If he doesn't make that move, and Crosby does try to cut across his face, then Crosby probably scores backhand.

Mini-breakaways like that are always dangerous cuz you're not really ready for 'em.

Michael Leighton let a shot in off the *ing wall below the dot by making a completely inexplicable motion that allowed the shot to go through him, when there was no reason it ever should have.

The fact that you're comparing a shot from 5 feet away from the goalie to a shot from off the wall is a serious indictment of your intelligence.
