I understand your point but the fact is that goal is scored in 35% of SO attempts at the end no matter of circumstances...
In case of the goalie its about the movement and reaction. Exactly how you wrote how they forces shooters hands a and I think it's not rare. It's a skill. Someone has it, others not. Eg. our goalie in Czech league, he has really bad season but on SO he is beast. He is very quick, leave small spaces for the shooters and forces them to mistakes.
