You have a clear shot at the puck and the skater has few options. By staying back and crouching/kneeling, you give the shooter waaay too much room for no reason.
The Flyers had the lead and Bryz gave up the tying goal with a minute left so I can understand keeping him in the game. Plus he had some semblance of goaltending. After the 5th goal, it was obvious Vokoun didn't have it. Yet they left him in the game. What were they expecting to happen?
And while these games are entertaining and laughable, I don't consider it hockey. More like a train wreck you can't look away from.
