The funny thing is that he read the play right (five-hole), but still managed to screw up the technique so badly. You're supposed to cover the fivehold with your stick as you slide across, and goalie usually only pull their legs in if they've already felt or seen the puck go through.
Yup and he always gets the stick in the right place every time ... in practice.
