Do that on any goalie in the league, you'll score more often than not. The defence can't let those passes happen. Lateral movement is a big part of the game, one-timers are tough on goalies because they have to get from one side of the net to the other in a hurry.. now you're going to blame him for not getting to one side, to the other and then back? That's a lot of weight displacement, stops and push offs in the time it takes passes to go across the ice and a quick accurate NHL shot to be made. You have to cheat and know there will be those passes in order to be ahead of the game, but in the NHL you suspect your defence will be at least good enough to make the other team hesitant or block or at least deflect the pass.
