Again, if you make that save selection, which I hate, you've gotta close that gap.
No he could have mishandled that puck and it looked like he was just going to take it to the end boards. Allen did what any NHL goalie would have done, and that gap isn't really closeable when you hug the post like that. The width of the pads is so large that you will leave that little hole there.
