He played that exactly how he was supposed to. The goalie always plays the shot, the defensemen play the pass. Sedin has elite hockey IQ and if he sees the goalie playing the pass he will snipe it. Just because he doesn't do it often doesn't mean he can't.

Bachman has an excellent ability to read the play. If he didn't he would never have made it to the NHL as a small goalie.
