He threw the puck at Leighton's feet and Leighton somehow managed to **** that up. I don't know if you've ever played goalie. One of the first things they teach you when you're young is that on angle plays like that, you get down and put your paddle down perpendicular to the ice. That was as elementary a play/save as it gets in hockey, yet somehow Leighton managed to make it one of the biggest goals in hockey history.
What I don't understand is how people can say it was just a bad luck moment. Leighton's fundamentals the whole series were poor..hence the result and his pedestrian stats. He was poor with his five hole, hugging the post, and he was playing so far back in the net he was literally sitting in the first row back there. I lost at least a year of my life everytime a shot was made against him. Anybody who has played hockey knows he played poor that whole series and my god even Holmgren although trying to sugarcoat the situation said Leighton didn't really give the team a chance to win so he signs him and he may have to be our starter going forward especially if he has nothing else up his sleeve or his plan Z doesn't pan out....
