He literally could have stood up and done nothing and stopped it as long as he was on his angle.

I kind of wanted Lu to get a shutout this game so please spare me this 'attacking Lu' business.
Exactly. Perfect form, bad save selection. He likely expected Eberle to cut hard across the crease, but should've just stayed upright and trusted the D to force Eberle wide, which it did. GREAT shot, but shouldn't have gone in.

It happens.
