Also he wouldn't have had his foot "pushed" off the post so easily if he hadn't fallen to his stomach and instead stood tall and shifted his weight over to hug the post than putting himself in such a vulnerable position.
If he doesn't stretch his left pad and end up on his stomach than he doesn't make the 2nd save. And yes, when you're in that position the post will absolutely push the skates enough to create a gap. Don't forget that this game is played on ice.

"stood tall and shifted his weight" doesn't even register. He was in the b-fly from the 1st save and again, only by stretching can he get his left skate to the post for the 2nd save in time. You'd be very hard pressed to find a goalie that would have played that any different.
