I don't understand this logic. Why do some people think that we only saw one of the two; 1) a blown chance by Malkin or 2) a great save from Vehanen, when in reality we saw both.
1) Had Malkin gotten the puck just 30 cm off the ice surface, it would have been a certrain goal, which no one, Chuck Norris and MacGyver included, could have stopped. So yes, Malkin blew his chance.
2) Nevertheless, the shot Malkin did produce (a fast one-timer less than a meter from goal, goalie moving sideways) required the goalie to make an outstanding save in order to deny the goal. Vehanen was able to make that save.
We saw both. QED
