Best Answer

A goalie can easily be called for tripping, but they can get away easier with it than a player. If the player is tripped inside teh crease it can be deemed legal, or if it was a pokecheck and the player tripped or something like that it can be deemed okay, but if the goalie runs up sticks out his leg it could be called tripping.

It can also be considered okay if the two players collide.

What is a shootout in a NHL hockey game?

Shootout happens after the game is tied. When the game ends, the team goes to overtime and after that, if the game is still a tie, they go to shootout. That's when it's player against goalie and the player has one chance to shoot on the goalie to score. The team at the end that has the most goals wins the game. They're fun to watch :) Hope this helped!! XD

What are the lines in front of the goalie in hockey?

It's called the crease. And like a pitcher's mound (just ask Oakland's Dallas Braden) it's the goalie's office. A player from an opposing team is technically not allowed to stand in the area or he is in danger of being penalized although, sometimes they get away with it. A player from your own team is not allowed to cover, freeze, or in any manner hold on to the puck in that area. The goalie can of course do any of those things.

Because it is an entirely different position. It is the only position in hockey that, if you make a mistake, it is recorded on the scoreboard. It takes a different mental approach for a hockey goalie than a player. Also, goalies are on the ice for the entire game, barring being relieved of duties or injury. Hope this helps.
