Not the Flyers guardian. He's telekinetic. Ha! pwned!! (do I really need to ?)

Seriously, I was trying to find a video of it, but from the angles I remember, Bob could have done a much better job getting square to the shot and minimizing the potential bounce past him. Of course stuff happens, but great goaltenders make this a rarity. We shouldn't be talking about a questionable goal every 1-2 games.
