That video doesn't show the screw up. He had a perfect chance to catch a floater and he messed it up which led to the Kane goal. Look it up on YouTube. There's a great view of it taken from a fan in the crowd. You can even here the tension from the crowd when he dropped it. It was a perfect example of shaky. He's just lucky they won in OT because without that gold medal, his life would be a lot more miserable. Happened against Slovakia too. Canada's up 3-0. Luongo gives up a deflating goal from behind the net and all of a sudden Slovakia is all over Canada and damn near made a comeback.
