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.
You're not supposed to bite shot, and that's what he did. He left no room to get over to make the save. A great goalie will anticipate what will happen and leave room for the other option if he's wrong.

I can't agree about Bachman's hockey IQ. He doesn't read plays that well, often makes the wrong decision.
