This is particularly evident on the Vesey goal. Instead of going into a half-butterfly blocker save.. He pops into the butterfly then does his far-side leg and arm extension. This requires two movements instead of one. Costing Subban the second he needs to get out on top of the puck and save it.
He needs to trust his reflexes and athleticism more. No need to be so technical on every shot.
Yes. This is what i was thinking in terms of dropping to the butterfly.
I listened to the game first on the radio and they were talking about how the yanks would be targeting upstairs on him.
