Is there a way to save the event logs in evtx format from remote computer to local computer with MMC?

Hi, I love the MMC to manage my servers very much. I installed the RSAT, and the MMC is a very good utility to manage the services on the severs remotely. You can see the following screenshot. Many services are managed by my console.
However, when I tried to save the event logs as evtx format from remote server to my local laptop with MMC, it failed. I cannot understand why Microsoft doesn't allow it. I have to RDP to every server and save the event logs. It's too troublesome. And I believe Mircorosft originally recommend us to use RAST and MMC to manage remote servers!
- Servers: Windows Server 2008 R2

OK, thanks. But Why Microsoft designed like this? I cannot understand.
