I mean, I'm not sure that Flyers fans are used to see competent goalies play if they think that kind of goal is acceptable. It's a simple geometric save, you cut the angle, it is literally impossible for the shooter to beat you barring an insane defelection.
Yeah, I guess it is impossible to shoot the puck just past the goaltender, off the post so it bounces into the net. The goal we just saw simply didn't happen...

Seriously, there was maybe 1 centimeter space that Boucher gave up. You are eager to tie him a noose from that. I'd rather give kudos to the shooter for finding that centimeter. I'm assuming if that was scored on the other and of the ice, you'd be praising how great a shooter [insert name here] was for finding that 1 centimeter, not declare Thomas a horrible goalie because of it.
