The 2 main things a "hot goalie" does, IMO, is:
1) Alter a teams typical play by making an opposing team shoot more fine to the corners, thereby missing the net instead of just putting the puck on net.
And 2) give confidence to your defense that the initial shot will be stopped and they can better relax and play their own game and role and even maybe take a chance on generating an odd-man rush.

These are in addition to the momentum changes of making that huge save.
