It's a gimmick move that would only work once but it had a better chance than most shootout attempts.

Going forward everyone has seen it (I doubt most NHL goalies saw the AHL highlight) so it has almost no chance of working.
The moment I saw him with his stick at Center Ice I knew what he was up to. I'd never seen this before, I knew exactly that he was going to try some lame ass floor hockey move. Except with a puck you can't raise with the blade on top of puck. All the goalie has to do is have bottom of net covered. The goalie would have enough time to lay down on the ice across the goal being how telegraphed this play was.
