They'll do whatever it takes to prevent the shot, and if it means going on the PK...oh well. They don't trust him to make the save. And I mean, there are times where they could easily inhibit the opposing player's ability to shoot without taking a penalty, but that apparently isn't good enough and they'd rather shut him down like clutch and grab is still allowed. I can't blame them, because there have been times where they've challenged the shooter like normal, he gets a shot off, and it goes in. I've also noticed that Timonen and Coburn seem to be the biggest culprits. It's probably not a coincidence that they've also played with Bryzgalov the longest of any Dmen.
Lots of unnecessary blocked shots from angles that shouldn't go in.
