Down 2-0, Colorado Pulls Varlamov With Five Minutes Left In The 3rd Period

With Boston leading 2-0, Patrick Roy pulled goaltender Semyon Varlamov for an extra attacker with five minutes to go in the 3rd period.

Neither team scored but do you think more teams should pull their goalie a little earlier when down by at least two goals?

Roy explains his decision and you can watch it below.  I edited the video to start at the 3 minute mark, so it may be a little slow in loading.
