in ice hockey when a team scores a goal into a net with no goaltender (goalie) present. The Dallas Stars currently hold the NHL record for most empty net goals in a season.
Empty net goals usually occur in one of two different occasions:
Here you can enjoy the video of one of the sharpest shooters in the NHL, Patrick Kane !!! He makes it look real easy, doesn’t he. I love how they still get so excited when they make a goal.
