of course he didn't intentionally duck so it would go in the net .... people here need to get a grip.

if that wasn't deflected, and had gone over his head, it would have been an awful goal - all on him. goalies today go down into the butterfly 90% of the time. the puck that was shot low [butterfly save] now gets deflected and goes over his head.

it's easy to say "if he would not have gone into the butterfly, its an easy save" ...... news flash: the puck was shot low: goalies go into the butterfly to save them. every time. it hit the stick & went up over his head. would you love to see him be able to catch it over his head ? yes. was he out of position ? no.
