No. In hockey, you can substitute without a stoppage in play. In football (american soccer) you need to wait for play to stop.

What does pull a goalie mean?

Pull a goalie means to take the goalie out and use him as a offender to get an extra goal. Its kinda usless. This is NOT useless in Hockey! Maybe Soccer (if you can? dont follow Soccer) but there have been many late goals scored in Hockey (NHL) because of the extra attacker, happened a few times in the NHL Playoffs that just passed (2010 as in yrs passed also) also gives the other team a easier chance to score, but down a goal anyway. So nothing to lose. But by no means is this useless? Many games have been tied up because of the extra attacker! Hope your talking about Soccer? Becasue it is absoultley NOT useless in Hockey! I know this for a fact because i beton every NHL playoff game and every game`s spread was + or - 1.5, so many games the team without the goalie ended up winning by 2 instead of 1 because of. But also were games were they tied the game up too put game into OT, yes it`s more likely you score an open netter or clank it off post liek Crosby, but like i said "nothign tolose" (except screw the spread up? ha) but several teams tied games up because of the extra man.

Can you have 2 goalies pulled at same time?

Yes, but that would not be very good strategy for either team. The most common reason for pulling a goalie would be if your team is down by a goal or two with just a few minutes to play. By pulling the goalie the team would get an extra skater. If both teams pulled their goalies it would be 6 on 6 hockey with no goalies. That would just mean players would be shooting shots from their zone or center ice. Again, you can pull two goalies at the same time, but it would be meaningless.
