How is a breakaway overrated? Stats show that goalies stop 9/10 shots on net, but there's a huge difference between the 10 shots from the blue line and 10 shots from the slot.

The Anaheim breakaway was a partial breakaway, but Theo did a good job of covering the angle, making the save, and then stopping the rebound as well. It was a good save. There's not need to overexaggerate it, but there's no need to imply that anyone would have stopped it too.
