can somebody answer this hockey question please??

last nite when the devils scored an empty net goal, their player was taken down from behind on a breakaway, which would result in a penalty shot had the puck not gone in the net...how would that work, would their be a penalty shot with no goalie, since im pretty sure u can only have the players on the ice at that time....big discussion at the bar last nite, nobody could figure it out

No, its a goal if you get taken down on a breakaway on an open net no matter what automatic goal

It would have been ruled an automatic goal. Penalty shot on empty results in a goal. Same thing if a guy throws his stick at the puck.
