Betts so called "great move" is known to any HS forward. Goalies practice that pad extension routinely and every practice. Should Betts was able to lift the puck over the pad, kudos to him, it's hard to do as you need to snap the puck while arms are extended. But he just dragged it around the pad that Brysgalov failed to extend up to the post.
The wrap around scored by Dubi is a plain embarrassment. Those are no longer an option in contemporary NHL. You can see them on 8mm films or nowadays when goalie screws up, which was the case.
Did anyone ever call you a perfectionist?
